' We are farce yet recovered from our Fright in Rela-* ladbn � to the Proj efts of the Perfian Monarch : Nay, < we have not been without fome Sufpidooa, that-the � March of the Ruffiat^Troops towards Aftracan was con-� certed with Schath.Nadir,: that they might/all tlporr this � Empire with their united Forces. However, we begin � to be pretty eafy about the Court-of Peteribargb,: the � Ruffian Mi�ifter having given "usI the ftrongeft "Affurarices ~* that their Troops marched towards Aftracan with no Mother View but to keep in Awe the Perflate,' who then 1 threatened his Court* ......

From Hanover we .have" no other Advices, but that Couriers are continually going to and fro," whofe Difpatches are kept fo fecret, that it is impoffible to penetrate the Subject of them ; all they can fay to. the Matter is, that they are affured there are fome Negotiajaons on the Tapis of the greateft Importance. The laft Letters from Turin, entirely deftroy the Report that lately prevailed, as if a Treaty between his Cathplick Majefty and the King of Sardinia was going on ; fo far from it, that they now affure us the Piedmonteze Troops have received their ultimate Orders to hold themfelves in Readineft to march and feek the Spaniards, From Brufiels we hear, that Geocral Nadafty with his Huffars, is harraffing the Army of Count .Seckendorft, who has retreated from Wafferbourgh, and that he has even carried off feveral Prifoneri within Cannon Shot of the Gates of Munich. ~ His MAJESTY's moft gracious Letter to the General AJftm-bly of the Chunb of Scotland met at Edinburgh, May 12, 1743. - .
