'In the Conference which the Marquis de.Fenelon has lately had with tfie Prefident of the Week, upon the Courts he veries which the French Miniilry had made, during the between Qui her giving an Anfwer thereto; he difplayed all his Eloquence in expatiating*-upon this Subjeft, in order to give their High Mightineffes a certain Biafs. He fet forth theReafons which the States General had, to be offended at the\Qgeen of Hungary s manifeiling to repofe fo little Confidence in their High Mightineffes, and at her rejecting with fo much Haughtinefs, the Offers which had been adopted by them, and which were prppofed to her as juft and equitable by them, and under the Guaranty of the Republick : That the Conduft of the Court of Vienna was the more offenfive and bold at this Time, as it had a thpufand times affured their High Mightineffes that the Queen would do nothing, without'the Confent and Approbation of tfie States General: That (he would accept of no Propbfition but from the Republick, and under its Mediation and Guaranty : That in fhort, fhe would- blindfold agree to whatever the States General fliould prppofe -to her, being fatisfied of their knowing her Intentions, and that they would never attempt to talk to* her of an Accommodation, which wa" nor juft and equitable.
