The Lord Chancellor 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 sign a Commission, under Her Great Seal of Great Britain; and has thereby given Her Royal Assent to divers Bills therein mentioned, which have passed both Houses; and, by the said Commission, hath commanded us, in Her Absence, to declare and notify to you the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons Her Royal Assent to the said several Bills, in this House, in the Presence of you the Lords and Commons assembled for that Purpose: Which Commission we desire may be read."

and for applying the Surplus (if any) of the Money raised for such Purpose, towards Payment of his own proper Debts:" 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 Well-beloved Counsellor Simon Lord Harcourt Our Chancellor of Great Britain to seal these Our Letters Patents with Our Great Seal of Great Britain;

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.
