The more I �m attentive to wbac panes here, the more I am farprited to find feme People in Holland flattering themfelves with tho Affiftanca of this Court,.either by interpofing its good Oflr res with France, or I y furnjfbing the Dutch with Succours. One would imagine that People in tfiat Country, who dierilh fuch-1 ike Ideas, were either wry ill informed of the Sentiments qf she King of EruJlia, or were firangely prejudiced fa his Pal vour> . . ~i which Notions art founded upon tbt frivolous Motives of Refemblante Of Religion, tie Oflfer of Guaranty of StJefia, and beeaufe the. King of Pruflia has great Inter�4 in the Preferva-rion of Gueldcrfchd.'- >* The Motive of Religi. ooi particularly of what is profefs'd out of the Empire, bears very little Swat with his Pruflian Mayfly.
