Answer to the King.
MR. Treasurer gives a Report, of what he was intreated by this House; "We acquainted his Majesty, that you had spent from Ten a Clock till six at Night, in Debating of the great Business of Supply, and taking the Message into Consideration; and upon the Opening thereof, presently resolved themselves into a Committee; and acquainted him with no more Particulars, but that the Weight of the Business was such, that the House having spent the whole day, resolved upon this Order now read; and that you had commanded us to deliver thus much from the House to his Majesty."
