This raelancholly Nfws has much afHifted their Mj jerries, the whole Court, and the Nation in ge-r.eral, there being te* Families which had not there either Relations or Friends. The King's Lois is irreparable, not only in the Eftahlifli ents, but in the Trea lures that have been kept there during the War, and were not to be fent to Europe'till after a P-n-e.
