King present:

His Majesty, being seated on the Throne, adorned with His Crown and Regal Ornaments, and attended with His Officers of State; the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cumberland (in their Robes) sitting in their respective Places (the Lords being also in their Robes); commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to let the Commons know, "It is His Majesty's Pleasure, that they attend Him immediately, in this House."

Who being come, with their Speaker;

His Majesty spake as follows:

His Majesty's Speech.

"My Lords, and Gentlemen,

"The present important Conjuncture of Affairs will, I am persuaded, be thought a sufficient Reason for calling you thus early together.

"I have, in Pursuance of the repeated Advice of My Parliament, taken such a Part as appeared to Me most conducive to the Support of the House of Austria, and to the restoring and securing of the Balance of Power. In this View, I ordered a considerable Body of Troops to be sent from hence into Flanders; and at the Close of the last Session I foresaw, and pointed out to you, that it might be incumbent upon Me to enter into further Measures for the same great and desirable Ends. The Augmentation of our Strength in The Low Countries became a necessary Step; for which Purpose I sent, in Concert with My Allies, Sixteen Thousand of My Electoral Troops thither, with the Hessians in the British Pay; in order to form such a Force, in Conjunction with the Austrian Troops, as might be of Service to the common Cause in all Events. And I doubt not but I shall have your Assistance in the Support of these necessary Measures.

"The Magnanimity and Firmness of the Queen of Hungary, notwithstanding so many numerous Armies sent against Her; the resolute Conduct of the King of Sardinia, and His strict Adherence to His Engagements, though attacked in His own Dominions; the Stop which has been hitherto put to the ambitious Designs of the Court of Spain in Italy (to which the Operations of My Fleet in The Mediterranean have so visibly contributed); the Change of Affairs in the North, which has appeared by the public Requisition made by Sweeden of My good Offices for procuring a Peace between Russia and that Crown; and the defensive Alliances agreed upon, not only between Me and the Czarina, but also between Me and the King of Prussia, are Events which could not have been expected, if Great Britain had not shewn a seasonable Spirit and Vigour in the Defence and Assistance of its ancient Allies, and in the Maintenance of the Liberties of Europe, as well as of its own true and lasting Interest.

"Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

"I have ordered the proper Estimates for the Service of the ensuing Year to be prepared and laid before you; and also an Accompt of the Expence of those particular Services which I have already mentioned; and which you will find to have been concerted in as frugal a Manner as the Nature of them would admit. I am persuaded, that you will readily grant Me such Supplies as shall be found necessary for the Security and Welfare of the Nation, requisite for the Support of the common Cause, and adequate to the present Emergency.

"My Lords, and Gentlemen,

"The Importance of your Deliberations at this Time is so evident, that I will say nothing to enforce it. The Honour and Interest of My Crown and Kingdoms, the Success of the War wherein I am engaged against Spain, and the Re-establishment of the Balance and Tranquillity of Europe, will greatly depend on the Prudence and Vigour of your Resolutions. Let it be your Care, to avoid every Thing that may either delay or weaken them; and to convince the World that you are determined to make a right Use of the present Opportunity."

The Speech being ended; His Majesty was pleased to retire; and the Commons withdrew.

PRAYERS.

V. Townshend and the Bp. of Exeter sworn.

Charles Lord Viscount Townshend and Nicholas Lord Bishop of Exeter took the Oaths, and made and subscribed the Declaration, and also took and subscribed the Oath of Abjuration, pursuant to the Statutes.

Select Vestries to regulate, Bill.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for the better regulating Select Vestries."

Speech reported.

The Lord Chancellor reported His Majesty's Speech.

And the same being read, by the Clerk:

Proposition for an Address:

It was proposed, "To resolve, That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, to return Him the Thanks of this House, for His most Gracious Speech from the Throne.

"To declare our just Sense of His Majesty's great Care and Vigilance, for the Support of the House of Austria, and for restoring and securing the Balance of Power.

"To acknowledge His Majesty's great Wisdom and Attention to the public Welfare, in sending so considerable a Body of His Forces into The Low Countries, and in strengthening them with His Electoral Troops and the Hessians in the British Pay; and thereby forming such an Army as may defend and encourage those Powers who are well intentioned, and give a real Assistance to the Queen of Hungary: And to assure His Majesty of the Concurrence and Support of this House, in this necessary Measure.

"To express our Satisfaction in the good Effects which the Vigour exerted by Great Britain, in assisting its ancient Allies, and maintaining the Liberties of Europe, hath already had on the Affairs of the Queen of Hungary, and the Conduct of several Powers; and our Hopes that a steady Perseverance in the same Measures will inspire the like Spirit and Resolution into other Powers, equally engaged by Treaties and common Interest to take the like Part.

"To give His Majesty the strongest Assurances, that this House has the Honour and Safety of His Majesty, the true Interest and Prosperity of His Kingdoms, the Security and Advancement of their Commerce, the Success of the War against Spain, and the Re-establishment of the Balance and Tranquillity of Europe, entirely at Heart; that these shall be the great and constant Objects of our Proceedings and Resolutions, this House being determined to support His Majesty in all just and necessary Measures for attaining those great and desirable Ends, and to stand by and defend His Majesty against all His Enemies."

And a Question being stated thereupon:

Additional Proposition.

It was proposed, "To add, at the End thereof, these Words; (videlicet,) ["And humbly to assure His Majesty, that we will apply our constant and persevering Endeavours to calm and heal all Animosities and Divisions, unseasonable as they are at all Times, and most pernicious in the present Juncture, which the true Fatherly Tenderness of His Majesty, out of the Abundance of His constant Care for the Rights and Liberties of His People, has so affectionately, at the Close of last Session, recommended from the Throne, by searching thoroughly and effectually into the Grounds which are or may be assigned for public Discontent, agreeably to the ancient Rules and Methods of Parliament."

The same was objected to.

And after Debate;

An Order was made, upon the First Proposition.

And the Lords following were appointed a Committee, to prepare an Address, pursuant thereunto; (videlicet,)

Then the House was adjourned during Pleasure; and the Committee withdrew, to draw the Address.

After some Time, the House was resumed.

And the Marquis of Tweeddale reported from the said Committee, "That they had prepared an Address, pursuant to the foregoing Order."

And the same, being read by the Clerk, was agreed to by the House; and is as follows; (videlicet,)

Address.

"Most Gracious Sovereign,

"We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, beg Leave to return Your Majesty our sincere and humble Thanks, for Your most Gracious Speech from the Throne.

"The Support of the House of Austria, and the restoring and securing the Balance of Power, are of so great Moment, as well to the essential Interests of this Nation in particular, as to the Liberties of Europe in general, that we esteem it our peculiar Felicity, in this critical and dangerous Conjuncture, to have a Prince upon the Throne, who not only shews the most Gracious Regard to the Advice of His Parliament upon this important Subject, but takes all Opportunities to confirm and animate them in the Pursuit of it. We acknowledge, with Hearts full of Gratitude, Your Majesty's Royal Wisdom and effectual Care in carrying on this great Work; which has appeared in nothing more than in sending so considerable a Body of Your Forces into The Low Countries, and in strengthening them afterwards with Your Electoral Troops and the Hessians in the British Pay. By this Step, so honourable to Your Majesty, and so advantageous to Your Allies, Your Majesty has demonstrated that You prefer this glorious Cause to all other Considerations; and has formed such an Army as may at once defend and encourage those Powers who are well-intentioned, and give a real Assistance to the Queen of Hungary. And we beg Leave to assure Your Majesty of our chearful and zealous Concurrence and Support in this necessary Measure.

"The good Effects which the Vigour exerted by Great Britain, under Your Majesty's Authority and Influence, in assisting its ancient Allies, and maintaining the Liberties of Europe, hath already had upon the Affairs of the Queen of Hungary, upon the Conduct of several Powers, and the State of Europe in general, are visible to all the World: It is with the utmost Satisfaction we observe them; and rely on Your Majesty's known Care and Attention to the public Welfare, to pursue and improve them. And we cannot but entertain well grounded Hopes, that so great an Example, and a steady Perseverance in the same Measures, will inspire the like Spirit and Resolution into other Powers, equally engaged by Treaties and common Interest to take the like Part.

"Your Majesty has laid before us so just a Representation of the Importance of our Deliberations at this Time, as cannot fail to make an Impression upon all true Lovers of their Country, equal to the Dignity and Weight of it. Permit us, on our Parts, to give Your Majesty the strongest Assurances, that we have the Honour and Safety of Your Majesty, the true Interest and Prosperity of Your Kingdoms, the Security and Advancement of their Commerce, the Success of the War against Spain, and the Re-establishment of the Balance and Tranquillity of Europe, entirely at Heart. These shall be the constant Objects of our Proceedings and Resolutions, from which we will never depart; being firmly determined to support Your Majesty in all just and necessary Measures for attaining those great and desirable Ends, and to stand by and defend Your Majesty and Your Government against all Your Enemies."

Ordered, That the said Address be presented to His Majesty by the whole House.
