12 TIIE PUBLIC LAW OF FINLAND.

" Aucune influence, aucune
autorité étrangère à la vôtre
n’osa franchir le seuil de
ces portes. J’ai veillé sur
l’indépendance de vos
opinions. Absent, je me trouvai
au milieu de vous par les
voeux que je ne cessais de
faire pour le succès de vos
travaux.

" Les avis que vous venez
d’émettre portent le caractère
de la sagesse et de l’amour de
la patrie. Je les prendrai en
considération dans l’œuvre
importante que je médite pour
votre prospérité.

4 4 Vos travaux cessent dès ce
moment. Mais en vous
séparant, vous avez des devoirs
essentiels à remplir.

44 Portez dans le sein de vos
provinces, imprimez dans
l’esprit de vos compatriotes
la même confiance qui a
présidé ici à vos délibérations.
Inspirez-leur la même
assurance sur les objets les plus
importans à votre existence
politique, le maintien de vos
lois, la sûreté personnelle, le
respect inviolable de vos
propriétés.

" No extraneous influence
nor authority has dared to
cross the threshold of these
portals. I have kept watch
over the independence of your
opinions. Absent, I was ever
in your midst by the prayers
that I never ceased to offer
up for the success of your
labours.

" The opinions to which
you have just given utterance
bear the stamp of wisdom
and of love for fatherland.
I shall take them into
consideration in the important
work that I am contemplating
for your prosperity.

u Your labours cease from
this moment. But in
separating, you have essential
duties to perform.

" Carry into the distant parts
of your provinces, impress on
the minds of your compatriots,
that same confidence which
has presided over your
deliberations here. Inspire them
with the same assurance
concerning the most important
objects of your political
existence, the maintenance of your
laws, the security of your
persons, and the inviolability
of your property.
