King present.

His Majesty, being seated on the Throne, adorned with His Crown and Regal Ornaments, and attended by His Officers of State, (the Lords being in their Robes), commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod, to let the Commons know, “It is His Majesty’s Pleasure, they attend Him immediately, in this House.”

Who being come, with their Speaker; His Majesty was pleased to say.

“My Lords, and Gentlemen,

His Majesty’s Speech.

“The unusual Length of the last Session of Parliament made Me desirous of giving you as long a Recess as the Publick Service would admit. I have therefore been glad to find Myself under no Necessity of calling you from your respective Counties at an earlier Season; and I doubt not but you are now met together in the best Disposition for applying yourselves to the Dispatch of the Publick Business.
“You will, I am persuaded, agree with Me in regretting that the Peace, so long expected, and so very desirable, is not yet effected between Russia and the Porte; but it is with real Satisfaction I can repeat, that other Foreign Powers continue still to have the same Pacifick Dispositions with Myself. I can have no other Wish than to see the General Tranquillity restored, for the Establishment and subsequent Preservation of which no Endeavours of Mine, consistent with the Honour of My Crown, and the Interests of My People, shall ever be wanting.
“In this State of Foreign Affairs you will have full Leisure to attend to the Improvement of Our internal and domestick Situation; and to the Prosecution of Measures more immediately respecting the Preservation and Advancement of the Revenue and Commerce of the Kingdom. Among the Objects which, in this View, will come under your Consideration, none can better deserve your Attention than the State of the Gold Coin, which I must recommend to you in a more particular Manner, as well on Account of its very high Importance, as of the peculiar Advantages which the present Time affords for executing, with Success, such Measures as you may find it expedient to adopt with respect to this great National Concern. The Degree of Diminution which that Coin had actually suffered, and the very rapid Progress which the Mischief was daily making, were truly alarming: It is with much Satisfaction that I have seen the Evil in a great Measure checked by the Regulations made in the last Session of Parliament. I trust, however, that you will not stop here, nor think that you have discharged your Duty, either to your Country or your Fellow Subjects, without using your best Endeavours for putting the Gold Coin upon such a Footing as may not only completely remove the present Grievance, but render the Credit and Commerce of the Kingdom sufficiently secure from being again exposed to the like Danger.
“Gentlemen of the House of Commons,
“I have ordered the proper Estimates for the current Year to be laid before you; and rely on your Readiness to grant Me such Supplies as shall be found requisite in the present Situation of Affairs.
“My Lords, and Gentlemen,
“The Experience I have had of your past Conduct leaves Me no Room to doubt either of your Zeal or Prudence. In your Endeavours to promote the Welfare of your Country you will not suffer any Parts of the Publick Service to escape your Attention, but, various and extensive as those are, you will be careful to select, for your immediate Deliberation, such of them as shall appear to be most important; and you can propose no Measures that will serve either to secure or advance the Happiness and Prosperity of My People, in which you may not always depend on My most hearty Concurrence.”

Then His Majesty was pleased to retire;

And the Commons withdrew.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure to unrobe.

The House was resumed.

“To acknowledge that we are truly sensible of His Majesty’s Goodness in having granted us as long a Recess as the Publick Service would admit.
“To express our Concern that the Peace so long expected, and so very desirable, is not yet concluded between Russia and the Porte; to declare at the same Time the great Satisfaction we feel on hearing of the Continuance of the Pacifick Dispositions of other Foreign Powers; and to return our sincerest Thanks for His Majesty’s most Gracious Declaration that no Endeavours shall be wanting, on His Part, consistent with the Dignity of His Crown, and the Interests of His People, towards the Establishment and subsequent Preservation of the Publick Tranquillity.
“To assure His Majesty of the just Sense we entertain of His Majesty’s Paternal Care in recommending to His Parliament to make the proper Use of this Season of Tranquillity for improving the Commerce and Revenue of His Kingdom, and particularly in pointing out to us the Necessity, as well as the great National Advantage, of putting the Gold Coin on such a Footing as may completely remove the present Grievance, and secure the Credit and Commerce of the Kingdom from being again exposed to the like Danger: That the Wisdom and Goodness of His Majesty on this Occasion appear in so conspicuous a Light, as cannot fail to fill our Minds with the deepest Gratitude, and raise in us the strongest Desire of employing our utmost Efforts for such salutary Purposes.
“That, animated with every Sentiment of Duty to His Majesty, and Zeal for the Publick Welfare, we will take under our most serious Consideration the important Objects to which His Majesty has graciously directed our Attention.”

“Your Majesty may be assured, that we entertain the justest Sense of Your Majesty’s Paternal Care in recommending to Your Parliament to make use of this Season of Tranquillity for improving the Commerce and Revenue of the Kingdom, and in pointing out to us particularly the Necessity, and great National Advantage of putting the Gold Coin on such a Footing, as may completely remove the present Grievance, and secure the Credit and Commerce of the Kingdom from being again exposed to the like Danger: The Wisdom and Goodness of Your Majesty on this Occasion appear in so conspicuous a Light, as cannot fail to fill our Minds with the deepest Gratitude, and raise in us the strongest Desire of employing our utmost Efforts for such salutary Purposes.
