Address concerning the Reports of the Church of England being in Danger:

The Duke of Somerset reported from the Committee, the Address drawn by them, relating to the Church of England.

Which was read; and, after some Amendments made thereto, was agreed to by the House, and is as follows; (videlicet,)

"We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, having taken into Consideration Your Majesty's most Gracious Speech at the Opening of this Parliament, have, upon mature Deliberation, come to the following Resolution:

"Resolved, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons in Parliament assembled, That the Church of England, as by Law established, which was rescued from the extremest Danger by King William the Third, of Glorious Memory, is now, by God's Blessing, under the happy Reign of Her Majesty, in a most safe and flourishing Condition; and that whoever goes about to suggest and insinuate, that the Church is in Danger under Her Majesty's Administration, is an Enemy to the Queen, the Church, and the Kingdom.

"Which we humbly beg Leave to lay before Your Majesty: And as Your Majesty has been pleased to express a just Indignation against all such wicked Persons; so we assure Your Majesty, that we shall be always ready, to the utmost of out Power, to assist Your Majesty in discountenancing and defeating their Practices. And we humbly beseech Your Majesty, to take effectual Measures for the making the said Resolution public; and also for punishing the Authors and Spreaders of these seditious and scandalous Reports; to the End that all others may, for the future, be deterred from endeavouring to distract the Kingdom with such unreasonable and groundless Distrusts and Jealousies."

Ordered, That the said Address be delivered to the Commons, at a Conference, for their Concurrence.
