The opinions of the Members, however, are divided in that refpeft. Some are for preferving the ancient form of election, which others regard as too tflrbulent, and prefer an hereditary (licceflioni whilft others propofe to call to the Throne a certain family, but on condition that that family mall not enjoy it hereditarily, but in a direft male line to the third defcendant in-clulively, at whofe death a Die; Extraordinary fhall affemble to pktce on the Throne a new family, or confirm the former in the continuation of t'le Royal dignity; but in this latter form wfe I find all the inconveniencies of an eledion; for if 'they render ihem more rare, they render them more active and dangerous. However, we are very anxious to fee what mode the Diet will adopt in this mat er, which muft be intereiling to all the neighbouring Powers.
