PRAYERS.

D of Devon takes the Oaths.

This Day William Duke of Devonshire, Lord Steward of His Majesty's Household, took the Oaths, and made and subscribed the Declaration, and also took and subscribed the Oath of Abjuration, pursuant to the Statutes; his Grace having first delivered a Certificate of his receiving the Sacrament, and Witnesses were sworn, and examined to the Truth thereof.

Message from the King, to adjourn.

The Lord Chancellor acquainted the House, "That he was commanded by His Majesty, to impart to their Lordships a Message from His Majesty, under His Royal Sign Manual."

And his Lordship read the same, as follows:

"GEORGE R.

"His Majesty understanding that many both of the House of Lords and Commons are detained in the Country, as well by their private as the public Business; and the Holy-days being so near (during which there is usually a Recess); it is His Majesty's Pleasure, that the Parliament adjourn to Monday the Ninth Day of January next; at which Time His Majesty intends the Parliament shall fit to do Business."

Accordingly,

Adjourn.

Dominus Cancellarius declaravit præsens Parliamentum continuandum esse usque ad et in diem Lunæ, nonum diem Januarii jam prox. sequen, hora undecima Auroræ, Dominis sic decernentibus.

Examined by us,

Stamford.
Clarendon.
Warrington.
Foley.
