The Prince of Orange and the 69th

Dear Robert and All,

It's well known the story about the Prince of Orange and the 69th at Quatre Bas, but I never read why he ordered the unit to form in line( perhaps to face infantry attacks?). Does anyone knows if he wrote an inform of this before the battle ( letter , inform to his supeior etc) or if exist any explanation or even if he was acussed of something for his performance during this battle?.

regards,

Manuel
