Wednesday, the 23rd September.Last night we had some whispering as if the town would parley, which this morning did confirm, for lieutenant-general Scravemoer and major-general Ruvigny were desired to meet major-general Sarsfield and [gap: blank in MS] at the river side. They owned a mutiny in the town by the resentment of the garrison for the French general shutting the gates, and letting so many of them to be cut off, and were for flinging all the French over the walls. Discoursing of several matters, nothing was concluded on. They desired that the general would give them four blank passports to send to Dominick Sheldon at their horse-camp at Castle Clare, for that, without him and others there, they could not talk of any accommodation. The passes are granted, and a cessation of arms is to be for three days or longer, as is agreed to. Six eighteen-pounders were ordered to be landed on the other side, to be sent with the general to Castle Clare or Six-mile-bridge, as was at first designed, but this is counter-ordered, this last fortunate action promising more than that designed enterprise. Last night a lodgment was made just at the bridge, so that now the town is entirely blocked up.
