The Resource A declaration of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament : shewing the imminent danger in which the kingdom now stands, by reason of a malignant party prevailing with His Majesty, putting Him upon violent and perillous wayes, and now in Arms against them, to the hazarding of His Majesties person, and for the oppression of the true religion, the laws and liberties of this kingdom, and the power and priviledges of parliament; all which every honest man is bound to defend. Wherefore the Lords and Commons do now think fit to give this accompt unto the world, to be a satisfaction unto all men, of the justice of their proceedings. And to require all those who have any sence of piety, honour, or compassion, to help a distressed state, especially such as have taken the protestation, and are bound in the same duty with us unto their God, their King, and Country, to come in unto our aid and assistance: This being the true cause for which we raise an army, under the command of the Earl of Essex, with whom in this cause we will live and dye. Neverthelesse, if they will not come to help the Parliament, and save themsleves, though both they and we must perish, yet have we discharged our consciences, and delivered our souls; and we will look for a reward in Heaven, should we be so ill requited upon earth, by those of whom we have so well deserved, ordered by the Commons in Parliament, that this Declaration be forthwith printed and published, H.
