There were two. One the king. It was an open letter to the king stating why the colonies were declaring independence and stating "that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, Free and Independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; and that, as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and do all other acts and things which independent states may of right to do." The other audience was the colonies to show the history of the king. This informed the colonies that they were free of the king and why. Yet, it took some doing to convince people that this was a good idea. On December 22, 1775 the king signed the American Prohibition Act into law that put the colonies outside the protection of the crown and ending their obligation of allegiance. Thomas Paine's Common Sense published in Jan of 1776 brought to the growing sense in the colonies that George III was a "royal brute" who merit disdain rather than allegiance. Even many held back, but by June 1776 opinion was that the king himself had broken his allegiance to his people.

The Declaration seems to be addressing several audiences: the 'American' public, other European nations, and King George III.
