herein, as becomes the Allegiance and Fidelity of true and
loyall Subjects. Fully resolved never to be withdrawne from
your Majesties Service, by any artifice or attempts whatsoever
of your Majestys Enemies.
Wee will chearfully submitt to your Majesties pleasure
(which we doe with all humility and desire expect) in an
answer to our petitions made by our Representatives in a late
Convention of the whole Province that you would be pleased
to order such a Settlement amongst us by a Protestant Gov-
ernmt whereby our Religion and Properties may be secured
Then we shall be able publickly (which without such an
Establishment, wee must in some measure continue deprived
of) to prayse and magnifie in the great congregation, that
God that hath blest us with your Majesties Protection, wee can
only in the mean time, every one in particular, adore the
Divine goodness for the great deliverance by your sacred per-
sons to all your Protestant Subjects and humbly pray contin-
uance of the same to yourselves and Royall Progenie, that
there never be wanting of your Illustrious Race one to succeed
in your Royall vertues and dignity when yourselves shall be
Translated into an Immortal Inheritance of a never fadeing
Crown of Glory.

your glorious and generous Endeavours, and happy success
