“And also, to communicate to their Lordships the Papers referred to in the said Address.”

Address to His Majesty on the Subjest.

The said Address is as follows:

Most Gracious Sovereign,

We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and faithful Subjects, the Commons of Great Britain, in Parliament assembled, having taken into Consideration the Address lately presented to Your Majesty, under the Title of The humble Address, Remonstrance, and Petition of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Livery of the City of London, in Common Hall assembled, together with the Answer which Your Majesty was pleased to make to the same, think ourselves indis pensably obliged upon this Occasion to express to Your Majesty the extreme Concern and Indignation which we feel, at finding that an Application has been made to Your Majesty in Terms so little corresponding with that grateful and affectionate Respect which Your Majesty is so justly entitled to from all Your Subjects; at the same Time aspersing and calumniating One of the Branches of the Legislature, and expressly denying the Legality of the present Parliament, and the Validity of its Proceedings.

To present Petitions to the Throne has at all Times been the undoubted Right of the Subjects of this Realm: The free Enjoyment of that Right was One of the many Blessings restored by the Revolution, and continued to us in its fulled Extent under the Princes of Your Majesty's Illustrious. House; and as we are duly sensible of its Value and Importance, it is with the deepest Concern that we now fee the Exercise of it so grossly perverted by being applied to the Purpose not of preserving, but of overturning the Constitution, and of propagating Doctrines which, if generally adopted, must be fatal to the Peace of the Kingdom, and which tend to the Subversion of all lawful Authority.

Your Majesty, we acknowledge with Gratitude, has ever shewn the most tender Regard to the Rights of Your People, not only in the Exercise of Your own Power, but in Your Care to preserve from every Degree of Infringement or Violation the Powers intrusted to others. And we beg Leave to return Your Majesty our unfeigned Thanks for the fresh Proof You have now given us of Your Determination to persevere in Your Adherence to the Principles of the Constitution.

“Permit us also to assure Your Majesty, that it is with the highest Satisfaction we fee Your Majesty expressing so just a Confidence in Your People; in whatever unjustifiable Excesses some few misguided Persons may, in this Instance, have been seduced to join, Your Majesty's Subjects in general are too sensible of what they owe both to Your Majesty and to Your illustrious Family, ever to be capable of approaching Your Majesty with any other Sentiments than those of the most entire Respect and Affection; and they understand too well their own true Interests to with to loosen the Bands of Obedience to the Laws and of due Subordination to lawful Authority; we are therefore fully persuaded that Your Majesty's People, as well as Your Parliament will reject with Disdain every insidious Suggestion of those ill-designing Men, who are, in Reality, under mining the Public Liberty under the specious Pretence of Zeal for its Preservation; and that Your Majesty's Attention to maintain the liberties of Your Subjects unviolated, which You esteem Your Chief Glory, will, upon every Occasion, prove the sure Means of Strength to Your Majesty, and secure to You that zealous and effectual Support which none but a free People can bestow.”

The Papers referred to in the said Address being also ead:

It was moved, “To agree with the Commons in the said Address, by filling up the Blank with [“ Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and “].”

Motion to adjourn.

Which being objected to: It was moved, “To adjourn.”

Sutherland Claim of Peerage; Hearing put off to the next Session.

A Petition of his Grace John Duke of Athol, Charles Earl of Elgin and Kincardin, the Honourable James Wemyss of Wemyss, Sir David Dalrymple of Haifa Baronet, Sir Adam Fergusontof Kilkerran Baronet, Alexander Boswell of Auchinleck Esquire, and John Mackenzie of Delvim Esquire, Guardians to Elizabeth claiming the Title and Dignity of Countess of Sutherland, was presented and read; setting forth, “That when the Question concerning the Peerage of Sutherland first came before their Lordships, each of the Parties presented a Case to their Lordships; in those Cases it was understood that they had stated all the Fads and all the Arguments upon which they rested their respective Pretensions: That the Petitioners, in the Case of their Pupil, stated, as distinctly and briefly as they could, the Facts and Arguments which, in their Apprehension, supported her Right to the Dignity of Sutherland; the Cases given in for the other Parties contained sundry Positions exceedingly erroneous in Fact as well as in Law, but the Petitioners did not chuse to trouble their Lordships with an additional Case on their Part; they were confident that the Refutation of those erroneous Positions would be found in their own original Case: That upon the 26th of February last, a Petition was presented to their Lordships by Sir Robert Gordon, praying Liberty, “To be allowed to give in an additional Case;” that their Lordships did accordingly allow him to give in such an additional Case on or before the 12th of March, andexpressly appointed him to communicate this Case to the Petitioners Solicitor on the 3d of March, the other Claimants were at the same Time allowed to give in additional Cases: That Sir Robert Gordon, disregarding this Appointment, did not communicate his Case till the 6th of March; that it was immediately transmitted to the Petitioners in Scotland, and came to their Hands upon the Evening of the 10th of March: That upon Inspection, it appears greatly to exceed in Size all the Cases formerly given in for all the Parties together; such is the excessive Bulk of this Paper“, and so great the Multiplicity of Writings referred to in it, that the Petitioners have not had Time attentively to, examine it far less to make such Researches into the Records as are necessary, either to ascertain the Existence and Tenor of the Writings therein referred, to, or to enable them to explain such of them as might be understood, to support the Propositions of their Adversary: Thus much, however, they have observed, that Sir Robert Gordon, not satisfied with enforcing the Positions in his original Case, has taken up Ground entirely new, and has presumed to make many Assertions, in Point of Fact, which the Petitioners are confident they will be able fully to refute; in particular, Sir Robert Gordon has averred, that Alexander Sutherland, Bastard Brother of Elizabeth Wife of Adam Gordon, was the legitimate Son of John Earl of Sutherland, although this was not pretended in his original Case, and although it had been expressly admitted in the Case of the other Claimant, Mr. Sutherland, that Alexander was a Bastard; the Petitioners have remarked in their Case, that there was no Example in Scotland of a Peerage created during a Regency; this Sir Robert controverts, and has inserted a long Lift of Examples of such Creations; these Examples the Petitioners have not had Time fully to examine, but from the Examination which they have made, they hope to be able to shew, to their Lordships Conviction, that the Instances given by Sir Robert, if not intentionally mistaken, are grossly erroneous: These few Particulars the Petitioners mention as Examples of the many palpable Mistakes or Misrepresentations, in Point of Fact, which occur in this additional Case; the Instances of Charters and other Writings mistated and misapplied will be found exceedingly numerous; to make a full Detection of those Errors must be a Work of Time and Labour, and careful Research into the Records of Scotland: Such being the Case, the Petitioners, from that Duty which, they owe to their Pupil, are under the absolute Necessity of making this Application to their Lordships; they implore the Justice of their Lordships, that they may be allowed such farther Time as is unavoidably requisite to enable them to make the proper Researches into the Records, and to enquire into the true State of those Facts which are now for the first Time stated in a Case calculated, as its Title bears, to correct the Inaccuracies of the original one; the Petitioners could not obviate Authorities which they never saw, nor Answer Arguments in Fact before they were urged: The Petitioners are persuaded, from the well known Justice of their Lordships, that they will never lay them under the Necessity of coming to the Bar with the unspeakable Disadvantage of being called to enter upon a Disquisition concerning Records which they had no Time to examine, and to Answer Arguments industriously withheld until the very Moment of Decision; their Lordships know, that this Question, so important to an Orphan, depends upon the antient Usage of the Kingdom of Scotland, and in that Light has been considered by Sir Robert Gordon himself: As, therefore, this is a Question of Evidence, it is, with all humble Deference, apprehended, that their Lordships will not, before the Facts are ascertained, pronounce their Judgement, which is unalterable;” and therefore praying, “Their Lordships will be pleased to take the above Petition into their Consideration, and allow the Petitioners such further Time for enquiring into the new Facts stated by Sir Robert Gordon, as to their Lordships shall seem meet.”

And thereupon the Agents for all the Claimants were called in, and heard at the Bar:

And being withdrawn:

Ordered, That the Hearing of the several Claims of the Peerage of Sutherland be put off till the next Session.
