Napoleon’s plan is working well.
1st corps have joined 13th corps at Hameln, both rest and resupply and prepare to attack Hildesheim.
3rd corps have taken Celle and with it three days supplies abandoned by the Prussians.
Blucher reacts to the loss of Celle by ordering 1st, 2nd and 4th corps to concentrate at Lehre.
3rd corps is ordered to hold Hildesheim if possible, but retreat to Lehre if not.
