Baron PoIJnitx, on Account of the Character given from them laft Week ot M. Saxe> I found that of another Perfon of high Dif-tinftion lately deceafed, whofe Memory defervfes the more to be regarded,in England-, for his Relation to the Princefs of Wales, and for the Honour of the Garter not long fmce conferred on him by his Majefty. The Baron tells us in one Place, (Vol. 1. p. go of the OfitavoEdition) that 4 John JddpbustfSaxe-Wtiftnfetds 4 was a Prince of uncommon Merit, whofe Sentiments and * Adions were no Dijjparagement to his Birth.' Hefpeaks of him thus more fully after, (Ibid. p. 114.) < The Duke, 4 who was born Sept, 4, 168;, is, of a good Stature. His * Air, Behaviour and Way of Thinking denote his Birth; ( end never was Prince more worthy or being fo. He is ' beneficent, generous; and all the Qualities which attract ' Love and Efteem are united in his Perfon. -After having � fpent his early Days in the Service of Heffe-Caffcl, he ' entered into that of the late King, and in the feveral * Campaigns which he made in Germany, Italy, Flanders, ' and Poland, he always fignaliz'd his Valour : Particu- * larly not long ago, when he fupported the Reputation of ' the King's Army before Dantzick in a conspicuous Man-' ner. His Goodnefs, his Modeny, and his Care to di�-4 tinguiih true Merit, gain him the Love and Veneration ' both of the Officers and Soldiers. This Prince is actually ' a Lieutenant-General in the Emperor's Service, General ( of the Saxon Horfe and Foot, Colonel of the Life-' Guards, and of a Regiment of Foot, and Knight of the � Order of the White Eagle. He is the Widower of the < Princefs of Saxe-Eyfenach, and profenes the Lutheran � Religion. ' The Author of the Prefent State of Germany informs us farther, That he had erne Son by his Dutchefs, the Princefs of Saxe-Eyfenach, who died in his Infancythat he was highly confidered at the Court of Dreiden, and dignified with the Title of a Prince of the Blopd. It was in 1734, upon the Death of FieldrMarfbal Wackerbaith, that he was nominated GeneralilEmo of the Troops of the Electorate of Saxony. His Highoefs commanded the Saxon. Auxiliaries which within two Years pair, ferved in Conjunction with the Auf-triinsln Bohemia ind Silefia: Bat was not prefent at the laft Battle near Drefden. Jvbn Adtlpbus was of the Albertine (now the Electoral) Branch of the Houfe of Saxony, whereby his Eftates,,upon his Death without Iffue Male,, devolved to the King-Eloaor, Auguftus III.
