In their Passage they met with so violent a Storm, that twelve Ships ran a-ground, and the Czar apprehending the same Misfortune would happen to the Frigat he was in, Landed with great Difficulty and Danger in a small Boat. But the Storm being over, his Majesty went on board again the next Day, and on the 17th he arrived at Elsingfos, where he found his Troops in a very good Condition. It is said they amount to Eighteen thousand Foot and Five thousand Horse and Dragoons, all of which were to march towards Abo on the 26th of August.
