I have directed Copies of the Proclamations issued upon that Occasion to be laid before you.

"Proper Orders have been given for bringing the Authors and Abettors of these Insurrections, and the Perpetrators of such criminal Acts, to speedy Trial, and to such condign Punishment as the Laws of their Country prescribe, and as the Vindication of Public Justice demands.

"Though I trust it is not necessary, yet I think it right, at this Time, to renew to you My solemn Assurances, that I have no other Object but to make the Laws of the Realm, and the Principles of Our excellent Constitution in Church and State, the Rule and Measure of My Conduct; and I shall ever consider it as the first Duty of My Station, and the chief Glory of My Reign, to maintain and preserve the established Religion of My Kingdoms, and, as far as in Me lies, to secure and to perpetuate the Rights and Liberties of My People."
