Saxe-Jarlsberg withdraws ....

After the Batlle of Hofheim, the Saxe-Jarlsberg forces rallied and re-grouped at Sondheim. Count Pottensdorf on seeing the very poor state of the infantry and artillery decided to withdraw and return home.

They crossed the border without further incident, the Wittenberg dragoons had continued to shadow them to the border but had made no move faced with the superior number of Saxe-Jarlsberg cavalry.

After another days march the army divided,  the Comte de Chazelles and his Noverre Freikorps plus the Jagers would proceed to nearby Crestadt where they would monitor the northern border area; the rest of the army proceeded to the capital.
