To STEPHEN SIBTHORPE, Esq: one of the Knights of the Shire of the County of Lowth.

 

We, the free and independent Electors of the County of Lowth, take this early Opportunity of congratulating you on your this Day being chosen by so large a Majority, to the important Trust of representing us in Parliament in the Room of your Brother-in-law, our late worthy Representative, Lord Chief Baron Forster, and to express our Happiness in the Confidence which we have from our long acquaintance with your upright and steady Conduct, that your utmost Zeal will be exerted as eminently as his was, in promoting the Welfare and Prosperity of our Country.

 

After your public Declaration, and our private Knowledge of your Sentiments, in Favour of the Bill now depending, for limiting the Duration of Parliaments, we are confident that you will use every constitutional Means to procure for this Kingdom, a Law so essential to the Protestant Interest, the Support of our Liberty, and the ancient, legal, and unrepealed Right of all his Majesty's Subjects of Ireland.

 

You may be assured, that your Exertion in Parliament to acquire this long wished-for Support to our happy Constitution, will be the most pleasing Return you can make to your Constituents for the high Favour they have this Day conferred on you.
