The Saxon Foot behaved themfelves to admiration, and they own that the Swedes d id the like. The two Kings fought like Lyons, and expofed themfelves in the moft dangerous places.'

Artillery. General Fleming was wounded in the A&ia/!, and 'Major General Marowiti, Collonel Qersdorf, Count Rem, and feveral other brav� Officers killed. The Polifh Nobility is matching to joyn the SaxoH Army, but as the King of Swtiiu 'is clofely following the Saxons, 'tis thought he will prevent their conjunction.
