|Herefordshire Freeholders Deploring the American Rebellion
In December 1775 this address of the sheriff, gentlemen, clergy and freeholders of Herefordshire was presented to king George III: 'To confirm the Liberties of Britain by the Establishment of the Legislative Powers of Parliament, our Ancestors sacrificed their Blood; and to secure those Liberties to their Posterity, transferred the Succession to the Crown to your Majesty’s Family. - To defend and maintain those Powers, we look up to your Majesty as the great Guardian of our Constitution; and permit us to assure your Majesty, that we shall chearfully concur in every Support which our Duty may call for, or our Abilities can furnish, towards the Success of your Majesty’s Arms over your rebellious Subjects; at the same Time most ardently wishing, that your Majesty’s gracious Offers of Mercy, together with the firm Support of your dutiful and loyal Subjects, may influence the Hearts of the Rebellious to return to their Duty and Allegiance; and that your whole People reunited may, with us, be convinced, that to be a British Subject, with all its Consequences, is to be the freest Member of any Civil Society in the World. And we pray to God, that your Majesty and your Progeny may long reign over these Realms in undisturbed Peace and undiminished Splendor.' The subscribers' names are given in full, christian name first.
