King's Answer to the Thanks of the Houses, for issuing His Proclaniation against Conventicles.
The Chief Justice reported, "That he had presented
the Thanks of both Houses to His Majesty, as he was
directed on Saturday last. And His Majesty returned
this Answer following:
"My Lords and Gentlemen,
"I thank you for this Mark of your Affection to Me;
and I doubt not of the Continuance and Concurrence
of it in other Matters, as well as in this of My Proclamation. I recommend to you, that you would
weigh well what I say and desire in it towards the
Welfare and Peace of this Nation; in order to which,
as I shall always be ready to contribute My utmost
Endeavours, so I hope you will never be failing in
yours to enable Me to do it."
