"We therefore make it our humble Request to Your Majesty, That You would be pleased to order the Duke of Marlborough's immediate Departure for Holland; where his Presence will be equally necessary, to assist at the Negotiations of Peace, and to hasten the Preparations for an early Campaign; which will most effectually disappoint the Artisices of our Enemies, and procure a safe and honourable Peace for Your Majesty and Your Allies."
