The Lord Keeper acquainted the House, "That Her Majesty had been pleased to grant a Commission to the Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, and other Lords, for declaring Her Royal Assent to several Acts therein mentioned."

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, to robe.

The House was resumed.

Then Five of the Lords Commissioners, in their Robes, being seated on a Form placed between the Throne and the Woolsack; the Lord Keeper in the Middle; the Lord President and Lord Chamberlain on his Right Hand; and the Lord Steward and Duke of Ormonde on his Left; commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to go to the House of Commons, and desire their Attendance, presently, in the House of Peers.

Who being come, with their Speaker;

The Lord Keeper said,

"My Lords, and Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

"Her Majesty, not thinking fit to be Personally present here at this Time, has been pleased to cause Her Letters Patents to be issued under Her Great Seal, and hath thereby given Her Royal Assent to several Acts therein mentioned, which have passed both Houses; and, by Her said Letters Patents, hath commanded us, in Her Absence, to declare and notify Her Royal Assent to the said Acts in this House, in the Presence of you the Lords and Commons here to be assembled for that Purpose; which Letters Patents we desire may be read."

And the same was accordingly read, by the Clerk, as follows; (videlicet,)

"ANNE R.

"Anne, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, Queen, Defender of the Faith, &c. To Our Right Trusty and Right Well-beloved the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and to Our Trusty and Well-beloved the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses, and the Commissioners for Shires and Boroughs, of the House of Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, Greeting. Whereas We have seen, and perfectly understood, divers and sundry Acts, agreed and accorded on by you Our Loving Subjects the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and the Commons in this Our present Parliament assembled, and endorsed by you, as hath been accustomed, the Titles and Names of which Acts hereafter do particularly ensue;

and for making further Purchases, for the Use of the said County, with the Public Stock thereof; and also for regulating and better Employment of the Public Stock of the said County:" "An Act to vest the Manor, or reputed Manor, of Wadborough, alias Wadberrow, in the County of Worcester, and other Lands there, which came to the Right Honourable Other Earl of Plimouth by his Mother, in Trustees, to be sold, for raising more Money to pay off Debts charged upon his Paternal Estate, and for other Purposes:" And albeit the said Acts by you Our said Subjects the Lords and Commons in this Our present Parliament assembled are fully agreed and consented unto; yet nevertheless the same are not of Force and Effect in the Law, without Our Royal Assent given and put to the said Acts: And forasmuch as, for divers great and urgent Causes and Considerations, We cannot conveniently at this present be Personally, in Our Royal Person, in the Higher House of Our said Parliament, being the Place accustomed to give Our Royal Assent to such Acts as have been agreed upon by you Our said Subjects the Lords and Commons, We have therefore caused these Our Letters Patents to be made, and have signed the same; and, by the same, do give and put Our Royal Assent to the said Acts, and to all Articles, Clauses, and Provisions, therein contained; and have fully agreed and assented to the said Acts; willing, that the said Acts, and every Article, Clause, Sentence, and Provision, therein contained, from henceforth, shall be of the same Strength, Force, and Effect, as if We had been Personally present in the said Higher House, and had openly and publicly, in the Presence of you all, assented to the same: And We do, by these Presents, declare and notify the same Our Royal Assent, as well to you the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons aforesaid, as to all others whom it may concern; commanding also, by these Presents, Our Right Trusty and Wellbeloved Counsellor Sir Simon Harcourt Knight, Keeper of Our Great Seal of Great Britain, to seal these Our Letters Patents with Our Great Seal of Great Britain; and also commanding the Most Reverend Father in God and Our Right Trusty and Well-beloved Counsellor Thomas Lord Archbishop of Canterbury Primate and Metropolitan of all England, Our said Keeper of Our Great Seal of Great Britain, Our Right Trusty and Right Well-beloved Cousin and Counsellor Lawrence Earl of Rochester Our President of Our Council, Our Right Trusty and Right Entirely Well-beloved Cousins and Counsellors John Duke of Newcastle Our Keeper of Our Privy Seal, John Duke of the County of Buckingham and of Normanby Our Steward of Our Household, Charles Duke of Shrewsbury Our Chamberlain of Our Household, Charles Duke of Somerset Our Master of Our Horse, James Duke of Ormonde Lieutenant of Our Kingdom of Ireland, John Duke of Marlborough, James Duke of Queensberry and Dover Our Principal Secretary of State, Our Right Trusty and Right Well-beloved Cousin and Counsellor John Earl Poulet First Commissioner of Our Treasury of Great Britain, and Our Right Trusty and Well-beloved Counsellor William Lord Dartmouth One of Our Principal Secretaries of State, or any Three or more of them, to declare and notify this Our Royal Assent, in Our Absence in the said Higher House, in the Presence of you the said Lords and the Commons of Our Parliament, there to be assembled for that Purpose; and the Clerk of Our Parliaments to endorse the said Acts with such Terms and Words, in Our Name, as is requisite, and hath been accustomed for the same; and also to enrol these Our Letters Patents and the said Acts in the Parliament Roll; and these Our Letters Patents shall be to every of them a sufficient Warrant in that Behalf: And finally We do declare and will, that, after this Our Royal Assent given and passed by these Presents, and declared and notified as is aforesaid, that then and immediately the said Acts shall be taken, accepted, and admitted, good, sufficient, and perfect Acts of Parliament and Laws, to all Intents, Constructions, and Purposes, and to be put in due Execution accordingly; the Continuance or Dissolution of this Our Parliament, or any other Use, Custom, Thing, or Things, to the contrary thereof, notwithstanding. In Witness whereof, We have caused these Our Letters to be made Patents.

"Witness Ourself, at Westminster, the Seventeenth Day of March, in the Tenth Year of Our Reign.

"Per ipsam Reginam, propria Manu signat.

"Wrighte."

Then the Lord Keeper said,

"In Obedience to Her Majesty's Commands, and by virtue of the Commission which has been now read, we, Five of the Commissioners therein named, do declare and notify to you, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons in Parliament assembled, That Her Majesty has given Her Royal Assent to the said Acts in the Commission mentioned; and the Clerks are required to pass the same, in the usual Form and Words."

Then the Clerk of the Parliaments received the Bank Bill from the Hands of the Speaker, and brought it to the Table; where the Clerk of the Crown read the Title of that and the other Bills to be passed, as follows; (videlicet,)

Bills passed.

"1. An Act for enabling and obliging the Bank of England, for the Time therein mentioned, to exchange all Exchequer Bills for ready Money, upon Demand; and to disable any Person to be Governor, Deputygovernor, or Director, of the Bank of England, and a Director of the East-India Company, at the same Time."
