The Committee eftablifh'd to regulate the Affair relating to the Succefiion to the Crown of Sweden, fent a Depu- ___ tation from their Body to the King, return him their humble Thanks for the gracious Menage his M j<-ity fent his faithful Subjects, in which he declar'd his firm Refolution to protect them in their Privileges fo long as he lives, and not to burthen the States of the Kingdom in any refpedt on account of their Choice of a Succeffor to the Throne. The next Day the King laid a Memorial before the Diet, purporting, that if, contrary to all Expectation, an honourable Peace cannot be concluded with Ruffia, and that if the Profperity and Safety of the Swediih Nation made it neceffary to continue the War, his Majefty repeats theJOffers he-has before made, to command the Army in Perfon, or to prefide and affift in Council, in srder to appoint an able General, in cafe the prefent Situation of Affairs do not permit his Majefty to take the Field in Perfon.
