Mr. Speaker reports, that, being with the House to attend his Majesty on Saturday, when his Majesty was pleased to speak to both Houses; he had, to prevent Mistakes, taken the Boldness to desire from his Majesty in Writing, what he was then pleased to deliver: Which he read to the House, and is as follows;
I Thank you for this Mark of your Affection to Me: I doubt not of the Continuance and Concurrence of it, in other Things, as well as in this of My Proclamation. I recommend to you, that you would weigh well what I say and desire in it, towards the Welfare and Peace of the Nation: In order to which, as I shall be always ready to contribute My utmost Endeavours, so I hope you will never be failing in yours, to enable Me to do it.
Resolved, &c. That the House will on Wednesday next proceed upon the Observations reported by the Commissioners of Accounts, in Order, as they are laid in the Report: And the Commissioners are desired then to attend.
