Afterwards the Speaker and Commons being come into the House, and at the Bar, the Lord Chancellor declared, That it had pleased His Majesty to ordain His Parliament to be holden and begun on the 5th of April last; and now, for divers great and weighty Considerations known to His Highness, He had thought good to dissolve and finally determine the same; and that, to the same Purpose, His Majesty had been pleased to grant a Commission to certain Lords.
