but however He thinks these Proposals deserve a ferious Confideration. And because there is no mention made of England, the King, my Master, has made it already his Businefs to encline the most Christian King not to irsilt upon that which might put a stop to the General Peace. In the mean time the King, my Master, thinks it neceffary, that in order to advance a Work fo Profitable and Beneficial to all Europe, a Negotiation be set on Foot; And his Majesty is the more connfirm'd in this Opinion, by reason the Winter will foon be over, and that 'cís to be fear’d, left by delaying till the next Cam paign, an opportunity be given to France either of enlarging her Conquests, or by a powerful Irruption into Germany, and the Superiority of her Forces to divide the Confederacy ; which would give a just pretence to that Crown of recalling the Offers The has already made, and render a Peace very difficult, if not altogether impollible. The King, my Master, does not only offer to become Guarantee with all the Princes and Potentates that will concur witli him, but likewise to unite himself in particular with Your Majesty by a most strict and indissoluble Alliance.

Upon the whole Matter the King, my Master, is perswaded, that no body has more Reason to contribute to this Peace than Your Majesty, since it will confirm to You the Glory and Advantages You have gain d during the War; and will, besides, make Europe to be cternally beholden to Your Majefty for the Peace she groans after. If Your Majesty thinks that there is any thing defective, in relation to the security of the Peace, or that wants to be either alter'd or explain'd, the King, my Master, engages to procure to Your Najcity all the Saa tisfaction imaginable; and if you are pleas'd to confide in his Mediation, He will manage it to Your Majesty's entire Satisfaction. Laltly, the King, my Malter, has comnianded me to af: fure Your Majesty, that being, upon leveral Accounts, concern'd in the Profperity of Your Royal Family, He will, to the utmost of his Fif

Power, Power, promote its Interest and Advantage, and desires Your Majesty to be perswaded, that all the Advances He has made in this Affair have no other Aim, and are grounded upon no other Principle. faglia, P: 372
