The Campaign of the Duke oc Burgundy is the great fubjeftofall Converfations, but at trie fame'time chat every body endeavours to magnifie the Utaiery of that Prince, they take the Liberty to pafs very le-vere Reflections on die conduct of the Marefchaj of Baufflert, who, as ihey fay, has not improved to the Kings advantage, the favourable opportunity, the length of the Siege of Keyjerwaert gave him, and has amufed himfelf with ruining the Country oiClecvet, inilead of belleging Grave, ot any other Dutch Town, which would have fjved Kaffenoa'.rt. The Elector of Ctlogn has complained to me King againft the Capitulation of that place, and tijat the Govef-nour mould have inlifted on the razing of tile Fortifications; but we don't know what aut'wer our Minifters tave returned; and norwithfbnding that Prince knows that rhe Allies had taken that reibluti-* on before hand, he feems to have undeniabl* reafons to complain againlt u�, forbad we regarded the In-tereft of that Prince, Mondeuv BlAtisvUie would have demanded the quite contrary :hing,or at leaft would not have made it a part of the Articles of Capttalati* on. This Court feems very much concerned for Landau, for noswithftanding the place is ftrong, and defendedby a brave Govemour, yet thej are fen-fible that the Garrifon being weak, and wanting'i'e-veral neceiTaries, they c?nnoc hold out Jong enough to g'ive us time to get a fufficient Army to relieve it. The Council of Finances is daily taken up about Wiys arid means to rails Money, tor the Kings charges increasing everyday, the Funds wbrck were provided for, do not picve iufSciertt^ amd iiew Taxes muit be laid upon the People.

On $%ni�j hit a great Council of War was held here in the prcfence of the King of Pruflix and the Ministers of the Emperor and England; and the Earl of A'-hlone, General Dofat and fevera/ other Officers of note came hither for that purppfo ; but rhe refolutions taken therein are kept ftill very private , tho there is no doubt but they have concerted meafures for {obliging the Duke of Burgundy "to retire into the Spanijb Provinces. The Earl, of Athlme is returned to Nimegbenl, u-here our Forces difperfed along the Rhine and the Waal, are marching to form the Gtand Atmy, which is to act againft the Duke of Burgundy. They tell us, that another Army is to be formed in the neighbourhood of Cohgtt, and that they will make an in-vafion into the Dutchy of Luxemburg; but time will difcover the truth of it.
