King present.

His Majesty being come into the Prince's Lodgings; the House was adjourned during Pleasure, to robe themselves.

The House was resumed.

The King, being adorned with His Royal Robes and Regal Crown, ascended His Royal Throne; and then commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to signify to the Commons His Majesty's Pleasure, "That they presently attend Him here."

Who being come, with their Speaker; he made the following Speech:

Speaker of H. C. Speech.

"May it please Your Majesty,

"Your dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, having formerly granted Your Majesty a Supply by Way of a Poll Bill, and having received several Complaints that the same was very partially executed in divers Parts of the Kingdom by those that were appointed to assess it; they have prepared a Bill for the Review thereof, with the Addition of a new Tax upon some Persons that were omitted in the former Act; and have referred the Nomination of the Commissioners to Your Majesty's Princely Wisdom; hoping Your Majesty will give such Orders therein, that the Persons employed in that Service may take a strict Care that every Man may be rated according to his due Proportion.

"They have likewise received Informations of several Actions that have been brought against divers Persons that appeared in Arms to assist Your Majesty in the Defence of their Religion and Liberties, and for what they acted in order to those glorious Ends: And, looking upon this as an Artifice of some ill Men to divide the Minds of Your Majesty's People, they have prepared a Bill to discharge all Suits of that Nature, that thereby Your Majesty's loyal Subjects may be freed from such vexatious Proceedings.

"To these, and such other Bills as have passed both Houses, and are now ready to be presented to Your Majesty, the Commons, in all Duty and Humility, do pray Your Majesty's Royal Assent."

The Speech being ended; the Clerk of the Parliaments received the Bill, intituled, "An Act for Review of the late Poll granted to Their Majesties, and for an additional Poll towards the reducing of Ireland," from the Speaker; and brought it to the Table.

Bills passed.

Then the Clerk of the Crown read the Titles; and the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent, in these Words:

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

In the like Manner the Bills following were passed:

"An Act for preventing vexatious Suits against such as acted in order to the bringing in Their Majesties, or for Their Service."

"An Act for the better Security and Relief of Their Majesties Protestant Subjects of Ireland."

To each of which, the Clerk severally pronounced,

"Le Roy et la Reyne le veulant."

"An Act to discharge the Duke of Norfolke, and the Trustees of Henry late Duke of Norfolke, upon Payment of certain Sums of Money to the Lady Elizabeth Teresa Russell, Wise of Bartholomew Russell. Esquire."

"An Act to enable Charles Bodvile Earl of Radnor to make a Jointure, and to raise a Sum of Money, out of divers Lands and Tenements in the County of Cornwall."

"An Act to enable Thomas Edon Esquire to sell Lands, for Payment of his Debts, and making Provision for his Wife, and Children in case they shall have any."

"An Act to enable William Bateson Esquire to sell Lands in the County of Oxford, and to purchase and settle other Lands in the County of Suffolke."

To each of which the Clerk severally pronounced,

"Soit fait come il est desire."

Then His Majesty spake as follows:

King's Speech.

"My Lords and Gentlemen,

"I am so sensible of the Readiness you have shewed to supply Me with Money for the carrying on the War I am engaged in, that I am glad of this Occasion to give you Thanks for your chearful Dispatch of that Matter, which was absolutely necessary for the common Safety.

"The best Return I can make to your Kindness is, to assure you, that, as far as it will go, it shall all be employed to the Purposes it was given.

"It is a very sensible Affliction to Me, to see My good People burdened with heavy Taxes: But, since the speedy Recovery of Ireland is, in My Opinion, the only Means to case them, and to preserve the Peace and Honour of the Nation, I am resolved to go thither in Person, and, with the Blessing of God Almighty, endeavour to reduce that Kingdom, that it may no longer be a Charge to this.

"And, as I have already ventured My Life for the Preservation of the Religion, Laws, and Liberties of this Nation; so I am now willing again to expose it, to secure you the quiet Enjoyment of them.

"The Spring draws on; and it being requisite I should be early in the Field, I must immediately apply My Thoughts to the giving Orders for the necessary Preparations; which that I may have the more Leisure to do, I have thought convenient now to put an End to this Session."

Then the Speaker, by His Majesty's Command, said,

Parliament prorogued.

"My Lords and Gentlemen,

"It is His Majesty's Pleasure, That this Parliament be prorogued to the Second Day of April next: And this Parliament is prorogued to the Second Day of April next."

Rob'tus Atkins, Miles de Balneo, Capitalis Baro de Scaccario, Orator Procerum, declaravit præsens Parliamentum prorogandum esse usque in diem Mercurii, (videlicet,) 2um diem Aprilis, 1690.

Hitherto examined by us, this 12th Day of April, 1690.
