Tnefe his hopes were confirmed when your Cordihips ac-' knowledging the Kis.it of the King otSp-ii", wrote to that 1'iince to ' congotuhec hi; accen'ion to the Crown.

There was no need of bringing ' (0 great a number of Troops into the field, to buy at a dear rate Fo-' reign Alliances, to drown their Provinces, and to make all the cx-' rr.!ordin.try preparations of thegreatcft Wars.  Your LordAips rhem- * ielves had deiired ConfeR'nces as a means to fecure the Peace, and it ' was in theh Po\ver to render the lime ufcful.

But inllead of (crioufly, endeavour (ing the Ame, your Lord/hips nave put off the conclulion, in inl.hing t on tne aidtiiii-on of the Envoy cf the Rir.g cfEngland into the Con-_ fcTcnces with the Ainbaliador er,dcr\.ritteii and your Deputies.
