This gb.-ij Jilpolicion of the Country people is very advantageous to Prince Eugene, foi as foon as the French mike any morjon.we have immediately advicethereorf and ieveral of theijr parties have fallen into our hands by theirmeans.OurOfflcers haveVery much incouraged'em by t;is aflurances that they have given them.that Prince �ugcae will march in few days into the Milantze, and that we expe�t.a.great quantity of Arms to be given to then, that they �may contribute to the defence of their own Country, againfr the infblence ofjthe French. Our, parties have had but inconfiderable re-en-countsrs fince cjir Iaft Letters, forcho the French are encamped, within a few miles of us, thtirmen are fo difencour.rged, By reafon of the many advantages' we have got over them, that they dare not ftir out of their Camp. Our Spies having brought advice, that they talk in the French Army of pafilng the Oglio overt 10 Bri.iges in-order to attack us, a party wasfentout to obisr^e rheir motions, but they have reported that they continue very quiet onjthe other fide of the River, 2nd chat they Jmake no preparations to Jay Bridges on the fame. The Inhabitants of the Mibneze on this fide the Adda, make .prefling inftarices for our marching thither, before they are compelled 'to obey the orders given them by Prince Vaudemont to carry their Fob-age* and all other Prbviiions on rfiebtHer fide of the Adda, to deprive the Germans from fubfiftfng in thofe parti.

We have.' the free pafiage' of the Oglio, and this Country is fo'.full of CanalsJJrodts! and Rivers, that we may avoid an Engagement 25 long as we pleafe. Rome, Auguft '13.
