Note 4 in the author's biography of Felicia Hemans.

Colonel Browne, C.B., was for many years an officer in the 23rd- the Welch Fusiliers. My eldest brother was an ensign in that regiment, and fell at Albuera. Conversing, by chance, on the subject, with Colonel Browne, he told me he had taken from the field my mortally-wounded brother, who next morning"died in his arms. [365n]
