    Seven Years War 1760 (July 7): Entire letter from Cologne, to Montebourg and endorsed 'par Paris et Caen, bas le Normandie', struck with fine (for this) strike of 'ARM. DU B. RHIN' handstamp in black and rated '20' sols to pay in manuscript. Interesting contents regarding Troop movements and St. Germain's move, with the Cavalry and Artillery, towards Menden and Arensburg and Corbach - a prescient move as the Battle of Corbach was fought just three days after this letter was written: a victory for the French forces over the Hanoverians and British troops. A scarce entire.
