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

The moftChriftian * King alio forgetting the long iilence of;your Lordlhipson the accellion * of the Cathohek King, all tnings leemed to turn to the ftrcngchening ' of the Peace, w'ru n the I'rnpniils of your Lordlliips and thoie of the * Knvoy of the King of Oigland gave region to believe, that War rather ' than Peace lliould be the ertect of the ftri:t Union, which appeared ' Ktwtcn that 1'rince and. vour Lordllii; s, by the conformity of tho/e ' i'ropoials.

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.
