' As we have been informed, that the Court of France ' has difpatched Orders into Flanders and Alface, for de-' taching thence a large Number of Troops in order to re-' inforce thofe that are retired into Provence, we have alfo ' canfed the Troops, lately arrived out of Germany in ' Lombardy, to advance on that Side, with a View of 1 forming there an Army of about 80,000 Men. It is ' propofed to execute the Project of invading France by ' different Ways at the feme lime, that the Forces of the ' Enemy may be the more effectually divided. ' The King of Sardiaia projected this Expedition as ' won as the Auftrians were Matters of Genoa ; but a De-' 'Jy was immediately made to pufh home the firft Advan-' kf^gained over the Republick, and the principal At-' teatian has been to levy the Contribution!, and get Pof-' ftffion of the ftrong Places along the Coaft, as well as of ' Gavi; without reflecting fo rtiuch as was neceflary, up ' OHhe Common IntereftsV the Allie�,fchoconfequently ' complained to the Court of Vienna and London. In ' ^Stt\, the Delay occafioned by thefe Circumftances, is * the Caufe that nothing has been yet done by Way of 1 Diverfion upon - the Dominions of France. This it was ' that enabled the French to take Namur, and afterwards ' to bring on a Battle which proved difadvantageous to the ' Allies: N-otio mention that the Seafon is fa far advane'd, that it will not be practicable to keep the Field much longer.
