Victory having been obtain'd by the Spaniards in Italy caufed great Uneafinefs, from which the People did not recover till the Arrival of Count- d'Althan, who gave the Queen a very different Relation of that Aftion, and at the fame time made it evidently appear to her Majefty, in the Prefence of the Grand Duke, and a great Number of Lords, that if the Ground would have permitted the. Auftrian Horfe to have join'd in the Aftion, and fupported the Foot, not a Spaniard would have efcaped, as well by reafon of the extraordinary Confufion they were under, as becaufe the Cavalry would have been fent to break down and burn the two Bridges, which were of great ufe to them in their precipitate Retreat.

Warmth as it was fome time ago ; and tho' the Province of Holland continues in the fame Refolution, yet it's thought by many, that, this Affair will not be effected fo foon as fome People imagin'd it would, and efpecially fo long as the Arms of her Majefty of Hungary continues fo victorious, or that this Princefs preferves an Equilibrium in the prefent War. The Court of France has lately made fuch perfuafive Remonftrances to the States General, that five of the Provinces- are ftrongly againft the March of the 20000 Men.
