All the Money Bills being passed, and the King desirous of
beginning an carly Campaign, he came to the House of Peers,
and closed the Session with the following Speech:
"My Lords and Gentlemen,
"The Proofs you have given of your Affection to me, and
the Zeal you have expressed for the Government, oblige me
to return you Thanks before I put an End to this Session; and,
in particular, to thank you Gentlemen, of the House of Commons, for
the large Supplies you have provided to carry on the War.
"I will endeavour to do my Part; and it is from the Blessing of God that we must all expect such Success as may answer
"The Posture of Affairs making it necessary for me to
be absent for some time out of the Kingdom, I recommend it
to you that in your several Stations you will be careful to preserve
the public Peace."
Then the Lord Keeper, by his Majesty's command, prorogued the Parliament to September 18.]
