YOur Noble Order, and your hallowed Name, Your Soueraign's Fauor, & your owne Profession, Promise Your Valour towards the Suppression Of Heathen Foes that Christian FAITH defame: Hence, here presume we (by the Trump of Fame) To call your Aide against the proud Oppression Of th' Infidel vsurping FAITH'S Possession, That Indian Tyrant, onely Englands Shame. Thousands of Ours here hath He Captiue taken, Of all Degrees, kept vnder slauish Yoak, Their God, their Good, King, Country, Friends forsaken To follow Follie and to feed on Smoake. Be GOD our Guide, St. GEORGE our Generall; VVee shall repell Him, and redeem Them All.

At Yor. Lops. Command IS The humble Eccho of The MVSES.
