The Lord Chancellor acquainted the House, "That Her Majesty had been pleased to order a Commission to be issued under the Great Seal, for declaring Her Royal Assent to several Acts therein mentioned."

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 Lord Privy Seal on his Right Hand; and the Lord Viscount Bolingbroke 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 here at this Time, has been pleased to order Letters Patents to be issued under the Great Seal, directed to us and other Lords who are named in the said Letters Patents; thereby commanding us, in the Presence of you the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and Commons of Great Britain, here to be assembled for that Purpose, to declare and notify, in Her Majesty's Absence, Her Royal Assent to several Acts agreed upon by both Houses."

Which Letters Patents you will hear read.

And the same were read, by the Clerk, as follows:

"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 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 Grcat 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;
