final plaudit, WELL DONE THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT, ENTER THOU INTO THE JOY OF THY LORD.

It is for the general advantage of mankind that Your Majesty's consummation of glory and bliss be deferred for many years.

The world has not yet so far availed itself of the illustrious example of every social, every christian virtue held forth in Your Majesty's conduct, as to bear the loss of You without inexpressible forrow.

That Your Majesty, therefore, may long live the beloved of our most gracious Sovereign, and to extreme age continue the theme of every liberal tongue; that your

princely princely Offspring, treading in the steps of their Royal Parents, may proceed the guardians and protectors of British Liberties and Laws till this great globe shall be diffolved, must be the frequent and fervent prayer of every faithful subject, especially of,

M A D A M,

Your Majesty's

Moft grateful

And dutiful Servant,

Daniel Bellamy.
