i 54 A New Voyage Vol. I.
I am inform’d the Post is just going, which
makes me finish my Letter, that I may not mils
the opportunity of sending it to you. , I will add
only one word, touching the ssux and ressux of
the Sea. You must know, that it is more or less
observable, according to the distance from the
bottom, or extrerhity of the Guls. At Venice the
Tide rises four Foot and a half, or thereabouts;
near to Ravenna three, at Pesaro two, and one
at most at Ancona; sd chat at last it decreases to
nothing. • '
I hope tve shall arrive at Loretto to morrow a-
bout Noon, and you. may allure your self I shall
use ail possible means to give you an exaft
account of the Santa Casa. I am,
Ancona, Feb. 24. SIR,

in the Accounts that are given of this Place, and
the Matter of it self is very curious; I intend to
give you an abridgment of all that I saw or heard
on this occasion.
