Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for granting an Aid to Her Majesty, to be raised by a Land Tax in Great Britain, for the Service of the Year One Thousand Seven Hundred and Ten."

The Question was put, "Whether this Bill shall pass?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Message to H. C. that the Lords agree to it.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir Rich'd Holford and Mr. Grey:

To acquaint them, that this House hath agreed to the said Bill, without any Amendment.

Message from thence, to return Sir Edw. Smyth's Bill.

A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Mr. Conyers and others:

To return the Bill, intituled, "An Act to enable Peyton Altham, an Infant Trustee, to join in suffering a Common Recovery, or levying a Fine, of an Estate in Essex, as if he were of full Age;" and to acquaint this House, that they have agreed to the same, without any Amendment.

Then the House was adjourned during Pleasure, to robe.

The House was resumed.

Queen present:

Her Majesty, being seated on Her Royal Throne, adorned with Her Crown and Regal Ornaments, attended with Her Officers of State (the Peers being in their Robes), commanded the Deputy Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to let the Commons know, "It is Her Majesty's Pleasure, that they attend Her presently, in the House of Peers."

Who being come, with their Speaker; he, after a short Speech to Her Majesty, delivered the Land Tax Bill to the Clerk of the Parliaments, who brought it to the Table; where the Clerk of the Crown read the Title of that and the other Two Bills to be passed, as follows; (videlicet,)

Bills passed.

"1. An Act for granting an Aid to Her Majesty, to be raised by a Land Tax in Great Britain, for the Service of the Year One Thousand Seven Hundred and Ten."

To this Bill the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent, in these Words; (videlicet,)

"La Raine remercie ses bon Subjects, accepte leur Benevolence, et ainsi le veult."

"2. An Act to prohibit the Exportation of Corn, Malt, Meal, Flour, Bread, Biscuit, and Starch; and Low Wines, Spirits, Worts, and Wash, drawn from Malted Corn."

To this Bill the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent, in these Words; (videlicet,)

"La Raine le veult."

"3. An Act to enable Peyton Altham, an Infant Trustee, to join in suffering a Common Recovery, or levying a Fine, of an Estate in Essex, as if he were of full Age."

To this Bill the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent, in these Words; (videlicet,)

"Soit fait come il est desiré."

Then Her Majesty was pleased to withdraw; and the Commons returned to their House.
