Dangeau’s Diary, May 1688

Philippe de Courcillon, Marquis de Dangeau

21st. — The Comte de Solre has lost at Malines an important law-suit, which he had pending against the Prince of Orange and the King, who knows that injustice has been done him, has caused it to be notified to the Baron d’Elval, the Spanish envoy, that it was his wish that the decision might be set aside, otherwise he would allow the Comte de Solre reprisals upon the subjects of Spain.
