The King present.

His Majesty being seated on the Throne, adorned with His Crown and Regal Ornaments, and attended by His Officers of State, (the Lords being in their Robes), commanded the Gentleman Usher of the,block Rod to let the Commons know, “It is His Majesty’s Pleasure they attend Him immediately in this House.”

Who being come, with their Speaker;

His Majesty was pleased to speak as follows:

His Majesty’s Speech.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

It gives me much Satisfaction that nothing in the Situation of Our Affairs, either Foreign or Domestick has obliged me to require your Attendance earlier than might have been confident with your private Convenience; and that now you are met together, you will find yourselves at Liberty to give your whole Attention to the Establishment of wise and useful Regulations of Law, and to the Extension of our Commercial Advantages.

The Performance of the Engagement of the King of Spain, in the Restitution of Port Egmont and Falkland’s Island, and the repeated Assurances I have received of the pacific Disposition of that Court, as well as of other Powers, promise to My Subjects the Continuance of Peace; and we may with the greater Confidence hope that we shall not be disturbed in the Enjoyment of this Blessing, as there is no Reason to apprehend that We mail become involved in the Troubles which still unhappily prevail, in One Part of Europe.

The Danger of the farther spreading of the infectious Sickness in Europe, is, I trust, very much abated; but I must recommend it to you not to suffer Our Happiness, in having been hitherto preserved from so dreadful a Calamity, to lessen your Vigilance in the Use of every reasonable Precaution for Our Safety.

Gentlemen of the House of Commons

I have ordered the Estimates for the Service of the Current Year to be laid before you; I make no Doubt but you will see the Propriety of maintaining a respectable Establishment of my Naval Forces. I am pleased however to find that I shall be under no Necessity of asking of you at this Time any extraordinary Aid.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

“The Concerns of this Country are so various and extensive as to require the most vigilant and active Attention, and some of them, as well from Remoteness of Place as from other Circumstances are so peculiarly liable to Abuses and exposed to Danger, that the Interposition of the Legislature for their Protection may become necessary: If in any such Instances, either for supplying Defects or remedying Abuses, you shall find it requisite to provide any new Laws, you may depend upon My ready Concurrence in whatever may best contribute to the Attainment of those salutary Ends.”

Then His Majesty was pleased to retire;

And the Commons withdrew.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, to unrobe.

The House was resumed.
