At the begin of the spanish war of succession Great Britain, the Netherlands and the Holy Roman Empire declared war on France. I want to read their declarations of war and i know they were publicated in various languages, but i can only find them in french. Does someone here know, where i can find the english version? Or are these declarations all lost and only the french translations survived?

What i could finde was the Livre Corps universel diplomatique du droit des gens VIII,1. Link is here: http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k122969g/f131.image.langFR
Also i found a german book called: Krieg und Frieden im Zeitalter Ludwigs XIV. Written by Heinz Duchhardt.
In both these declarations are printed but only in french. Duchhardt states that there are english versions, but he doesnt say where to finde them.
