We wwe (eve-, * ral Days in Sufpence, whether the Rebels would not pay us a Vifit, but as they are aftually march'd to Lan- ' cafter, we are under no Planner of Fear of their coming * this Way.

This Account may be ' depended on, for a Perfon who came from Prefton Yef- * terday (which is about 50 Miles from this Town) has * made Oath of it to the Officers of the Army quartered * here.  We have Lord Semple and Brigadier General * Bland, with their Regiments, &c. &c.
