That Ge eral was expefied at "Florence the 1 ith, in order to rcfume the Command of the Army, which he had laid down on Account of his bad State of Health, and to concert with the Regency a new Military Plan lefs ex per five than that which has been hitherto followed.

In his March he received felfe Advice that the Garrifon was but zoo ftrorig; in Confequence of which he funimon'd the Place, but was anfwered, that they would not hear.any Thing of furrendering. In the mean while, as Count Nadafti perceived that the Enemy's Baggage be. gan to defile off on the other Side towards Augfburg, he ordered a Lieutenant and thirty Men to Tall upon it: The Liemenant executed his Orders with fo much Saccefs, that he ebliged the Baggage to return'; upon which the Enemy's Cavalry {allied upon the lieutenant and his Corps, who was immediately fupported by General Nadafti with his whole Command ; and during the Skirmifh the Enemy conducted their Baggage into the City, in the mean while the Commandant Colonel Sefibelftorff, �ent from Fridberg, contrary to all military Rules, with an Intention to receive himfelf farther inflruclions from the Elector of Bavaria at Augfburg, but was taken Prifoner by our Troops. And notwithltanding General Nadafti was informed by a Defer -ter, that the Garrifon did not confift of 200 Men, but of above 1000, he fummon'd it a Second Time, and offered them a free Retreat, excepting Auflrian Defeners, provided they would discover and deliver to him the Magazines, and all the Ammunition and Artillery ; but the Garrifon replied they could give no Anfwer as their Commandant was a Prifoner, and therefore mufl wait for Orders . from his Electoral Highnefs.
