    In 1809 Colonel Lehmanowsky was attached to that part of Napoleon’s army which was stationed at Madrid.

    I looked for documentation of it, and I found this 1848 book:

    Auricular Confession and Popish Nunneries - William HOGAN (Roman Catholic Priest.) - Google Books

    The text in the OP's link matches the text in that book word-for-word, as far as I can tell.

    There may be earlier accounts, like from some on Napoleon's armies, but I don't have the patience to look much further.
