Page 44 - It is impossible that the allied powers should extend their political system to any portion of either continent without endangering our peace and happiness; nor can any one believe that our Southern brethren, if left to themselves, would adopt It of their own accord. It is equally impossible, therefore, that we should behold such interposition, in any form, with indifference.
Page 314 - ... abstain from all interference with the religious belief or worship of any of our subjects on pain of our highest displeasure.

Page 313 - We declare it to be our royal will and pleasure that none be in any wise favoured, none molested or disquieted, by reason of their religious faith or observances, but that all shall alike enjoy the equal and impartial protection of the law...
