DescriptionThey have been traversing the country, and in some places the inhabitants have refused to admit them to their towns. They thought that they were 'to have had a dust' with the Dutch garrison at Coeverden. At Zwoll 'one of the most disaffected [sic] towns in Holland' the citizens refused their troops admittance, but eventually conceded that if they were forced to take troops they would have 'none but the Scotch Highlanders'.
