E. of Thanet introduced.
Hodie Nicholas Lord Tufton, Earl of Thanett (created
per Chartam datam 5 Augusti, Anno Quarto Caroli
Regis, 1628), was brought into the House, in his Parliament Robe, and placed next below the Earl of (fn. *) .
His Majesty's Speech to both Houses of Parliament,
in the Banqueting House at Whitehall, on Saturday, the
24th of this January, in the Afternoon, and reported
this Day by the Lord Keeper :
King s Speech.
"The Care I have to remove all Obstacles that may
hinder the good Correspondency between Me and this
Parliament, is the Cause I have called you together
at this Time, the particular Occasion being a Complaint made in the Lower House; and for you, My
Lords, I am glad to take this and all other Occasions,
whereby you may clearly understand both My Words
and Actions; for, as you are nearest in Degree, so
you are the fittest Witnesses unto Kings.
"The Complaint I speak of is, for staying Mens
Goods that denied Tonnage and Poundage; this may
have an easy and short Conclusion, if My Words and
Actions be rightly understood; for, by passing the
Bill as My Ancestors have had it, My by past Actions
will be included, and My future Proceedings authorized, which certainly would not have been stuck on,
if Men had not imagined that I have taken these Duties as pertaining to My Hereditary Prerogative, in
which they are much deceived; for it ever was, and
still is, My Meaning, by the Gift of My People to
enjoy it. And My Intention, in My Speech at the
Ending of the last Session concerning this Point, was
not to challenge Tonnage and Poundage as of Right,
but de bene esse; shewing you the Necessity, not the
Right, by which I was to take it until you had granted
it to Me; assuring Myself, according to your general
Professions, you wanted Time, not Wills, to give
"Wherefore, now having Opportunity, I expect
that, without Loss of Time, you make good your
Professions, and so, by passing of a Bill, to put an
End to all the Questions arising from this Subject,
especially since I have cleared the only Scruple that
can trouble you in this Business. To conclude, let
us not be jealous one of the other's Actions; for, if
I had been easily moved at every Occasion, the Order
you made on Wednesday last might have made me
startle, there being some Shew to suspect, that you
had given yourselves the Liberty to be the Inquisitors
after Complaints (the Words of your Order being
somewhat too largely penned); but, looking into
your Actions, I find you only hear Complainers, not
seek Complaints; for I am certain you neither pretend not desire the Liberty to be Inquisitors of Mens
Actions before particular Complaint be made.
"This I have spoken, to shew you how slow I am
to believe hushly of your Proceedings; likewise to
assure You, that the House's Resolutions, not particular Mens Speeches, shall make Me Judge well or
ill; not doubting but, according to My Example,
you will be deaf to ill Reports concerning Me, till
My Words and Actions speak for themselves; that
so, this Session beginning with Confidence one towards
another, it may end with a perfect Good understand
ing between us, which God grant".
House to be called.
The House is to be called on Thursday, the Fifth of
