We conlider you, Sir, as our Prefent Deliverer, under God, and His Majefty, yoar Royal -Father^ by \vhoi^ aufpicious Government we are the happieft People in the Wrtrld. May Heaven long pre/erye your Royal Highnefs to curb the Yiolence *nd furious LifolcnCe pf'nnreafqnable Men^ .whom Royal Gbodnefs, and nUmbertefs Afts of unexampled Clemency, and.the nobkft' Geherofity of a moft bountiful Monarch are, it appears^ incapable of gaining. And to fcourge France, the Mother of all the Violence j Oppreffions, Infurrecrions, and Rebellions, in Britain^ and moft Countries' in Europe, who are fo unhappy as :to fuffer themfplves to be influenced by their magical Councils.

Sir Patrick Dunbar, who with our.Moderator, has the Honour to prefent to your Royal Highnefs thefe our fincere Sentiments, is- a Perfon known to. us to be well affected to his Majefty *s Perfon and Government. This by Order of the Pre&ytery isr fubferibed this 29th of April, '746, by SIR, Tour Royal' HigbneftUmofi devoted and moft obedient buptbk Servanti ALEX. OUPHANT, Moderatori The prefent moft wicked and unnatural Rebellion having very juftly engroffed the Attention-of the Public, we Imagine fiich of our Readers who have not read the Letter to the moft Noble Tbomas Duke ^Newcaftlei Sec, juft publiihed, may be fomewhat entertained by the folio whig Extract therefrom, as it is on a Subject fo univerfally interefting. THE difafFected Clans of the Highlands having been the Foremoft in. eVery Rebellion fince the Revolution, I fhall treat of them, in the firft, Place ; and next of the Lowland Rebels, From the Pop/Jh Part of the Clans * nothing lefs than what has happened could have been reasonably expected* Such as arebeft acquainted with the Spirit, and avowed Principles of their Religion, where they are feen in their native Colours, and without the Attfu) Dijgui/es ufually put on in Countries where Protfftantifm is uppermoft, know that it teaches them that nn. Faith, no Measures, are farther to be obferved taitb us,^ 'fihan merely to lave Appearances f Their trafficking Priefts, as the bcotijb Laws term them, ftill abound amongft them; for tho4 there be fundry Laws in Force againft tKem, they have hitherto proved [ineffectual : So that it is much more owing to the unwearied Diligence of^the tftablijbed Prejbyte ian Clergy, and .more particularly to their itinerant Preachers and Catechifts, in thofe widely extended Parifhes, fupported by the Royal Annual Bounty of oriethoufand Pounds Sterling, firft graciouflyt bellowed by his late Majefty, and continued by bis prefent Majefty, than to any ofher human Means, that Popery has not interely gained the Afcendant in that wild Country. Thefe People, befides their being bigotted Papifts, are1 generally a barbarous bloody-minded Crew, whofe very Names have ever been a Terror to their more peaceable and loyal Neighbours in the Highlandst and bordering Lowlands, on Account of their Robberies and Murders 1 Infomuch, that the Government, both before and fince the Union, have (as your Grace well knows) been obliged to keep up certain' ihdependant Companies of Soldiers, for preferving the Peace of that Country. As for the ProUflant Rebel Clans, too many of therrt, I doubt, are equally guilty of thofe Diforder* laft menT tioned. And tho' they and their Lowland and EngHJb Non-Cd* tholic Confederates, do not acknowledge;any .Spiritual' Sub^. jeciioa to Out See of Rome yet their, obftinate Attachment to the Caufe of a PopiA Pretender, renders them equally Enemies to our civil tonftitution, and Very near as figniiicant Tools to that See, as if they were actually fubject to it. The accumulated Guilt of the.Rebel Clans, in general,, is therefore become'fo glaring, that it can now be no Sort of Queftion bow to deal with fuch of their Chiefs, Leaders, and moft active Inftruments as have furvived our late glorious Victory : But the Cafe feems not quite fo clear; with refpect to the Remainder of the vulgar Herd of their Followers. Are thefe, my Lord, to be permitted quieily to return to their Homes, after they have done- ail the Mijcbif tit tb. ir Pavjtr f And, after their prefent Chiefs fliall be joftl/ taken out of the Way* to recognize > the next HJf. in courfe, for their Chief ; who, it is ten to one, will be of the fame Stamp with the former Cbitf I For, tho' it be true, Jhat legal Vaffahtge was effentially abolilhed^ on the Suppreffion of^ the preceding Rebellion of thefe People^ Anno 1715 j yet what they will probably call their natural Vajfalage, or the Devotion which* from their Infancy^, they are taught to pay to the Cbitf cr Head of the whole  I call them fo beciwfe I *> not know of tny one Odn �h�t h en* tiieiy Pofijb, tbo* fome of theit Cfeieft, wd owagr of their Vto^t* tie of tb�t Perfuafion.
