Excerpt from I. Reasons for Addressing His Majesty to Invite Into England Their Highnesses, the Electress Dowager and the Electoral Prince of Hanover: And Likewise, II. Reasons for Attainting and Abjuring the Pretended Prince of Wales, and All Others Pretending Any Claim, Right, or Title From the Late King James and Queen Mary; With Arguments for Making a Vigorous War Against France P'o'fflant line are to inherit the Crown. The Prime is but the Third in this Family, and tho by Reafon of his Youth we vou'd gladly have the Care of his Education, yet it was never meant by this that the Elec'lrefl {hou'd not com into England as lirlt of the Line; nor ought the Prime himfelf be without fuch an Inl'trueirei's as will influence him more than all the World befides. Her great Wililom and Knowlege are eonfelt and proclaim'cl all over Europe. She has had a Hand already in forming the Manners and Minds' of feveral Princes of both Sexes, the molt celebrated for all forts of Virtues and Endowments, wherof the prel'ent Elaflw' her Son, and the (been of Pruflia her Daughter are noble Examples, being admir'd by Strangers, ador'd by their Subjetls, and refpefled by all the well-alfefted Princes and States of Europe. We may think her Care will not be lel's about the Government of the Prince her Grand-child, who has bin hitherto train'd under her Infpefiion; and, confidering all Circum fiances, no other Perlbn can more truly reprefent to him his Duty, better arm him againi't F latterers, be a firifler Guard to him from corrupt Society, give him graver Admonition, or freer Reproof. Others will either do Nothing of this, or he perhaps not (0 well receive it at their Hands. But they are Aili fiances which no Youth of never foch promifing Hopes lhou'd want, efpecially fince no Body is born infpir'd, and that as great Pains are requifit to moderat Men's Pallions as to form their Underi'tandings. God be prais'd he's paf't the Management of Governors appointed rather for State than Infiruftion, and not to be fpoil'd by the Stiifnefs, Formality, and Pedantry of inferior Pedagogs, which prevents a great deal of Contention about the Choice or Fitnefs of the Perfons, and removes the Jealoufy which thofe of any Party might have againfi: another about the infufing or fettling of his Principles; yet he's not above the Advice of one who is of no Sidcot Faetion, but intirely devoted to the public Interel't of the Nation; and who (how falfe foever the Pretences of others may be from their felfilh Defigns) mui't be confeft to wilh him the belt of any in the World, and confequently will be perpetually inflilling into him what will make for his Advantage, Security, Glory, and Felicity, without any pri vat End of her own.
