This Day Charles Lord Grey de Rolleston sat as Lord North, upon the Decease of his Father Dudley Lord North.

The Lord Chancellor acquainted the House, "That he had received a Signification, under His Majesty's Sign Manual:" Which his Lordship read, as followeth:

Message from the King, to adjourn.


"His Majesty, having given Notice, by His Proclamation, That He intended the Houses should be adjourned till the Fourth of April, hath now, for weighty Considerations, thought fit to meet with both Houses sooner; and therefore His Pleasure is, That this House be adjourned to the Fifteenth of January next."

And accordingly,


Dominus Cancellarius declaravit præsens Parliamentum adjournandum esse usque in decimum quintum diem Januarii proxime futuri, hora decima Aurora, Dominis sic decernentibus.
