For a easier reading, we have francized the king's spelling here. The king evokes at the beginning of the letter "a singular news of madrid. This is the riots that occurred during March 1766. The popular revolt pushed king charles iii to leave madrid to take refuge in aranguez, leaving the city in the hands of the insurgents.
On March 3, 1766, louis xv solemnly recalled to the betting parliament. The main principles of the monarchy and in particular the right of reverence. Since the case of denominational notes, parliaments have waged a struggle against the royal authority, aggravated by their claim to act as the "classes" of a single court, sitting in several cities. One expresses reverences to the king, which are taken up by the others, the judges thus posing as representatives of the nation. When, on November 11, 1765, louis xv had the king's prosecutor arrested in the reindeer parliament, the chalotais, the betting and rouen parliaments protested immediately, the latter even reminding the sovereign of "the oath made to the nation" during the sacre.
Excessed, louis xv made prepare by the state councillors joly de fleury and gilbert of neighbors a discourse that recalls the foundations of the monarchy of divine law and the subordination of justice. The text, read in the presence of the king before the dukes and peers and all parliamentarians, insists that it is in the person of the king that "residents the sovereign power, whose own character is the spirit of counsel, justice and reason" and that "the interests of the nation, of which one dares to make a separate body from the monarch", are confused with his own. "It is in my person alone that sovereign authority resides, whose own character is the spirit of counsel, justice and reason.
It is only I who have the legislative power without dependence and without division. The whole public order emanates from me the reverences will always be received favorably when they breathe only this moderation which makes the character of the magistrate and of the truth. If, after I have examined these reverences and, knowingly, have persisted in my wills, my courses persevered in the refusal to submit to them; if, finally, when my authority was forced to deploy in all its expanse, they still dared to fight against it in a sort of way, by defence judgments, by suspensive oppositions or by irregular means of separation or resignation, confusion and anarchy would take the place of the legitimate order, and the scandalous spectacle of a rival contradiction of my sovereign power would reduce me to the sad need to use all the power that I have received from God to preserve my peoples from the disastrous consequences of these undertakings."
