Princely generous Endeavours have not been confined to Brit-
taine alone ; but an unwearied tenderness is diffused over all

her Matys Colonyes & Plantations abfoade and more especially
to Us and our Neighbouring Planters ; Witness her Matys
tymely Interposition with the Zarr of Muscovy; for if that
Grant or Project had not been stopped, You might in good
Measure have bid adieu to the tobo Trade in America ; whilst
the divided Interests and Sentiments of the Merchts at home,
in relation to the Setting up and curing the Circasian Tobaccoes,
had speedily crown'd our Ruine.

it be sayd that Maryland was ungratefull to so good &
gracious a Sovereigne, Who do's with so much Wisdome
Goodness & Steady Application, endeavour the Prosperity of
England and all it's Dependencys
