With regard to the armistice in question, I have his excellency's command to acquaint you, that although, he must decline the conclusion of a formal armistice, yet he engages his word of honour, that he will not recommence hostile operations against the Swedish army, before the expiration of fourteen days, after the Swedish array shall have taken up the position stipulated in the above convention, in hopes that no operations will be commenced on your part within the said time.
