(as it flands in the Brujfels Gazette J * The Resolutions daily taken by their High Mighti-' neffes in the Affairs of the prefent Conjuncture, become * more vigorous and more likely to anfwer the Engage-' ments contr^fted by the Repuolick with their Allies. ' The Menaces, the artful Infinuations of a certain Foreign ' Miniiter, backed by the Reprefentations and Suggeltions * of fome others, anfwer no other End but to make the * StatesGeneral obferve an impenetrableSecrecy in all their ' Proceedings ; tho' at the fame Time they are not fo * myfterious, but that the Miniiter in Queftion may eafily * fee that be can draw no Manner of Advantage from 4 them.
