My Lords, and Gentlemen,

It is with the utmost Satisfaction that I have observed the Wisdom and Moderation, which have uniformly guided you, through the many important Deliberations in which you have been engaged during the Course of this long and interesting Session of Parliament: I persuade Myself that the most salutary Effects must be the natural Result of Deliberations conducted upon such Principles.

Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

I thank you for the Supplies, which you have so cheerfully given, for the several Establishments, and for the Support of public Credit; and you may left assured that no Economy will be wanting, to render, them effectual for the Purposes for which they were granted.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

The present general Disposition of all the Powers of Europe seems to indicate a Continuance of Peace: And it is My earnst Desire to preserve the general Tranquillity, by fulfilling, on My Part, all the Engagements I am under by Treaties; and, on this Foundation, I may reasonably hope and expect the same Frist Performance of Those Engagements which other Powers are under to My Crown.

The many Regulations which you have made, for extending and promoting the Trade and Manufactures of Great Britain, and for settling the mutual Intercourse of My Kingdoms and Plantations, in such a Manner as to provide for the Improvement of the Colonies on a Plan of due Subordination to the Commercial Interests of the Mother Country, are the strongest Proofs of your equitable and comprehensive Regard to the Welfare of all My Dominions; an Object truly worthy of a British Parliament.

It shall be My Endeavour that much Care be taken as may tend to secure and improve the Advantages which may be expected from such wise and salutary Provisions.

“I have nothing further to recommend to you, than that you will exert your best Endeavours, in your respective Counties, to enforce the Execution of the Laws, and to promote good Manners and good Order among My People -, whose true and lasting Happiness shall be My constant Care, and upon whose Affections shall always firmly rely.”

Then the Lord Chancellor, having received Directions from His Majesty, Said,

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

Parliament prorogued.

“It is His Majesty’s Royal Will and Pleasure, that this Parliament be prorogued to Saturday the 12th Day of July next, to be then here held: And this Parliament is accordingly prorogued to Saturday the 12th Day of July next.”
