debated in any such Executive Council, faithfully, honestly and truly declare your mind and
opinion, to the honour and benefit of the Queen's Majesty and the good of Her subjects,
without partiality or exception of persons, in no wise forbearing so to do from any manner of
respect, favour, love, meed, displeasure, or dread of any person or persons whatsoever. In
general you will be vigilant, diligent and circumspect in all your doings touching the Queen's
Majesty's affairs. All which matters and things you will faithfully observe and keep, as a
good Councillor ought to do, to the utmost of your power, will and discretion.
So help you God.
