Or, T� ftittih for Injuria done. Some one ot thele ought to be Ingredient in thf b-&innii>g ot � War, elt't it cannot hive a jitif Caul.. No* tnertfore let us examine the French Wir by thelt Ruiei. We may remember when it rirft began, the World was very much at Peace, and bust forcuch beforehand in Power andgrearnefs aboveotr.tr Nutans, that it needed not to fear any ot iu Neighbour*, and conleqnently it had no nrcefiry upon it, nor oueediqn tor (eifitftnee. Again, the Crown of htnee was then So far fron having been robbed by any other Nation, that it hio i�rin thac it made ot many Nation*; nor wis �ny of the Neighbour Nations in other State and Cone r. ion in reipeci of the French Power, then is the Lj'^ under the Hobbf, not daring fo much �s to :tu-. but was ctlad to rouch and lie cioic under ali the Op pre (lions and Rapines, that hid U-en pra.'tittd upon thetn by t^e Prtncb. It wete too tedious h�.\e to recite their Adtions in their Neichbours Countty* for Evidence, being notoi'ioiis ioihe W. rid, and to bt collected anon Oucofour enluing Dilci-urle. Moreover, the French were fo farfom having my C�ute to make War to punifh any for Injuries done, that having befn }n that refped alfo beiorchand with their Neighbour*, moft orhfr Frincn had then �b.mdint Realon.and rr.uchmore �owtocoorlaiaagiinit Injuries ot the higher* Nnure a^tcd upon them, and to punifli them with fuch Revenge* Is are due to the ?ommimEm-�i�and Diiturheis oi Mankind. And v.u.y, we tuay well take it for a kind of ociceconfcflion that they hid no ;uftcaufenor tccafion for beg/nning the pnaent W r, leetng tiutm a Deckrjtm confiftir.g of a vety few Lines, whtch the French> Mmjiers dii put forth in the Mme ot their King before the invading of the OKueiProvtM, there is not the ]e*R mention mtde nJDy.c*ule' Uv? ttat n w" ^r their Kiii'i My, became loriooth the HoUtnJer had (but we w�e not told how) detrtMtdtnw bu Gltry, mi the Giorj 4 kn Anders. Not a Word of any other c�Me, norot tne Glory of GOD, whole Work it � tfuai.y to pour Shatue aad coote�pt in th� end upon jn (ucb Gioiy. There iniio another Point which of old bath bten in Ufe, and that is a Peuutuut'un of tr before the Beginning of it. Colieiium hculium I Cdkfa of HfM.'Js was iollituted in old Rome, without whole Advice a* the Komm St nut never icaiJe Win io basing hii\ referred it to them, to con� hder of the ju.nvis ot theit Uuderrtlcing. if they deuraioed the Juft.^e of it, then one ofthe tame Coliadge v*as km to the Hneray before any � fhat � to lay, The ti\ moft relilioujli dnaminti According to the tjo of th CoUtd^t of HerxUl: And they mJcer� and many other Countryj. Thele things being laid, and known too noto-'iou* to b* denied, I tuppole none can deny. Th-tt the Rite of tins War was againft ill the juft Rules ol Warlike undertaking. And all thu they, or toy Body elte, can have to Jay in exciife of them is. That they are born undrr necefTity Pr giving Trouble to ill the reft of the World, in order to the Prele vation of thetpfelves at Home; for it Wirs wer� not found out for them abroad toentertain andexercile their Young Nobility at the txptnea of their Neighbours. f/��ee aione would be roo lirtle to 1 apply thero. In truth tbe Genius of the Nation is luch, that it cannot endure to live long in the idleness of Peace. They ire ot a Narure lo hot, that there mu/c be AiiDent tor this Hre; and it Come were not given it from abroad, it would torso to itfeif matter at Home. To this Natural propenfion muft be added the Cult am of tnoft pirt of their Provinces, and the pai tjcuiar Diipofitioos of Noble Families, which give to great Advantages to the Elder Brotherl, that they leave nothing almoii to the Younger but their Induilry and Sword: And whereas they ratety brtake tbemleivet to Letters to obtain � Livelyhood, and their Quality fuft'ers them not to apply tiiemieivcs to Mechanick Trades, there is oothiiig left to them but their legitimated Robbery ot War, or common Robbery, to preicrve themlelves from Want and Poverty. From hence it comes to pits, that their Kingdom always findi ittclf rilled with an idle and boyling Yjuh, ready to undertake tny Thing, and who leek Employment* for their Valour at whole coft foever it t>e. The Liberty which they had heretofore to void pernicious humour in DucUtng, is at prefene tiken from them by whollbroe Decrees of their King; fo that did not his Miniders find out a Foreign, vent Tor their Spleens, by which they might evaporate, the Hame would ever be breaking "J lorth within their own Bowels. Moreover, as the greateft Revenues of tbe Crown Of France rile out of the Purle of tbe People, fo becaulc the common Contributions cannot be ex-aited in Times of Peace, without anaifing a great many Mak-conttntr, 'tis always ntcenVy to ked ana fume the Airy Multitude with tbe S�o�k of tome Conquelfs, wherein they alio are apt to Glory, houfch they (poor Creatures) get no aaore by chaining Neighbour N�cions, but to bave more Fellow-slaves, and to have their own Fetters let the baidfi on, and fifteoed the firmer at their Heels. Jo which end tbe Grandees are always coining pretences of Quarrel to continue in Arms, and maintain by Fetce that Roya1 Authority, which hath fo ftrangely overflown the limits of their Fundamental Laws. It is otherwife impofTi-ble to fatisfy til the Princes and Great Men of the Realm, though the Princei are nothing fo numerous now at they were in the Time of Henry rhe third and Fourth : fioce which they have taken it up as a principal Policy, to diminifh the Princis �s faft as they can. That h one Courfe; and another is, always to hold them employed in Foreign Warss tnd to incite them unro Glory, that they �ay be confumed e're long in ruinous undertakings, to the confumption of their own as well as otner Nations. The Platform of which Device was hrtt laid, and In part effected by CsrdinilRubiien, and in a great Mealure completted by .Viym, his SuecelTor in the Grand Miniftry of State. So that you fee how they oblerve the Rules of Juft ice. whether they deal with their own Princes and People, or with Foreigners, be it by the way of War or Peaces making Havock of all Mankind without Remorle, to greaten t few of themlelves, and that their King may belpurr'J to dnve furioufly on> they have given his Fanry a fair .pro(pec~t �f an imaginary Throne of Glury at hi* jour nay's end, on which they promife to place and elevate him above petty Monarcbs, 4s tolc Mturttr and Emperor of the Chriftian Uuivcife.
