Anno 1o Georgii Tertii.
DIE Jovis, 8o Octobris.
The Lord Archbishop of Canterbury declared in the
House, "That His Majesty had caused a Writ to be
issued, under the Great Seal, for the further Prorogation of the Parliament."
And the same was read, by the Clerk, as follows:
Parliament prorogued by Writ.
"George the Third, by the Grace of God, of
Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender
of the Faith, and so forth; To Our Well-beloved
and Faithful the Prelates, Nobles, and Peers, of Our
Kingdom of Great Britain; and to Our Beloved and
Faithful the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses, and
Commissioners for Shires and Boroughs, of Our
said Kingdom, called and chosen to Our Parliament,
to be begun and held, at Our City of Westminster,
the Eighth Day of October next; and to every of you;
Greeting. Whereas, for certain arduous and urgent
Affairs, concerning Us, the State and Defence of
Our Kingdom of Great Britain and the Church, We
did ordain the said Parliament to be begun and held,
at the aforesaid City, on the Nineteenth Day of May
last past, and did command you, by Our several Writs,
to be present at the City and Day aforesaid, to treat,
consent, and conclude, about those Things which in
Our said Parliament then and there should be proposed and treated of: And whereas We, by Our
Writ, for certain Causes and Considerations Us
thereunto especially moving, have thought fit to prorogue Our said Parliament, from the same Nineteenth
Day of May unto the Second Day of July last past;
and from thence, by another Writ, unto the Third
Day of September Instant; and from thence, by another Writ, to the Eighth Day of October next; so
that neither you, nor any of you, should be held or
obliged to appear on the said Days at the said City,
being willing that you and every of you be wholly
discharged as to Us therefrom; and, by the same Writ,
We lately commanded you and every of you to appear and be personally present on the said Eighth
Day of October next, at the City aforesaid, to treat,
do, act, and conclude, upon those Things which in
Our said Parliament should happen to be ordained:
Nevertheless, for certain Causes and Considerations
Us hereunto especially moving, We have thought fit
further to prorogue Our said Parliament, from the
said Eighth Day of October next, unto the Third Day
of November next following, so that neither you nor
any of you should be held or obliged to appear on
the said Eighth Day of October next at the aforesaid
City; We will, therefore, that you, and every of you,
be wholly discharged as to Us therefrom; commanding, and by the Tenor of these Presents strictly requiring, you, and every of you, and all others whom
this may concern, that you, and every of you, do personally appear and be present, on the said Third Day
of November, at Our said City of Westminster, to
treat, do, act, and conclude, upon those Things,
which in Our said Parliament, by the common Council of Our said Kingdom (by God's Assistance), shall
happen to be ordained.
"Witness Ourself, at Westminster, the Twentyfourth Day of September, in the First Year
of Our Reign.
