Abstract:
Stadholder still in Gelderland, guided by bad advisors. Two big issues of the conflict for some time in Holland -- the command of not only the troops as captain general, but for all the cities and provinces as well, in the guise of military Governor General. A plot to massacre Gyselaar and his deputies was exposed and failed. Friday 17th an extraordinary assembly resolved to confer unlimited control of The Hague on the Consul Deputy until the Estates-General should have decided the question by a final statute. Details of the struggle between the Council and the bourgeoisie in Utrecht. Finally, France wants to "conserve the fruits" of its alliance with the Republic and takes measures to guarantee its sovereign rights as stated in the treaty of alliance. Will soon put the republicans here more at their ease and will bring about great events. According to friends, Dumas is not well enough accredited by Congress before L.H.P. to formally reclaim the right of the people. The French ambassador dispatched a courier yesterday to the French court to learn the best way to protect Dumas. In French.
