"Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

"I must thank you, in particular, for your having so fully complied with your Assurances to Me, at the Opening of this Parliament, that you would give all possible Dispatch to the Public Supplies. There is scarce any Instance to be given, where so great, and, I hope, effectual, Supplies have been perfected in so short a Time.

"I look upon this to proceed, not only from your great Zeal for the Public Service, but from a just Impression upon your own Minds, that there is a Necessity of making extraordinary Efforts, to support and encourage our Allies, and to be early in endeavouring to disappoint the Designs of our Enemies.

"My Lords, and Gentlemen,

"It will be convenient to make a Recess in some short Time: I hope, therefore, you will continue to give all necessary Dispatch to what may yet remain unfinished of the Public Business before you."
