And, upon his Return, made Report, that the King's Majesty made a gracious Speech in Answer thereunto; wherein his Majesty was pleased to give very hearty Thanks to this House, for their great Present; and declared, that he had received the Benefit of it before he had it; the Reputation thereof having given his Majesty Credit, both at Home and Abroad: And that his Majesty was not more willing to give his Royal Assent to That Bill, than he should be to pass any Bills whatsoever, which this House should present unto him, for his People's Good.
