This Body marched the following Morning, in One Column, by the Villages o f St. Hilaire, Boufiiere and Wambaix, and forming afterwards Into Two, crofted the Scheldt at Creve- loeur and Manieres. During the March a Body o f Cavalry appeared upon the Right Flank towards Cambrai, but they were driven back in great Con- fufion by the Appearance o f foine Cavalry deftine^ to attack them, and a few Shot from the Auftiian Light Artillery. The Troops had been Eleven Flours upon their March when they reached Manieres, and the Heat was extreme it was confequently impoJible to pro­ceed any further, and a Camp was taken upon the adjoining Height*.
