PRAYERS.

Cotton's Bill.

The Amendment made by the House of Commons in the Bill to enable Charles Cotton Esquire to sell Land, for Payment of Debts, and raising Portions for Younger Children, was read, and Agreed to.

Russell & al. Nat. Bill.

The Lord Privy Seal reported, "That the Committee have considered the Bill for Naturalization of Theodore Russell and others; and do think it fit to pass as it is, without any Amendment."

Then,

Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, "An Act for the Naturalization of Theodore Russell and others."

The Question being put, "Whether this Bill shall pass for a Law?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Bill concerning Lewis's Estate.

The Lord Privy Seal reported, "That the Committee have considered the Bill to enable Trustees to sell Lands, for Payment of the Debts of William Lewis Esquire; and do think it fit to pass as it is."

Then,

Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, "An Act for enabling Trustees to sell Lands, in the Counties of Glamorgan and Monmouth, for the Payment of the Debts of William Lewis Esquire deceased, and the Debts and Legacies of Edward Lewis Esquire deceased, his Son."

The Question being put, "Whether this Bill shall pass for a Law?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Committee to perfect the Journal.

ORDERED, That the Lords Committees for Perusal of the Journal Book have hereby Power and Authority, after the Prorogation of the Parliament, to peruse and perfect what remains unexamined of the Journal; and have a Week's Time to do it in.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, and many Lords went to wait upon the King in the Prince's Lodgings, where the King was robing Himself; and in this Interval the Lords did put on their Robes.

The House was resumed.

King present.

Then His Majesty sitting in His Royal Throne, adorned with His Regal Ornaments, commanded the Usher of the Black Rod to signify to the House of Commons His Majesty's Command, "That they come up presently, and attend Him, with their Speaker."

Who being come, His Majesty was pleased to give His Royal Assent to these Bills following.

The Clerk of the Crown read the Titles, and the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent to them severally and respectively.

Bills passed.

"1. An Act for granting a License to his Highness Prince Rupert Duke of Cumberland, for One and Thirty Years."

"2. An Act to enable Sir Francis Compton to make Sale of the Manor of Hammerton, in the County of Huntingdon."

"3. An Act for the Naturalization of Theodore Russell and others."

"4. An Act to enable Charles Cotton Esquire to sell Lands, for Payment of Debts, and raising Portions for Younger Children."

"5. An Act for enabling Trustees to sell Lands, in the Counties of Glamorgan and Monmouth, for the Payment of the Debts of William Lewis Esquire deceased, and the Debts and Legacies of Edward Lewis Esquire deceased, his Son."

To these Bills the Royal Assent was pronounced in these Words,

"Soit fait come il est desiré."

Then His Majesty made a Speech to this Effect:

King's Speech.

"My Lords and Gentlemen,

"I think I have given sufficient Evidence to the World, that I have not been wanting, on My Part, in My Endeavours to procure the full Satisfaction of all My Subjects, in the Matters both of Religion and Property. I have not only invited you to those Considerations at our First Meeting; but I have been careful through this whole Session, that no Concern of My own should divert you from them.

"Besides, as I had only designed the Matter of it to be the procuring of good Laws, so, for the gaining of them, I have already waited much longer than I intended; and should have been contented still to have continued My Expectation, had there any Hopes remained of a good Conclusion: But, I must confess, the ill Designs of our Enemies have been too prevalent against those good ones I had proposed to Myself in Behalf of My People; and those unhappy Differences between My Two Houses are grown to such an Height, that I find no possible Means of putting an End to them, but by a Prorogation.

"It is with great Unwillingness that I make Use of this Expedient; having always intended an Adjournment, for the preserving of such Bills as were unfinished: But My Hopes are, that, by this Means the present Occasion of Differences being taken away, you will be so careful hereafter of the Public, as not to seek new ones, nor to revive the old.

"I intend to meet you here again in Winter; and have directed My Lord Keeper to prorogue you till the 13th of October next."

Then the Lord Keeper said,

Parliament prorogued.

"My Lords; and you Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the House of Commons;

"It is His Majesty's Pleasure, that this Parliament be prorogued to the Thirteenth Day of October next; and this Parliament is prorogued to the Thirteenth Day of October next."

Hitherto examined by us, this 11th of June, 1675,
