' Notwithftanding all which, it's credibly reported that � their High Mightineffes have fo far given Attention to ' the Plan of Accommodation fome time ago prefented to * them.by the Court of France, as to be actually employ'd * in drawing up another, by means of which they hope ' to-fucceed in accommodating the Differences between the * Emperor and her Majefty of Hungary.
