While we wait for mote, important News from abroad* we imagine our Readers will not be difpleafed to fee the Tranflations of two fhort Letters that hare lately appeared JH^e Foreign P"nts. 'The firft -is-from the Kifjg cf, opaifcto the States-General, upon the recalling of the Marquis de St. Gilles, and expreffes the entire good Under-ftatrding between his Catholic Majefty and their High-Mightineffes. ' High and Might) Lords, our Dear and Good Friends, * We have refolved to call home te our Court the Mar- * quis de St. Gilles, our Ambaffador to you, in order to\. ' beftow on him Marks of the Approbation he has merited' * of us by his good, Conduct. It is with this View that * we have defUned him for fome Employment, wherein hei * may exercife.hi Talents to the great Advantage*of. our * Service. The laft' Orders we fend him is to reiterate to, * your High-Mightinefles, at his Departure, Affuranccs of the true Efteem we preferve towards you, and of the' 1 iincerc Defire. ^herewith we wifh to fee that perfeft: * Harmony contihaei which reigns between the two Na-f' ' tions, and to which his Zeal has always contributed ' being thoroughly _perfuaded, that this Circumftance has: ' rendered his long Fimbaffy agreeable to you. !

The- more.glorious are they to the ' Monarch ; and the more agreeable, as they were pur-' chafed at fo fmall an Expence of the Blood and Tears of ' his Subje&s.

May our Succeffe�, at laft, ' infpire all Hearts with thofe pacific Sentiments, which ' thofe Succeffes do but the more augment in the Heart of ' his Majeity. Let us not doubt but the Source of fo ma-' ny Proiperities is the King's invariable Love of Peace, ' find Peace herfelf would be the Crown of the Crown of ' taem all: She would be the moft precious Recompence ' of the Coaqueror's Moderation. .
