Extraff of a Letter from Edinburgh, Feb. i." " On Thurfday, at Three in'the Morning, the Duke of Cumberland arrived at the Abbey, not in the leaft fatigued.. He,went to Bed two Hours after, and fleptnear three Honrs; fo that by Eight he was bufy with Gen. Hawley� and General. Hufke, and the reft of the principal Officers, who all appeared in Boots. His Highnefs had not Time to go into Edinburgh all that Day. '1 he Ladies paid their Compliments at the Time appointed, very richly drefs'd; his Royal Highnefs received them with great Familiarity, faluted each of them, and rnade a fhort Speech to them. One Mifs Car, or Keir, made a very fine Appearance ; at the Top of her Stays, on her Breaft, was a Crown welt done in Beagles, and underneath, in Letters extremely plain tobefeen, was William Duke of Cumberland ; on the Right Side of the Crown was the Word Broth's, and on the Left Hen. His Royal Highnefs received die Clergy for a Quarter of an Hour, and'rnade a long Speech to them, in which he thank'd (hem for their Zeal and Loyalty; and as foon as they" were gone, he held a Council of War, in which it was determin'd to march the Army agarnft the Rebels next Morning. His Royal Highnefs does not chafe to have Refpeftpaid him as a Prince.'but contents himfelf to appearas a General, and admits no ktgerGimd to ^ttnd than Gen Jfavvley had. He would not Set AdnuBing,J northie Caftle,�reonhis Arrival ;"but the City was finely illuntjnated, both by Whig* and Jacobites, the laft to fave their Windows; notwith-ftanding which the Mob hroke thofe of the laft, and there is not a Foot of Glafs here to Jbe had at any Price j fo that many Families are ftarving of Cold. The Duke thought to have got up to the Rebels Time entugh to force them to a 'Battle, by the following Stratagem, viz. he gave Orders that the-Army fhould be reviewed on Friday Morning early, and that they mould march on Saturday Morning againft the Rebels; and no doubXIntelligence of -this was-carried to rhe fome of his Edinburgh Friends: But on Friday Morning, as foon as the Duke got the Troqps under Arms, heanarched with themdire&ly Weftward, and reached JJnlithgowiby Thjee in the Afternoon. The common Men among theRehcls, who, tis {aid, had been made to believe ithe Dukejof Cumberland was not with the Army, but -fome other Perfon in his Nanje, werefo intimidatedhy this JnHancCof his Courage and Diligence, that they could no longer be impofedon by their Chiefs; but fled with theJittnoitiPie-cipitatbn. Our Army rafted atLihlithgow, and the.Duke was on Horfeback next Morning by Four. Four hundred more Argyllfhire Men have join'd our Army at Falkirk, The'Earl of Hopeton has prefented the Dukewithsa Coach, and twelve vejy fine Horfes. 1 Five Companies from Berwick have jbinM our Army.
