ExtraS of a private Letter from the Hague, Atguft 14. ' Some of the publick Papers told us a. few Day ago, � that the Frenco Troops had plundered the Town of * Huy ; and fince that they have laid, that the Troops of � the Allies had burnt the Magazines of Forrage which ' the French had made in the faid Town and at other * Places in the County of Liege. The Regard we have for * Truth obliges us to inform the Publick, that the Country * of Liege, having chcfen a Neutrality, ought therefore ' to be iecure from any Infults, and enjoy the fame Free-' dom of Lommerce both at home and abroad, as is en-' joy'd by the Litiesof Dort, Amlterdam, Rotterdam ^nd ' others, where all Sons of Goods and Merchandize are ' dany bought up, and frnt off for Spain, Fiance, and all * Farts of the World. Und r Favour of this r reed, m of ' Trade, io:ne Burghers of Dinnt, Liege, Huy and Bra-' bant did jom in Partnership to buy u^j Hay and Straw, ' to'fell again either to the Forra^e--ontraiflcrs for the ' Ga rilon ^f Nature, to whom chey ht.d already deiiveied ' above 6-02 Quintals, or to the Troops that pafs through * or ioj iuin, fucceffively in the County of Liege ; which * they did without any Favour or Partiality 10 either Side, ' no Body having oee:i able to prove that they bought or ' laid up ar.y Fo:rage for the Account of the French Com-1 mifiaries. Matters Handing thus, aie Binon, Captain of ' an Independent C mprmy in tiie Army of the Allies, en-4 tred Huy on the zyth of July, with a Detachment of * the Garnfcnof Namure, and after having burnt the Pro-' v;fi n or S;raw which (everal Burghers had by them in ' their Houles, he proceeded to '1 hiange and other Vil-' lage5, where he fet Fhre to upwards of 24 Hay-Ricks, * which the Company abovemencioned had gather d toge-' ther fince the Ytari742. Upon which M. Hulfc, Mi-' niiier of the B;lhop and Prince of Liege, received L et-' ters from this hit City, dated the gth [nltant, expreffing * gre^t Surprze at this Way of Proceeding ; obferving at ' the fame time, that itmuit produce an effect, quite con- * trary to what might be experfted or intended from it, � fince all that Forrage was to have been fent to the Queen ' of Hungary's and the RepubLck's Troops in Gajrifon at * Namure and Charleroy ; that the faid Company's Cor-' refpondents in the/e two Towns, remark in their Letters * the Uneafinefs they are under leit the French fhould � make Reprifals. in burning the Forrag" they may fufpect , * to be delhned for the Troops of the Allits, and that they ' leave the World to judge, who fuffcrs moli by it, the * Company who arc turned by burning their Forrage, or � the Inhabitants of the Country of Liege, or the Garrifon * of Namure and ihe Troops of the Allies ; or lallly, the * French Armies, who are in no Want of Forrage in the ' plentiful Country they are now Mailers of.
