we ought ever to have present to our thoughts the great truth, which the National Assembly has pronounced, and which can never be repeated in vain, "that the power and happiness of the King cannot be maintained with dignity, nor established with durability, unless they have for their foundation the good and liberty of the people.
"Condescend Mr. President, to be our interpreter to the Assembly, and offer them, in our name, our sincere protestation, that we will not exercise any public function that shall not do us honor by is principle, and that we shall firmly and steadily govern ourselves by this maxim. We are, with respect, mr. President, your very humble and obedient servants.
J. G. ARCH. DE VIENNE, J. M. ARCH. DE BOURDEAUX, LA TOUR DU PIN."
