On the 30th at five o'Clock in the Morning, the Enemy fent out a Patrol of fome Huffars, who having from the rifing Grounds difcovered the Auftrian Army in Order of Battle, gave the Alarm, and thereupon the Pruflians immediately put themfelves under Arms. The Eminencies on our Right having been occupied by the Corps under Count Konigfegg, and the Companies of Grenadiers under General Hagenbach, and provided with Artillery, the Enemy formed in the beft Order in the World under the Fire of the Cannon, which began to play at Seven o'clock. About eight, Count Koniglegg and Hagenbach attacked the Right Wing of the Pruffians with fo much Vigour, that they were feveral Times obliged to give Ground, which muft have had thedefired, if the Cavalry of the Left Wing, under the Command of Prince Lobkowitz, had behaved fo well as did the Infantry ; but being continually raked by the terrible Fire which the Enemy made, as well from their Cannon on the Le/t, as from their Small-Arms, they gave Ground, as did the 15 Squadrons under Count Konigfegg, and notwith (landing the Endeavours On Friday laft when the Train'd Bands were exercifing in the Artillery Ground, a moft wicked and cruel Thing was intended, viz.
