Sheweth,

THat considering the many unhappy Distractions lately grown in Church and Common-Wealth, through the malicious practice of a malignant Party, labouring to breed Jealousies betwixt the King and His People, We are enforced to expresse in this our humble Declaration, our desires and re­solutions to spend our lives and estates in the de­fence of His Majesties Person, The true Protestant Religion, the Peace of the Realm, the maintenance of the Rights and Priviledges of Parliament, the Laws of the Land, and the lawfull Li­berties of the Subjects, according to our late Protestation, against all such as shall attempt to separate His Majesty from His great and faithfull Councell of Parliament, and by that means to alienate His Majesties af­fection from His loyall Subjects: And this our Declaration we humbly desire your Lordship to represent from us to the High and Honourable Court of Parliament.

Subscribed with many thousand hands.
