[To THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR."] Sin,—The writer of the

letter in the Spectator of July 15th may be interested to know that another survivor of Wellington's army of occupation, 1815-18, is the eldest daughter of Lord FitzRoy Somerset (afterwards Lord Raglan), who was born in Brussels on May 16th, 1815, just a month before Waterloo, where her father lost his arm. As soon as he was recovered from his wound, they rejoined the Duke at Paris, and remained there until the end of the occupation. Miss Somerset is living in London, the centre of a large circle of friends and relations, and retaining a vivid recollection of London society in her girlhood. Besides her intimate recollection of the Duke of Wellington, she can recall parties at old Prince Talleyrand's when he was Ambassador in London ; and Princess Lieven gave a ball in her honour when she came out.—I am, Sir, &c., A READER OF THE "SPECTATOR."
