That he has been oblig'd to borrow upon his own Credit.Jewels and other things the g^reat fumms of money which he his laid out for Fortifying the faid olaces and making new Levies. That his Electoral Highnefi hopes that che Scares will Second his good intentions, and Shut up their ears to the insinuations offoms who would engage thsm into fuch meafures as were i.nconfiltenc with their own fecuriry. That he thought that; his aflociating himfeif to fivera! Electors, Prtsces and Circles ofthe Empire, to divert from their Country che misfortune of a Bloody War, would prove very advanrageous in particular co this Electorate.
