"Her Majesty conceives this Matter to be of such great Consequence, as indispensably obliges Her to acquaint you with the present State of it, that She may have your Advice upon it; not doubting but it will be such as will most tend to the Honour and Advantage of Her Majesty and Her Allies.

"St. James's, Jan'ry 4th, 170 2/3;."
