Message from the King, concerning the Pretender's Declaration:

The Lord Viscount Townshend acquainted the House, "That he had a Message from His Majesty, under His Royal Sign Manual; which His Majesty had commanded him to deliver to this House."

And the same was read, by the Lord Chancellor, as follows:

"GEORGE R.

"His Majesty, having been informed that many scandalous Declarations in Print have been, by several Foreign Posts, transmitted into this Kingdom, in order to be dispersed amongst His good and faithful Subjects, to poison their Minds, and seduce them from their Allegiance; several of those Declarations have, by His Majesty's Order, even since His Majesty received from both Houses of Parliament the last most solemn and acceptable Assurances of their Fidelity, been intercepted; and, amongst them, an Original, in Writing, signed, as His Majesty has good Reason to believe, by the Pretender himself: This, together with One of the printed Copies, His Majesty has ordered to be laid before you, as a Matter not unworthy of your Consideration."

Then his Lordship delivered in the said original Declaration, in Writing, signed by the Pretender himself; as also One of the printed Copies thereof, mentioned in His Majesty's said Message.

And the same being read, by the Clerk, the House came to the following Resolutions; (videlicet,)

The Declaration voted a traiterous Libel, and ordered to be burnt by the Hangman:

"Resolved, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Paper this Day communicated by His Majesty, intituled, "Declaration of James the Third, King of England, Scotland, and Ireland, to all His loving Subjects of the Three Nations, and to all Foreign Princes and States, to serve as a Foundation for a lasting Peace in Europe," and signed "James Rex," is a false, insolent, and traiterous Libel, the highest Indignity to His Most Sacred Majesty King George, our lawful and undoubted Sovereign; full of Arrogance and Presumption, in supposing the Pretender in a Condition to offer Terms to His Majesty; and injurious to the Honour of the British Nation, in imagining that a free Protestant People, happy under the Government of the Best of Princes, can be so infatuated, as, without the utmost Contempt and Indignation, to hear of amy Terms from a Popish bigoted Pretender."

"Resolved, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the printed Copy of the Pretender's Declaration, mentioned in His Majesty's Message, be burnt, by the Hands of the Common Hangman, at The Royal Exchange in London, upon Tuesday next, at One of the Clock; and that the Sheriffs of London do cause the same to be burnt there accordingly."

Ordered, That the said Resolutions be communicated to the House of Commons, at a Conference; and that their Concurrence thereto be desired; and that His Majesty's most Gracious Message under His Royal Sign Manual, together with the Pretender's original Declaration, signed by the Pretender himself, and One of the printed Copies thereof, mentioned in His Majesty's said Message, be also communicated to the House of Commons, at the said Conference.

"Resolved, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Paper this Day communicated by His Majesty, intituled, "Declaration of James the Third, King of England, Scotland, and Ireland, to all His loving Subjects of the Three Nations, and to all Foreign Princes and States, to serve as a Foundation for a lasting Peace in Europe," and signed "James Rex," is a false, insolent, and traiterous Libel, the highest Indignity to His most Sacred Majesty King George, our lawful and undoubted Sovereign; full of Arrogance and Presumption, in supposing the Pretender in a Condition to offer Terms to His Majesty, and injurious to the Honour of the British Nation, in imagining that a free Protestant People, happy under the Government of the Best of Princes, can be so infatuated, as, without the utmost Contempt and Indignation, to hear of any Terms from a Popish bigoted Pretender."

"Resolved, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the printed Copy of the Pretender's Declaration, mentioned in His Majesty's Message, be burnt, by the Hands of the Common Hangman, at The Royal Exchange in London, upon Tuesday next, at One of the Clock; and that the Sheriffs of London do cause the same to be burnt there accordingly."

And the same was, by filling the Blank with ["Lords Spiritual and Temporal and"], agreed to by the House; and is as follows; (videlicet,)

Address concerning the Declaration:

"Most Gracious Sovereign,

"We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and faithful Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons in Parliament assembled, being deeply affected with the Sense of those many Blessings which we have constantly enjoyed, and hope long to enjoy, under Your Majesty's most just and gracious Government; and being thoroughly convinced that our Religious and Civil Rights, as well as the very Being of the British Name and Constitution, do, under God, entirely depend upon the Preservation of Your Majesty's Sacred Person, and of the Protestant Succession as settled by Law in Your Royal Line, are filled with the utmost Astonishment and Indignation at the unexampled Presumption and Arrogance of the Pretender to Your Dominions, in daring to offer such an Indignity to Your Majesty and the British Nation, as to declare to Your Subjects, and all Foreign Princes and States, that he finds himself in a Condition to offer Terms to Your Majesty, and even to capitulate with You for the absolute Surrender of the Religion and Liberties of a free Nation.

"However great the Infatuation of his Advisers may be, we are sensible nothing could have raised his and their Hopes to so extravagant a Degree of Presumption, but repeated Encouragements and Assurances from the Conspirators at Home, founded on the most injurious and gross Misrepresentations of the Inclinations and Affections of Your Majesty's Subjects, and a rash Conclusion, that, because some, from whom it ought least to have been expected, had broke through the solemn Restraint of reiterated Oaths, in order to raise themselves on the Ruins of their Country, therefore the whole Body of the Nation was ripe for the same fatal Defection, and ready to exchange the mild and legal Government of a most indulgent Prince for the boundless Rage of an attainted Fugitive, bred up in the Maxims of Tyranny and Superstition.

"But we, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, resolve, by a steady and constant Adherence to Your Government, to wipe off this Stain and Imputation from the Name of Britons; and to convince the World, that those wicked Designs formed against Your Majesty's Sacred Person and Government, which the Insolence of this Declaration proves to be most real while it affects to treat them as imaginary, are indeed impracticable, against a Prince relying on, and supported by, the Vigour and Duty of a British Parliament, and the Affections of His People.

"And we beg Leave, in most solemn Manner, to assure Your Majesty, that neither the impotent Menace of Foreign Assistance, nor the utmost Efforts of Domestic Traitors, shall ever deter us from standing by Your Majesty with our Lives and Fortunes, and supporting Your Majesty's most just Title to the Crown of these Realms, against the Pretender, and all his open and secret Abettors both at Home and Abroad."

Whole House to attend the King with it:

Ordered, That the whole House do attend His Majesty with the said Address.

Lords to know when His Majesty will be attended.

Ordered, That the Lords with White Staves do wait on His Majesty, humbly to know what Time His Majesty will please to appoint to be attended, with an Address of both Houses of Parliament.

Ordered, That the Commons be acquainted, at a Conference, "That the Lords have agreed to the Amendment made by the Commons to One of their Lordships Resolutions, delivered Yesterday to the Commons at a Conference; and have likewise agreed to the Address to His Majesty, this Day delivered to the Lords by the Commons, at a Conference."

Committee to prepare Heads for a Conference on the Subject:

Ordered, That the Lords who were appointed a Committee, to prepare what was offered at the Conserence Yesterday, do prepare what shall be offered at this Conference:

Their Lordships, or any Five of them; to meet immediately, in the Prince's Lodgings near the House of Peers; and to adjourn as they please.
