May 30. 2v\S. �Upon repeated jld^fces \j*cetved by the Porte, that � Thamas Kouli Kan is pr�pltring to attack the Ottoman * Empire �>n feveral Sides at' once, a Grand Divan' was-�f called a few Days ago,-in which after reading over the a&A as faft as they arrived, placed the Infantry, Britifh and Auftrian, as alfo four Batallions of Hanoverians, who all marched thro' the Intervals of the Hbrfe from the. Mountain to the Mayn in two Lines, which were fupportedhythe Cavalry of the Right Wing, alfo in two Lines. In making this Difpofirion, which was a very fine one, and which, by Reafcm of the cflow Motions of the Foot, took up a good deal of Time, the Earl of Stair, the Duke d'Arembergt and|Marfhal Neiperg, affifted with great Capacity and Activity. ' The French had paffed over a great Body of Troops during the Night> Their Horfe, the Houfhold at the Head, paffed at Fordsi or fwam over: The Foot, which we faw marching without Baggage along the River, paffed over the Bridges, and nothing could be better laid than this Plan of Marfhal Noailles'sr if he had left the Morafs that he paffed ir? order to attack us, in his Front ; for then the Village of Dettingen and the Mayn fecured his Right, the the Morafs his Front, and the Mountains his Left; but probably his PeWuafion of our Surprize, and that the King, could not in fo little a Time make a Difpofition to oppole him, made him come into Ground, where he was acceffible by all his Front. During the whole Difpofition, which Iafted from Eight to Twelve, the French Batteries polled on the riling Grounds on the other Side of the Mayn, did us a great deal of Harm, flanking us from Left to-Right within 200 Paces. About Twelve, every Thing being ready, and the French advancing, his Majefty ordered us to march to meet them : Lieutenant Generals Clayton and Somroerfeldt, and his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, as Major-General, were at the Head of the Firft Line of Foot: The Earl of Dimmore Lieutenant-Genera], and the Earl of Rothes Major General, at the Head of the Second. General Honeywood, Lieutenant Generals Campbell, Ligonier, and Baron de Courriere, and Lord Albemarle as Major General; were at the Head of the" Firlt Line of Horfe: Lieutenant Generals Cope and Hawley at the Head of the Second. Our Lines halted half Way to the Enemy to give the Soldiers Time to breathe; and having given a general Shout or Huzza, marched on to the Enemy with great A-lacrity. A large Squadron of Horfe that happened to be , at the Head of the French Line of Foot, upon the Left of their Center, having kept that Poft.whilft we were ad-, vancing, provoked Part of our Front Line to fire upon them: This occafioned all the Line to fire toofoon .'.However, this had no ill Confequence, they loaded again in an Inftant, and advanced to the Enemy, who was alfo moving towards us; the Fire in a Moment was general upon all the Front, our Line ftill advancing and gaining Ground I LieuVerfarttGentifa^^ay ri.i1 the1 River,'' white he- apprehenlded-lh^^Fneniyr'might; flank him : The Lieutenant General of the Dayifentri^ gadier Bland's Dragoons, who in that Poft fuffered:�x-tfemely. l"he Fire from aHtheBatteries of the Eaemy, ajid particularly from thofe m our Flanks/.was.prodigious, :uid our'Artilfery anfwer'd Very;lbriffe!y^ though much, hi-:. feriour in Quality andNu*ber,w>re, all.cht to Pieces,, and their Standard taken..
