"Most Gracious Sovereign,

"We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons of Great Britain in Parliament assembled, have, to our great Concern, been informed of a most barbarous and villainous Attempt, made upon the Person of Robert Harley Esquire, Chancellor of Your Majesty's Exchequer, by the Marquis de Guiscard, a French Papist, at the Time when he was under Examination, for Treasonable Practices, before a Committee of Your Majesty's Council.

"We cannot but be most deeply affected, to find such an Instance of inveterate Malice, against one employed in Your Majesty's Council, and so near Your Royal Person; and we have Reason to believe, that his Fidelity to Your Majesty, and Zeal for Your Service, have drawn upon him the Hatred of all the Abettors of Popery and Faction.

"We think it our Duty, upon this Occasion, to assure Your Majesty, that we will effectually stand by and defend Your Majesty, and those who have the Honour to be employed in Your Service, against all public and secret Attempts of Your Enemies. And we most humbly beseech Your Majesty, that You will be pleased to take all possible Care of Your Sacred Person, on whose Life the Welfare and Happiness of Your People, as well as the Liberties of Europe, entirely depend.

"And we do in all Humility represent to Your Majesty, that one effectual Means, conducing to the Safety of Your Majesty's Royal Person, will be, to give such Directions as in Your great Wisdom shall seem most proper, for causing Papists to be removed from the Cities of London and Westminster."

A Message was sent to the House of Commons by Mr. Rogers and Mr. Orlebar:

To desire a present Conference, in the Painted Chamber, upon the Subject-matter of the last Conference.
