Extracl of a private Letter from Amfterdam. * We know that the States have fent to the Abbe de la Ville, the French Minifter, an Anfwer to his Memorial concerning the March of the 6000 Dutch Troops, for the Service of his Britannick Majefty in Scotland, under Pretence that they confift chiefly of the Garrifons of Tournay and Dendermonde, this Meafure is contrary to the Articles of Capitulation. But what the Contents were is yet uncertain. Some Perfons however, who are well acquainted with Affairs, wi,I have it to contain in Sub-ftance, " That as thefe Troops go only in Quality of Auxiliaries againft tiebel Subjccls, and as his mo/l Chriftian Majdty has more than once declared, that he had no Concern in the Affairs of Scotland, their High Mighunefles could not think that fending them was any t ontravention of thofe Articles." Upon this Abbe de la Ville has infinuated, that it will be otherwife under-ftood, and that he mult immediately fend a Copy of their Anfwer to the Marfhal de Saxe, who has already Inttruftions what to do on this Oceafion.' n People are very attentive to the Motions of the Troops I ' under Count de Clermont-Gallerande, who have already * patted the Sambre in two Divifions, and at two Places, � to the Number of about 30,000 Men. Some Advices � from the Netherlands iniinuate, that they are going up- * on an Enterprize which was not expedfed, and that as the * Garrifon of Luxembourg is known to be very feeble, ' not having Men enough to defend the Works, which are more numerous there than in any other Fortrefs, it is * fear'd their JBufmefsmay be to furprize that City. ' It is certain that the two Maritime Powers would neg- * left nothing to gain over the King of PrinTia, and to '* bring the .Queen of Hungary entirely into their Views: * But the Thoughts of his Pruflian Majefty are not known � on the one Side, while on the other, it is certain the T Dolphin, Three Doors above Birchin-lane in Lonthill Where great Variety of Gowns are kept ready made, of rich Silk Damafks, fine Scotch Plaids, Flower'd Ruffels.
