11th instant; and in three weeks time, after a mighty contest, be
succeeded by a cardinal of the imperial faction, but native of Tuscany,
who is now about sixty-one years old.
The French army acts now wholly on the defensive, strongly fortify'd in
their trenches; and the young French
King sends
overtures for a treaty of peace by the Duke of Mantua; which, because
it is a matter of state
that concerns us here at home, I shall speak no farther of it. I shall

add but one prediction more, and that in mystical terms, which shall be
included in a verse out of Virgil, Alter erit jam Tethys, & altera quae

opinion, too long been suffer'd to abuse the world: But an honest
physician ought
not to be despis'd, because there are such things as mountebanks. I
