Speaker of H. C. Speech.

"May it please Your Majesty,

Your dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, having a just Regard to their former Resolution of granting to Your Majesty the Sum of Fourteen Hundred Thousand Pounds, upon their Lands, for the Service of this present Year; and finding, by the best Estimates they could make, that the Two Shillings in the Pound which they have already given would not amount to that Sum, they have unanimously agreed to lay an additional Tax of Twelve Pence in the Pound more, which they hope will sufficiently supply what the other may fall short to raise.

"They have likewise agreed to transfer the Duties which are now charged upon Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate, by Way of Excise, to be made payable at the Custom-house; and this they have done out of a Prospect, that this Exchange will very much conduce to the Improvement of Your Majesty's Revenue.

"These Two Bills I am commanded to present to Your Majesty; and humbly to desire Your Majesty's Gracious Acceptance, and that Your Majesty would be pleased to give them the Royal Assent."

The Speech being ended; the Clerk of the Parliaments received Two Bills from the Speaker, who brought them to the Table.

Bills passed.

The one was intituled, "An Act for the charging and collecting the Duties of Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate, at the Custom-house."

The other, "An Act for a Grant to Their Majesties of an Aid of Twelve Pence in the Pound, for a Year."

The Clerk of the Crown read the Titles.

And the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent, in these Words,

"Le Roy & la Reyne, remerciant leur loyalls Subjects, & acceptant leur Benevolence, et ainsi le veulant."

Next, His Majesty was pleased to pass a Private Bill, intituled, "An Act for providing Maintenances for the "Children of Sydney Wortley, alias Montagu, Esquire, during his Wife's Life, in case she survive him."

To which the Royal Assent was pronounced in these Words,

"Soit fait come il est desire."

This being done, His Majesty was pleased to withdraw Himself.

And the House was resumed.
