King presents:

His Majesty, being seated on His Throne, adorned with His Crown and Regal Ornaments, and attended with His Officers of State; the Prince of Wales, in his Robes, sitting in his Place on His Majesty's Right Hand (the Lords being also in their Robes); commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to let the Commons know, "It is His Majesty's Pleasure, that they attend Him immediately, in this House."

Who being come, with their Speaker;

His Majesty spake as follows:

Mis Majesty's Speech.

"My Lords, and Gentlemen,

"It is a great Satisfaction to Me, that the present Situation of Affairs, both at Home and Abroad, makes it unnecessary for Me to lay before you any other Reasons for My calling you together at this Time, but the ordinary Dispatch of the public Business, and that I may have an Opportunity of receiving your Advice upon such Affairs as may occur to you, and shall require the Care and Consideration of Parliament.

"Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

"I will order the proper Officers to lay before you the Estimates for the Service of the current Year; and I make no Doubt but that you will, with the same Chearfulness as I have always experienced in you, effectually raise such Supplies as you shall judge necessary for the Honour, Safety, and Defence, of the Kingdom; and I cannot but recommend it to you, as a Consideration worthy the Commons of Great Britain, that, in all your Deliberations, as well upon raising the Annual Supplies, as the Distribution of the Public Revenues, you pursue such Measures as will most conduce to the present and future Ease of those you represent.

"My Lords, and Gentlemen,

"You must be sensible that it is very desirable to give all possible Dispatch to the public Business; and that nothing can give more Weight and Credit to all your Resolutions, than to avoid unreasonable Heats and Animosities; and not to suffer yourselves to be diverted, by any specious Pretences, from stedfastly pursuing the true Interest of your Country. Let that be your First and principal Care; and the People will be sensible of the Benefits they shall receive from your Wisdom and Resolution, in preferring their Ease, and the public Good, to all other Considerations."

The Speech being ended; His Majesty was pleased to withdraw, and the Commons returned to their House.

"Most Gracious Sovereign,

"We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, do, in all Humility, return the Thanks of this House, for Your Majesty's most Gracious Speech from the Throne.

"It is owing to the happy Success of Your Majesty's Counsels and Negotiations, that Your Majesty now assembles Your Parliament for no other Reasons but the ordinary Dispatch of the public Business. And Your Majesty being graciously pleased to express such great Satisfaction in giving us an Opportunity of humbly offering our Advice to the Throne, upon such Affairs as shall require the Care and Consideration of Parliament; we think it incumbent on us, in Return, to consider that Part of our Duty to be the highest Honour and Privilege of this House; which, as we have always enjoyed, so we beg Leave to assure Your Majesty, we will never abuse.

"We will use our utmost Endeavours to proceed in such Manner, in the speedy Execution of the great Trust reposed in us, that the People may be fully sensible that no unreasonable Heats or Animosities shall delay or interrupt our Deliberations; and that the true Interest of our Country, the present and future Ease of our Fellow Subjects, and the public Good of Great Britain, shall outweigh all other Considerations, though covered by any specious Pretences whatsoever. Upon these Foundations, we may be confident that our Resolutions will be agreeable to Your Majesty, by being beneficial to the whole Nation."
