  • Text: Les Russes ont infligé de sanglantes défaites aux armées turques ; ils leur ont fait de nombreux / prisonniers, parmi ces derniers un de leurs meilleurs généraux. / Les soldats turcs étaient si mal équipés qu'une grande partie sont morts de froid et de faim, car / ils n'étaient plus ravitaillés. Les combats ont en lieu sur des montagnes à de grandes hauteurs. / L'armée russe s'est montrée infatigable et courageuse ; l'artillerie, surtout, a fait des prodiges.
