His Majesty's Speech.
The Firmness, Wisdom, and public Spirit, by which your Conduct has been eminently distinguished on the many important Occasions which have arisen during the present Session, demand my peculiar Acknowledgements.
"Your firm Determination to support the established Constitution, and the zealous and general Concurrence in that Sentiment which My Subjects have so strongly and seasonably manifested, could not fail to check every Attempt to disturb the internal Repose of these Kingdoms; and you will, I doubt not, in your several Counties, encourage the Continuance of the same vigilant Attention to that important Object. The rapid and signal Successes which, in an early Period of the Campaign have attended the Operations of the Combined Armies; the respectable and powerful Force which you have enabled Me to employ by Sea and Land, and the Measures which I have concerted with other Powers for the effectual Prosecution of the War, afford the best Prospect of a happy Issue to the important Contest in which We are engaged. It is only by Perseverance in vigorous Exertions, and by endeavouring to improve the Advantages already acquired, that We can hope to attain the great End to which My Views are uniformly directed—the Restoration of Peace on such Terms as may be consistent with Our permanent Security, and with the general Tranquility of Europe."
"I return you My particular Thanks for the Cheerfulness and Dispatch with which you have granted the necessary Supplies; and I am happy to reflect that you have been enabled liberally to provide for the Exigencies of the Public Service, in a Manner so little burthensome to My People."
The Arrangements which you have formed for the Government of the British Territories in India, and for the Regulation of Our Commerce with that Part of the World, will, I doubt not, secure and augment the important Benefits which We have already derived from those valuable Possessions.
It has been impossible for Me to see without Concern the Embarrassment which has lately arisen in the State of Commercial Credit, but the Steps which you have taken, to prevent the Progress of that Evil, appear already to have been productive of very salutary Consequences; and while they have afforded a striking Instance of your Attention to the Interests of My People, their Effect has furnished additional Reason to believe that the Distress which has been felt, proceeded from a Concurrence of temporary Causes and not from any Diminution of the real Wealth, or any Failure in the permanent Resources of the Country.
"I am at the same Time persuaded, that if Our Commercial Interests had unavoidably been affected to a more considerable Extent, it would not have been forgotten, that We are contending for Our future Security, and for the permanent Preservation of Advantages, the most striking and the most valuable which any Nation has ever, by the Blessing of Providence, been permitted to enjoy."
"It is His Majesty's Royal Will and Pleasure, that this Parliament be prorogued to Tuesday the Thirteenth Day of August next, to be then here holden; and this Parliament is accordingly prorogued to Tuesday the 13th Day of August next."
