PRAYERS.

Bills passed by Commission.

The Lord Chancellor acquainted the House, "That Her Majesty had been pleased to grant a Commission, under the Great Seal of Great Britain, to several Lords therein named, for declaring Her Royal Assent to several Acts agreed upon by both Houses."

The House was adjourned during Pleasure.

The House was resumed.

Then Three of the Lords Commissioners (in their Robes) being seated on a Form placed between the Throne and the Woolsack; the Lord Chancellor in the Middle; and the Duke of Ormonde on his Right Hand; and the Lord Steward on his Left; commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to let the Commons know, "That the Commissioners desire their immediate Attendance in the House of Peers, to hear the Commission read."

Who being come, with their Speaker;

The Lord Chancellor said,

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

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

And the same was read, by the Clerk, as follows;

"ANNE R.

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; (that is to say,) "An Act for granting to Her Majesty Duties upon Malt, Mum, Cyder, and Perry, for the Service of the Year One Thousand Seven Hundred and Thirteen; and for making forth Duplicates of Lottery Tickets lost, burnt, or destroyed; and for enlarging the Time for adjusting Claims in several Lottery Acts; and to punish the counterfeiting or forging of Lottery Orders; and for explaining a late Act in relation to Stamp Duties on Customary Estates which pass by Deed and Copy:"

In Witness whereof, We have caused these Our Letters to be made Patents.

"Witness Ourself, at Westminster, the Tenth Day of June, in the Twelfth Year of Our Reign.

"Per ipsam Reginam, propria Manu signat.

"Wrighte."

Then the Lord Chancellor said,
