.Landing by our Boats, while& we marched
towards Glafcow. On Thurfday morning
laf Col.Overto with, abou fourteen hun-
dred Foot, .and fome Horfe nd Dragoons,
landed at the North-Firry in Fife: We with
theArmy lyingneer to the Enemy (a fmall
River parted us and them) and we having
Confucations to attempt the Enemy with-
in his Fortifications; but the Lord was not
pleaded to give way to that Counfel, purpo-
fing a better way for us.
The Major General marched on Thurf-
day night ith two Regiments of Horfe,
and two'Regiments of Foot, for better fe-
curing tlhe Place, and to attempt upon the
Enemy as opportunity fiould freve : He
getting over-and finding a confiderableBody
of the Enemy there (who would probably
have beaten our men from the place, if he
had not come) drew out and foughtthem,
He being two Regiments of Horfe, and
b;bout Four hundred of Horfe and Dra-
goons more, and three Regiments of Foot;
the Enemyjfive Regiments of Foot, and
about four or five Regiments of Horfe they.

cameto a clofe Charge, and in the end total-
ly Routed the Enemy, Have taken about
Forty ,or fiffy~ Colburs killed neer Two
thb~fand, fonre fay more; have taken Sir
John !ro'n (their Major General, who com-
manded in chief) and other Colonels and
considerable Officers killed and taken, and
about Five or Six hundred Prifoners. The
Enemy is removed from their Ground with
their whole Army, but whether we cer--
tainl know not.
This is an unspeakable Mercy,'Itruft
the Lord will follow' it until he hath per-
feadd Peace andTrth : We can tr.ly fay,
we were gone as far as we could in our
Cou nil and A&6cn, and we did fay one to
another, We kww not what to do, Wheiefore
it is Se.ied upon our Heartt, That this as all
the reft, is frImi the Lords goodnefs, and
not from man. I .hope it becometh me to
pray, That we may walk humbly-and felf-
denyingly before the Lord, and believingly
alfo, That you whom we ferve (as the-
Authority over us, may do the Work com-
mitted to you, with Uprightnmes and Faith-
-'funefs, aad throughly as to the Lord, That
you may not suffer any thing to remain, that
offends the ecyec of his Jeloufic, That
common wealth may more and more be
fought, and JuAice done impartially. For
the Eyes of the Lord run too and fro, and
as he finds out his Enemies here, to be
avenged on them; fo will he not fpare
them for whom he doch good if by his
loving kindnefs they become not good. I
hall take the humble boldndfs to represent
this Engagement of Davids in the 119.
