“His majesty has given directions for laying before the house of Peers, with as little delay as possible, copies of such papers as will afford the fullest information to his parliament at this important conJuncture. “ It is a consolation to his majesty to reflect, that no endeavours ave been wanting on his part to reserve to his subjects the blessings of peace; but under the circumstances which have occurred to disappoint his just expectations, his majesty relies with confidence on the zeal and public spirit of his faithful commons, and on the exertions of his brave and loyal subjects, to support him in his determination to employ the power and resources of the nation, in opposing the spirit of ambition and encroachment which at present actuates the councils of France, in upholding the dignity of his crown, and in asserting and maintaining the rights and interests of his people.”

Proclam Arion By his Majesty, as Elector of Ha


GEORGE R. Whatever the event of the differences now existing between our crown and the French government may be, we shall, in our capacity as elector and member of the German empire, observe the strictest neutrality; and might therefore justly and confidently expect, that whatever termination the present negotiation may have, our German states and faithful subjects will not be affected by any consequences

which may ensue.

Considering, however, the obvi

sovereign, their attachment to their native country, their family connexions, and everything dear to them, already bind them. And we do it with the more confidence, as our dearly beloved son, the duke of Cambridge, actuated by the tender affection he bears our faithful German states and subjects, is willing to share every danger that may befal them, and personally to assist in every thing that may promote their safety and security. To be prepared for every event that may happen, it is for the present absolutely necessary to know immediately the exact number of our German subjects, who, if necessity calls, can take up arms for the defence of their country. It is to effect this, that we command all the magistrates of our German states, to lose no time in giving in


complete lists of such of our German subjects as are fit for military service, excepting those only who serve us and their country in other capacities ; and to make them solemnly promise to come forth when called upon, and give all the assistance in their power for the defence of their country, whenever, and for as long as may be thought necessary. The known loyalty and patriotism of our beloved subjects, leave us no room to suppose, that any one of them will be so lost, as to transgress so solemn an obligation, or to withdraw himself by a cowardly and treacherous flight from giving his assistance to the defence of his country. Should, however, against our better expectations, such be found, who, in time of danger, would desert their country and refuse their aid, such wretches shall, , the case being lawfully proved, without hope of pardon, be deprived of all they may possess in our German dominions, and be cut off from all inheritance therein. But we have a better opinion of all our German subjects, and are firmly persuaded, that, when necessity calls, they will unanimously and zealously assist, to the utmost in their power, in the defence and for the salvation of their native country. Hanover, May 16, 1803.

His Majesty's Speech to both Houses of Parliament, August 12, 1803.

My Lords and Gentlemen,

I am at length enabled, by the state of public business, to release you from your long and laborious attendance in parliament. In closing the session, I have the utmost satisfaction in expressing the strong sense which I entertain

of that zealous and unwearied regard for the welfare and honour of your country, which has distinguished all your proceedings. During the continuance of peace, your conduct manifested the just view which you had taken of our actual situation, and of the dangers against which you were peculiarly called upon to provide; and since the recurrence of hostilities, you have displayed an energy and promptitude which have never been surpassed, in the means which you have supplied for the defence of the country, and for the vigorous prosecution of the war. Your proceedings, in consequence *the late treasonable and atrocious occurrences in Ireland, will, I trust, have the effect of preventing any further interruption of its internal tranquillity: and of convincing my loyal subjects, in that part of the united kingdom, that they may confidently rely on that protection to which they are so justly entitled. In the midst of the deliberations, which were occasioned by the immediate exigency of the times, you

have not been unmindful of other
