Daily Courant (Newspaper) - October 10, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant. Saturday, O&ober rd, 1730. it Having been anticipated in our Defign of infer t-ing the LETTER of the General Aflembly � of the Clergy of Fance to the King, roe ~JhaH fupply the Scarcity of Foreign News wiih the Speech of the Bilhop of Niftnes to his rhoft Chriftian Majefty, when that Affem* bly foel^ Leave of the Court at Vcriaiiles the 27th if September, N. S. Winch Speech tame by the Holland Mail that arrived Ti-fterday. $ J HE, a r~H ^ HE fame Duty which fumrtvons " us to the Foot of your Ma-" jefty's Throne at the Com* " mencemenc of our Alftm-blies, brings usco ic again -\hen they break up, and condudls us this Day with tredi Obligations. Your, Goodnels in giving our Homage a gracious Reception j rhe Pro-region you vouchlafe to our Mimttry and " our Bftates; theOcca/ions we have to implore ? tc in the Courfe of oUr Seiltons j thofe Rays of your Wifdom and Vemie which glare in our Eyes ; the Meafures we fee you take for the Peace and Prosperity of your People : All tbefe, Sire, are fo many Cir-cumftances, which redouble, if it be pof-fible, jeur Love and Confidence, and daily prefent either Objects of yourearneft Sup-*' plications, or Motives to ~o�r Gratitude. But nothing. does fo fenfibly affect us at this Day; as the new Bietfiogs which it has pleafed God to fhower down upon your Majefty, in Recompence for the Ver-" tuesofyour Auguft Confort, by a happy " Fruitfuinefs, which confirms more and *l more the Tranquillity of Europe, and prepares in your Blood immortal Supports for the Church, and perhaps Sovereigns for the XJniverfe. " This Sire is the Subject of our moft affectionate and. moft hearty Acclamations: They were always devoted to your Glory and Profperity; and this has been hitherto our Capital Imereft. Attentive, from the very Beginning of your Reign, to your Majefty's Progrefs in the Science of Kings, we have inceffantly and.carefully obfery'd " the Wifdom which it has pleafed the Al-' mighty with Rapidity, tho' by Degrees, to infpire into your Royal Perfon. Every one of us, call'd in our Turn, at the Times appointed, to be near you for the Church's Intereft, and your Majefty VSe'rvice, collected together all the Parages that prefaced the Happinefs of France, 'and the Advancement of Religion j and our greedy " Ears eagerly catch'd from the Mouths of "our Brethren, the Recital of what anfwet*d �' 4ip fucceflively to our Vows. Happily de-" ftin'd for the fame Functions in our Tiifn, at a Time when your Majefty is' arrived at'the Fulnefs of the perfect Man, yet not " much for your Vigour of Age, as for " vyout:Ripenefs'of Judgment, we have found "fomething more than bare Conjectures to " Scarry into our feveral Countries; we fee "all xhe, Prefages verjfy'd, and can foftn *\ btkers that are yet more infallible. 4* tt it It tt it �tl tl crednefs of their Functions are not always free from rb� Defers almoft infeparab'e to Human Kind. But to offer to charge all the Anointed of the Lord with perverfe Intent^ ons, and to fuppofe that Paflion and Caprice are the Motives to all their Actions, and the Principle of all their Views, is to have � ftrange Noiion of the Religion we reach* and a wrong Idea of the Faith, which we cannot reafonably fuppofe our Divine Ma-fter would entruft to none but Prevaricators. If there fhould be any among u.% who have exceeded in the Motions of their Zeal, the Concern of Unanimity ;s great and prefling enough co engage the Epifco-pate to redrefs their Faults, with a Prudence which equally oppofes the' Undertakings of the Enemies to Religion, and curbs the Jndifcretions of its Defenders.
