A Message to the Colonists from the crown and parliament
To the English men of the 13 colonies, Our Majesty, the King, has just recently passed the Declaratory Act. This act ensures that the colonists of the New World are dependent on our sovereign majesty, the King. This means that all laws passed by the King must be followed to ensure the safety and loyalty of the English colonists.
