"Most Gracious Sovereign,

"We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and faithful Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons of Great Britain in Parliament assembled, think it our indispensable Duty, to express the highest Resentment at the Affront and Indignity offered to Your Most Sacred Majesty, by the Memorial delivered by Monsieur De Palm, the Emperor's Resident; and at his Insolence, in printing and dispersing the same throughout the Kingdom.

"This audacious Manner of appealing to the People, against Your Majesty, under the Pretext of applying to You for Redress and Reparation of supposed Injuries, and turning a Memorial presented to Your Majesty into a seditious Libel, is a Proceeding that creates in us the utmost Abhorrence and Detestation.

"The endeavouring to instill into the Minds of any of Your faithful Subjects the least Distrust or Diffidence in Your Majesty's most Sacred Royal Word, or to make a Distinction between Your Majesty and Your People, is an Attempt as vain as presumptuous; for, by Your Goodness, the Interest of Your Majesty and Your People is but One; and as inseparable, as their Duty and Affection, and Confidence in Your Majesty, are most justly and deservedly unalterable: And if Time has not effaced the Memory of the glorious Exploits and important Succours (confessed to have been received from Great Britain); Gratitude, Affection, and Esteem for this Nation, will be best manifested, by doing Honour to the King, whom the People honour; and Justice to the People, whose Rights and Privileges the Best of Kings is now defending, against the Invasions and Encroachments made upon them.

"We return Your Majesty our sincerest Thanks, for Your Care and Vigilance, in discovering the secret and pernicious Designs of Your and our Enemies; and for Your Goodness, in communicating to Your Parliament the Dangers that threatened this Kingdom.

"And we beg Leave to assure Your Majesty, that no Amusements, by artful or evasive Denials, shall lead us into a false Security, or divert us from exerting ourselves, in Vindication of Your Majesty's Honour, and in defending and supporting Your Majesty, against all Your open and secret Enemies, both at Home and Abroad.

"And if any among Your own Subjects have been so wicked as to countenance, encourage, or abet, the Disturbers of the public Tranquility, in this extravagant Insult upon Your Majesty; or flattered them with Hopes, that an obstinate Perseverance in their destructive Measures could stagger the Firmness of the British Nation; we are resolved effectually to defeat all such groundless Expectations; and to convince the World, that the Intrigues of a few cannot in any Degree abate or slacken that Vigour and Resolution with which a true Love and Concern for our Country, a just Sense of its Interests, and an unshaken Loyalty to Your Majesty, have inspired us."

Then it was agreed, that the Commons be acquainted, at a Conference, "That the Lords have agreed to the said Address, with filling up the Blank with ["Lords Spiritual and Temporal and"]."

Message to H. C. for a Conference about it.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Mr. Holford and Mr. Yard:

To desire a Conference, To-morrow, at One a Clock, in the Painted Chamber, upon the Subject-matter of the last Conference.

Cahill to enter into a Recognizance for Donnellan & al.

The House being moved, "That Christopher Cahill Gentleman may be permitted to enter into a Recognizance for William Donnellan and Mary his Wife, John Cahill and Ellinor his Wife, on account of their Appeal depending in this House, to which Sir Sir William Taylor Baronet is Respondent; the Appellants residing in Ireland:"
