Thanks be to God for it, at my At-' rival I found General Neurs, with above 1200 Horfe of ' the five Regiments that were in that Battle. It was not * 'till Yefterday Morning between Six and Seven o"Clock, ' that the Attack began. The Enemy fell upon our Troops ' in Flank and Rear. I am (till to give your Imperial * Majefty a Detail of what the Officers report, as I cxpecl ' a particular Account of the Lofs fultained by the Cavalry, * which I already guefs may-be 1000 Men ; I cannot yet * learn any Thing concerning the Infantry.

' The 16th Inftanu'n the Morning the Emperor, accom-' panied by the Count de Thoring, Prime-Minifler, the * VeimarffiaTSec^orff,' andt5MeraTFieyffig; fet out ' for the Cattle of Wolingzach, fituateon this fide of the ' Danube, within four Leagues of Ingoliladt, where a grand * Council of War was held the fame Evening, in order to ''concept Meafures-for putting a flop to the Progrefs of the * Auftrian Arms, and oblige them to repafs the Inn.

We are � affured, that the two Armies are to join near Lmdfhut, ' and that the immediate Relief of Braunau is one of the ' Thingsagreed upon in the new Plan of Operations.' According to Letters from Stadt am-hoff a large Detach-' ment of Auftrians, under the Command of General Hohe-'riembs have invefted Braunau, and begun to throw. Bombs and-red-hot Bullets into it; but as the Garrifon is numerous, and the Place pretty well fortified, . they hope it will hold out 'till the Arrival of jibe Succours, intended for its Relief. They write from Ratiffaon, that the Auftrian HufTars make Incuriions as far as the Iffer, which River fome of their Parties have even pafTed, and aftually raife heavy Contributions in Bavaria.
