Which being objected to;

Amendments thereto.

("is of Opinion, that the said Declaration is conformable to those just Sentiments of Indignation and Abhorrence, which were expressed by His Majesty, and the two Houses of Parliament, respecting the atrocious Act committed against the Life of the late most Christian King, and that this House persevering in the same Sentiments, cannot but approve the Measure taken by His Majesty's Ambassador at the Hague, for inducing His Majesty's Allies, the States General of the United Provinces, to concur on their Part, in witholding from the Actors and Accomplices in so execrable a Crime, that Asylum which the Principles of the Law of Nations deny to such Criminals").

Which being objected to;

The Question was put, "Whether these Words shall be there inserted?"

It was resolved in the Negative.
