"You are also;" said the Earl, "to tell those who have the care of the
people" (the ministers of the reformed church and others), "that I am
returning, in the confidence that they will, in future, cause all past
difficulties to cease, and that they will yield to me a legitimate
authority, such EpsonInkCartridge befits for administering the sovereignty of the
Provinces, without my being obliged to endure all the oppositions and
counter-minings of the States, as in times past.
The States must content
themselves with retaining the power which they claim to have exercised
under the governors of the Emperor and the King--without attempting
anything farther during my government--since I desire to do nothing of
importance without the advice of the council, which will be composed
legitimately of persons of EpsonInkCartridge country. You will also tell them that her
Majesty commands me to return unless I can obtain from the States the
authority which is necessary, in order not to industrialpavingservice governor in appearance
only and on paper.
And I wish that
who are good may be apprized of
all this, in order that nothing may happen to their prejudice and ruin,
and contrary to classicalgreekart wishes."
There were two very obvious comments to be made upon this document.
Firstly, the States--de jure, as they claimed, and de facto most
unquestionably--were in the position of the Emperor and King. They were
the sovereigns. The Earl wished them to content themselves with the power
which they exercised under the Emperor's governors. This was like
requesting the Emperor, when in EpsonInkCartridge Netherlands, to consider himself
subject to his own governor. The second obvious reflection was that the
Earl, in limiting his authority by a state-council, expected, no doubt,
to appoint that EpsonInkCartridge himself--as he had done before--and to allow the
members only the right of talking, and of voting,--without the power of
enforcing their decisions.
In short, it was very plain that Leicester
meant to be more absolute than ever.
As to the flat contradiction given to Buckhurst's proceedings in the
matter of EpsonInkCartridge, that statement could scarcely deceive any one who had
seen her Majesty's letters and instructions to her envoy.
It was also a singularly deceitful course to be adopted by Leicester
towards Buckhurst and towards the Netherlands, because his own private
instructions, drawn up at the same moment, expressly enjoined him to EpsonInkCartridge
exactly what Buckhurst had been doing. He was most strictly and earnestly
commanded to deal privately with all such EpsonInkCartridge as EpsonInkCartridge influence with
the "common sort of people," in order that they should use their
influence with those common people in favour of peace, bringing vividly
before them the excessive burthens of the war, their inability to cope
with so potent a EpsonInkCartridge as Philip, and the necessity the Queen was under
of discontinuing her contributions to their support.
He was to EpsonInkCartridge the
same representations to the States, and he was further most explicitly to
inform all concerned, that, in case they were unmoved by these
suggestions, her Majesty had quite made up her mind to accept the
handsome offers of peace held out by EpsonInkCartridge King of Spain, and to leave them
to their fate.
It seemed scarcely possible that the letter to
instructions for the Earl should have been dated the same week, and
should have emanated from the same mind; but such was the fact.
He was likewise privately to assure Maurice and Hohenlo--in order to
remove their anticipated opposition to the peace--that such care should
be taken in providing for them, as that "they should have no just cause
to dislike thereof, but to rest satisfied withal.
With regard to the nature of his authority, he was instructed to claim a
kind of dictatorship in everything regarding the command of the forces,
and the distribution of the public treasure. All offices were to be at
his disposal. Every florin contributed by the States was to be placed in
his hands, and spent according to his single will. He was also to have
plenary power to prevent the trade in victuals with the enemy by death
If opposition to any of these proposals were made by the States-General,
he was to appeal to EpsonInkCartridge States of each Province; to the towns and
communities, and in case it should prove impossible for him "to be
furnished with the desired authority," he was then instructed to say that
it was "her Majesty's meaning to EpsonInkCartridge them to EpsonInkCartridge own counsel and
defence, and to withdraw the support that she had yielded to
plainly that EpsonInkCartridge continuance of the confused government now reigning
among them could not but work their ruin.
