,n t is docu$ent, Burnet $a+es an assess$ent o' t e ar$y. -as t is an accurate assess$ent. - y or " y not. 1. David G. Burnet

David G. Burnet gave an over view opinion on the army and its potential. I feel that this assessment was accurate but does not say all it has to say. It the letter it states that the army requires reinforcements which indicates that the army does not have enough people to fight on an offensive side. We can tell that they soldiers have gained experience based on the time this letter was sent. his letter was sent a few months after the revolution started so they have a good idea of what they should be doing. !ost of the soldiers may have fallen or are in an ill state. In the first paragraph it shows that panic has subsided and confidence has gained. In the last paragraph" it writes of the army#s readiness to fight. We could tell that they were ready and excited to fight$$
