The Memorial presented by the Count <T Avaux being very ambiguous, efpeciaJly in what relates to the admUGon of the Envoy of the King of England into the Conferences to be held about the Succeflion,the Deputies of the States for Foreign Affairs bad yefterday a Conference with that Ambaf-fador, to know more particularly his meaning, and itgnifkd unto him, that the States could nor would not enter into any Treaty, but in conjun&ion with England, their Interefts in this cafe being infeparible, �nd that therefore they defired a pofitive anfwer in ihat point, especially now, that the owning of the King ef Spain, ha$ removed the chief objection, which was made againft Treating with the Minifters b�England. We do not know yet what anfwer he Returned, but 'tis likely, that he has defired time I*have an anfwer from Pdra:Many are of opinion,that tftefif Conferences wilJ not have the delired effeft, and tfifat the French will draw this great affair into a lin-flring Negotiation.

In the mean time, Money , is fo very fcarce with us chat the like has not been known in the memory of Men, and there is no caufe to wonder at it, conhdering what vaft fumms are daily fent abroad for preventing the defigns.of our Enemies.
