"DISSENTIENT:

Protest thereupon:

"1st.-Because it was proved in the Debate that the Methuen Treaty had been renewed by and was incorporated into the Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed at Rio de Janeiro on the Nineteenth of February One thousand eight hundred and ten, and that its Execution was to be regulated by the Stipulations of that Treaty.

"2nd.-Because, without questioning the Right of the Legislature to equalize the Duties on Wine, had the Stipulation been previously complied with which is contained in the Thirty-third Article of the aforesaid Treaty, and which requires that due Notice should be given by the contracting Parties of the Intention of either to suspend the Operation of any Article of the Treaty, we are nevertheless of Opinion, that the long and intimate Connection between the Crowns of England and Portugal, the great Sacrifices made and Services mutually rendered, might reasonably have prevented so important a Change from being carried into Effect, except as the result of an amicable Negociation.

"3rd.-Because the Manner in which this Measure has been proposed by His Majesty's Ministers, and the Time at which it is brought forward, without due Notice given to the Government of Portugal, and at a Moment of great Political Excitement in that Country, must be considered as a Violation of the National Honour, and as a Proceeding hostile to the Interests of a Power which is united to us by so many Bonds of Alliance and Friendship.

"4th.-Because, although we doubt the Extent of the Financial Advantages which have been anticipated from the proposed Measure, we are of Opinion that a still greater Amount of Revenue to be derived from it would be dearly purchased at the Expence of Good Faith, and by the Neglect of our oldest and most faithful Ally.
