Tbishappea'd frequently in Greece and in Rome, where indeed they had a legtl Provifion for that Purpofej whivhfhcws, that th:y perceiv'd the Ne-Ce/Bty of yielding to^hat Government, for cerain Seafons, though they pcovWed for the Abolition of it,, as loon as the Neccility was pver. In other States again, where this kind of l-orm isconftjntly kept up/,, ttfeems to be (ome Dilcredit to Monarchy, becaufe in them the iirll Maaiftrate has only Pomp^nd Precedence, Title and |hew, Drums and Trumpe�i but the Power is in other Hand.

' "the Bur as au Beginnings are weak, and as nothing the w* ever weaker th n that of rhK Republkk when it wasrirft rounded; fo, ror iheir own Security and Prcfervation. they found it abfoiutely ne�effary to confide a great Share of Power in the Prince of Orange, to whof: Wildom, Valour, and Integrity tuey owed their Freedom. He mrghr, if he hud p.eas'd, have taken tohimfelf the Sovereignty with what Title he had thought Jit v'but he declin*d k for many Realooi, and exercifed thit Authority which wasgiven him by the Voice of the People, and by which their Freedom wis preierv'd, under 'he known Title of Stadtholder, which Signuirs Governor, or the Supreme Civil MaRillrate for the T me being j I lay, for the Time being, becaufe the Siadtholdeis were o.ijnUly Deputks or Lieutenant Governors to the Counts or Hereditary of thele Countries, before, they became annexed to the Crown of Spain.
