' During the Stay of the Abbot of St. Hubert at this Court, be was inceffantly foliiciting the Miniftry to engage ' his inoft Chriilian Majefty to hearken to the Demands * that he had made in a Memorial which he had fince 1 his Arrival here prefented. This Abbot addrefled him-' felf amongft the .'reft of the Minifters to the Marfhal � de Noailles, to whom he reprefented, how important it * would be to the Court of France to take Advantage of * the prefent Times, in order to revive its Rights as well to � the .faid Abby as to diverfe other Territories, which * through Negligence, and other Circumftances, now ac- * knowledge the JariTdi&io'n of Luxembourg. The Mar-� lhal de Naailles, after having attentively hearkened to ' him, aik'dl.im how hepropofed to caufe the Dependen-� cies, which had withdrawn themfelves from under the � Subje&ion of his moil Chriilian Majefty, to be brought * again under his Dominion and Prote&ion. To which k the Abbot anfwer'd," that he only demanded a Body of � 6000 Men, and bat a Part "of them to be old Troops, � that he would undertake to eonduft rhis Body fueh a � Rout, as that no one" could with Juftice complain : That * he would diitribute them in the Towns and Villages, &c. 1 which had been obliged to renounce the French Intereft : * That in refpeft to the Succefsi there would Be no more * Difficulty than in going to his Abby; and that he offer'd ' to pawn his Life, if Things did not pafs with fo much * Facility, thit there would be no occafion even to fire a^ * Mufktt; beciufe he faid he knew the-poor Subjefts had 'long hoped for a Deliverer from the heavy OpprefSon of � the Aullrian Government. The Marfhal de Noailles ' replied to the Abbot, by telling him that the prefent ' Situation of A/Fairs did not permit the Court of France * to do any thing precipitately, but on the contrary oblig'd ' it to aft with the utmoil Caution and Cireumfpe&ion in ' refpedt to the Difpofition of its Troops, in order to give � Umbrage to No-body ; and therefore, notwithstanding '.- the ProCpeQ. of all the Advantages which the Abbot had � reprefented, it was by no means a Time to put this P10-' jed in Execution.' .
