Who being come;

Mr. Addington Speaker of H. C. presented and approved.

Mr. Addington said,

Most Gracious Sovereign,

Then His Majesty was pleased to speak as follows,

His Majesty's Speech.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

It is a great Satisfaction to Me to inform you, that the Differences which had arisen between Me and the Court of Spain, have happily been brought to an amicable Termination.

I have ordered Copies of the Declarations exchanged between My Ambassador and the Minister of the Catholic King, and of the Convention which has since been concluded, to be laid before you.

The Objects which I have proposed to Myself in the whole of this Transaction, have been to obtain a suitable Reparation for the Act of Violence committed at Nootka, and to remove the Grounds of similar Disputes in future, as well as to secure to My Subjects the Exercise of their Navigation, Commerce, and Fisheries, in those Parts of the World which were the Subject of Discussion.

The Zeal and Public Spirit manifested by all Ranks of My Subjects, and the Disposition and Conduct of My Allies, had left Me no Room to doubt of the most vigorous and effectual Support, but no Event could have afforded Me so much Satisfaction as the Attainment of the Objects which I had in View, without any actual Interruption of the Blessings of Peace.

Since the last Session of Parliament a Foundation has been laid for a Pacification between Austria and the Porte, and I am now employing My Mediation, in Conjunction with My Allies, for the Purpose of negociating a Definitive Treaty between those Powers, and of endeavouring to put an End to the Dissentions in the Netherlands, in whose Situation I am necessarily concerned from Considerations of National Interest, as well as from the Engagements of Treaties.

A separate Peace has taken Place between Russia and Sweden, but the War between the former of those Powers and the Porte still continues. The Principles on which I have hitherto acted, will make Me always desirous of employing the Weight and Influence of this Country in contributing to the Restoration of general Tranquillity.

Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

I have ordered the Accounts of the Expences of the late Armaments, and the Estimates for the ensuing Year, to be laid before you.

Painful as it is to Me at all Times to see any Encrease of the Public Burthens, I am persuaded you will agree with Me in thinking, that the Extent of Our Preparations was dictated by a due Regard to the existing Circumstances, and that you will reflect with Pleasure on so striking a Proof of the Advantages derived from the liberal Supplies granted since the last Peace for the naval Service. I rely on your Zeal and public Spirit, to make due Provision for defraying the Charges incurred by this Armament, and for supporting the several Branches of the public Service on such a Footing as the general Situation of Affairs may appear to require. You will at the same Time, I am persuaded, shew your Determination invariably to persevere in that System which has so effectually confirmed and maintained the public Credit of the Nation.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

You will have observed with Concern the Interruption which has taken Place in the Tranquillity of Our Indian Possessions, in consequence of the unprovoked Attack on an Ally of the British Nation. The respectable State, however, of the Forces under the Direction of the Government there, and the Confidence in the British Name, which the System prescribed by Parliament, has established among the Native Powers in India, afford the most favourable Prospect of bringing the Contest to a speedy and successful Conclusion.

I think it necessary particularly to call your Attention to the State of the Province of Quebec, and to recommend it to you, to consider of such Regulations for its Government as the present Circumstances and Condition of the Province may appear to require.

I am satisfied that I shall on every Occasion receive the fullest Proofs of your zealous and affectionate Attachment, which cannot but afford Me peculiar Satisfaction, after so recent an Opportunity of collecting the immediate Sense of My People.

You may be assured, that I desire nothing so much on My Part, as to cultivate an entire Harmony and Confidence between Me and My Parliament, for the purpose of preserving and transmitting to Posterity the invaluable Blessings of Our free and excellent Constitution, and of concurring with you in every Measure which can maintain the Advantages of Our present Situation, and promote and augment the Prosperity and Happiness of My faithful Subjects."

His Majesty's Speech reported:

And the same being read by the Clerk;

Order' for Address thereon:

Ordered, Nemine Dissentiente, "That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, to return His Majesty our humble Thanks for His most gracious Speech from the Throne.

To condole with His Majesty on the Loss His Majesty and His Royal Family have sustained by the Death of His late Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, whose many amiable Qualities, as they had endeared him to the Nation, cannot but excite universal Regret for his untimely Loss.

To express the sincere Joy with which we receive from His Majesty the Information of the Differences which had subsisted between His Majesty and the Court of Spain having been happily brought to an amicable Termination; and at the same Time that we offer to His Majesty our hearty Congratulations on so happy and important an Event, to return His Majesty our Thanks for having been graciously pleased to order Copies of the Declarations exchanged between His Majesty's Ambassador and the Minister of the Catholic King, and of the Convention which has since been concluded, to be laid before us.

To acknowledge with the highest Gratitude His Majesty's Paternal Care for the National Honour, and for the Interests of His People, manifested by His Majesty in having in the whole of this Transaction made it His Object to obtain a suitable Reparation for the Act of Violence committed at Nootka, and to remove the Grounds of similar Disputes in future, as well as to secure to His Majesty's Subjects the Exercise of their Navigation, Commerce, and Fisheries in those Parts of the World which were the Subject of Discussion.

To declare our Sense of the Approbation His Majesty is graciously pleased to express of the Zeal and Public Spirit manifested by all Ranks of His Majesty's Subjects, and the sincere Pleasure with which we learn that the Disposition and Conduct of His Majesty's Allies had left His Majesty no Room to doubt of the most vigorous and effectual Support, but to unite most heartily with His Majesty in declaring that nothing could afford us so much Satisfaction as the Attainment of the Object which His Majesty had in View, without any actual Interruption of the Blessings of Peace.

To beg Leave to assure His Majesty of the sincere Pleasure we feel in learning that a Foundation has been laid for a Pacification between Austria and the Porte, and that His Majesty is now employing His Mediation, in Conjunction with His Allies, for the Purpose of negotiating a Definitive Treaty between those Powers, and of endeavouring to put an End to the Dissentions in the Netherlands; in whose Situation His Majesty in His great Goodness has been pleased to declare He is necessarily concerned from Considerations of National Interests, as well as from the Engagements of Treaties.

To assure His Majesty of our hearty Concurrence in the benevolent Principles on which His Majesty has hitherto acted, and in such Measures as His Majesty in His Wisdom shall think proper to pursue, for employing the Weight and Influence of this Country in contributing to the Restoration of general Tranquillity.

To assure His Majesty, that convinced as we are that the Extent of the late Preparations was dictated by a due Regard to the existing Circumstances, we reflect with the highest Pleasure on so striking a Proof of the Advantages derived from the liberal Supplies granted since the last Peace for the Naval Service, and that we are ready to concur in making due Provision for defraying the Charges incurred by this Armament, and for supporting the several Branches of the Public Service on such a Footing as the general Situation of Affairs may appear to require, as well as for the invariable Adherence to that System which has so effectually confirmed and maintained the Public Credit of the Nation.

To express our Concern at the Interruption which has taken Place in the Tranquillity of our Indian Possessions, in consequence of the unprovoked Attack on an Ally of the British Nation; but at the same Time to declare our sincere Satisfaction in reflecting on the respectable State of the British Force under the Direction of the Government there, and on the Confidence in the British Name which the System prescribed by Parliament has established among the Native Powers in India, as affording the most favourable Prospects of bringing the Contest to a speedy and successful Conclusion.

To assure His Majesty that we shall bestow the most particular Attention to the State of the Province of Quebec, and to the Consideration of such Regulations for its Government, as the present Circumstances and Condition of the Province may appear to require.

And conscious of the inestimable Blessings we enjoy under His Majesty's mild and auspicious Government, with grateful Hearts to assure His Majesty of our most zealous and affectionate Attachment, and of our firm Reliance on His Majesty's most gracious Assurance of His Desire to cultivate an entire Harmony and Confidence between Himself and His Parliament, in which we shall ever most cordially unite, for the Purpose of preserving and transmitting to Posterity, the invaluable Blessings of our free and excellent Constitution, and of concurring with His Majesty in every Measure which can maintain the Advantages of our present Situation, can promote and augment the Prosperity and Happiness of His Majesty's Subjects, or can evince the just and grateful Sense we entertain of His Majesty's paternal Regard and watchful Care for the Rights, Interests, and Welfare of His faithful People."

And the Earl Poulet reported from the Committee an Address drawn by them as follows; (videlicet)

Most Gracious Sovereign,

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

Permit us, Sir, to condole with Your Majesty on the Loss Your Majesty, and Your Royal Family have sustained, by the Death of His late Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, whose many amiable Qualities as they had endeared him to the Nation, cannot but excite universal Regret for his untimely Loss. It is with the sincerest Joy that we receive from Your Majesty, the Information of the Differences which had subsisted between Your Majesty and the Court of Spain, having been happily brought to an amicable Termination; and at the same Time, that we offer to Your Majesty our hearty Congratulations on so happy and important an Event, we beg Leave to return Your Majesty our Thanks, for having been graciously pleased to order Copies of the Declarations exchanged between Your Majesty's Ambassador and the Minister of the Catholic King, and of the Convention which has since been concluded, to be laid before us.

We acknowledge with the highest Gratitude Your Majesty's Paternal Care for the National Honour and for the Interests of Your People, manifested by Your Majesty, in having in the whole of this Transaction made it Your Object to obtain a suitable Reparation for the Act of Violence committed at Nootka, and to remove the Grounds of similar Disputes in future, as well as to secure to Your Majesty's Subjects the Exercise of their Navigation, Commerce, and Fisheries, in those Parts of the World which were the Subject of Discussion.

We are truly sensible of the Approbation Your Majesty is graciously pleased to express of the Zeal and Public Spirit manifested by all Ranks of Your Majesty's Subjects, and we learn with sincere Pleasure, that the Disposition and Conduct of Your Majesty's Allies had left Your Majesty no Room to doubt of the most vigorous and effectual Support; but we most heartily unite with Your Majesty in declaring, that nothing could afford us so much Satisfaction as the Attainment of the Objects which Your Majesty had in view, without any actual Interruption of the Blessings of Peace.

We beg Leave to assure Your Majesty of the sincere Pleasure we feel in learning, that a Foundation has been laid for a Pacification between Austria and the Porte, and that Your Majesty is now employing Your Mediation in Conjunction with Your Allies, for the Purpose of negociating a Definitive Treaty between those Powers, and of endeavouring to put an End to the Dissentions in the Netherlands, in whose Situation Your Majesty in Your great Goodness has been pleased to declare You are necessarily concerned, from Considerations of National Interest, as well as from the Engagements of Treaties; and we beg Leave to assure Your Majesty of our hearty Concurrence in the benevolent Principles on which Your Majesty has hitherto acted, and in such Measures as Your Majesty in Your Wisdom shall think proper to pursue, for employing the Weight and Influence of this Country, in contributing to the Restoration of general Tranquillity.

Convinced as we are, that the Extent of the late Preparations was dictated by a due Regard to the existing Circumstances, we reflect with the highest Pleasure on so striking a Proof of the Advantages derived from the liberal Supplies granted since the last Peace for the Naval Service, and we beg Leave to assure Your Majesty of our utmost Readiness to concur in making due Provision for defraying the Charges incurred by this Armament, and for supporting the several Branches of the Public Service on such a Footing as the general Situation of Affairs may appear to require, as well as for the invariable Adherence to that System, which has so effectually confirmed and maintained the Public Credit of the Nation.

The Interruption which has taken Place in the Tranquillity of our Indian Possessions, in consequence of the unprovoked Attack on an Ally of the British Nation, has afforded us much Concern. We reflect, however, with sincere Satisfaction on the respectable State of the British Force under the Direction of the Government there, and on the Confidence in the British Name, which the System prescribed by Parliament has established among the Native Powers in India, as affording the most favourable Prospect of bringing the Contest to a speedy and successful Conclusion.

We beg Leave to assure Your Majesty that we shall bestow the most particular Attention to the State of the Province of Quebec, and to the Consideration of such Regulations for its Government, as the present Circumstances and Conditions of the Province may appear to require.

Conscious as we are of the inestimable Blessings we enjoy under Your Majesty's mild and auspicious Government, we beg Leave with grateful Hearts to assure Your Majesty of our most zealous and affectionate Attachment, and of our firm Reliance on Your Majesty's most gracious Assurances of Your Desire to cultivate an entire Harmony and Confidence between Yourself and Your Parliament, in which we shall ever most cordially unite for the purpose of preserving and transmitting to Posterity the invaluable Blessings of our free and excellent Constitution, and of concurring with Your Majesty in every Measure which can maintain the Advantages of our present Situation, can promote and augment the Prosperity and Happiness of Your Majesty's Subjects, or can evince the just and grateful Sense we entertain of Your Majesty's Paternal Regard and watchful Care for the Rights, Interests, and Welfare of Your faithful People."

Which Address, being read by the Clerk, was agreed to by the House.

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

Ordered, That the Lords with white Staves do wait on His Majesty humbly to know what Time His Majesty will please to appoint to be attended therewith.
