Message from the King-Adjournment and Supply.
HIS Majesty judges it necessary for the Good of His Service, that the Gentlemen of this House (on whose Loyalty and Affection He depends, where-ever they are) should be present in their respective Countries; and therefore designs there should be a Recess in a very few Days: But because the Rebellion in the West will occasion an extraordinary Expence, His Majesty desires there may be a good Fund of Credit provided, for a present Sum of Money, to answer the immediate Charge His Majesty must be at: And, to the end none of the Bills new depending may be prejudiced, His Majesty is pleased, that this Separation shall be an Adjournment, and for some short time only. Given at our Court at Whitehall, the Eighteenth Day of June 1685.
