Polish-Saxon BO at Riga in Livland, 4. August 1700

Marburg archive’s collection has a very interesting Polish-Saxon BO dated 4 August 1700. (http://www.digam.net/?dok=5753). It doesn’t meet with data from Schuster & Franke (Schuster O., Francke F.U. Geschichte der Sächsischen Armee. Leipzig, 1885, Teil 1). My main concerns are about Guard mounted units & converged grenadiers.
