Gentlemen of the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly
The Decease of our late most Gracious Sovereigne Lord King
George affords me the melancholy occasion to Condole with you
the loss of the greatest and best of Kings to whose Vigilent and
tender Care of his People Great Brittain owes the Preservation of
its happy Constitution both in Church and State with all the other
Blessings of Trade and Commerce Peace and Tranquillity both at
home and abroad as much to the envy of all neighbouring Nations
as to the Glory of our own; Had these Inestimable blessings been
only Transitory with our late Sovereigns Life Great Britain must
have remained Inconsolable; But as they are inherent, to a Succes-
sion in the Hannover Line they yet remain permanent to us, by
the Immediate Accession of his Present Majesty to the Throne.
A Prince whom Great Brittain hath not only Recognized as the
Lawful Successor to his Royall Fathers Throne but also as the
True Inheritor of those numerous Royall and Glorious Vertues
wherewith his Great Father did Adorn his Crown, His Majestys
most Gracious Speech to both houses of Parliament with the Duti-
full Addresses of the Lords and Commons in Return, best bespeak
our nations present happiness and the pleasing View of its Con-
tinuacon by A Constant future Succession in his Majesty's Royal
house and family such a prospect as this must be Grateful to every
one that thinks and wishes as a true Brittain should. Wherefore
I doe heartily Congratulate you all as such on this Just and Impor-
tant Occasion.
I have Endeavoured to Express our Joy full and Dutiful Sence
