"That, in regard His Majesty's late Letters and Declarations to both Houses of Parliament do not at all
mention Ireland, or any the Concernments of that
Kingdom, which, by reason of the sad Consequences of the late bloody Rebellion there, hath been
cast into great Disorder and Confusion, and so doth

for proclaiming of His Majesty King of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland, Defender
of the Faith, &c.
"Although it can no Way be doubted but that His
Majesty's Right and Title to His Crowns and Kingdoms is, and was, every Way compleated, by the
Death of His most Royal Father of Glorious Memory, without the Ceremony or Solemnity of a Proclamation: Yet, since Proclamations in such Cases
have been always used, to the End that all good Subjects might upon this Occasion testify their Duty and
Respects; and since the armed Violence and other
the Calamities of these many Years last past have
hitherto deprived us of any such Opportunity, wherein
we might express our Loyalty and Allegiance to His
Majesty: We, therefore, the Lords and Commons
now assembled in Parliament, together with the Lord
Mayor, Aldermen, and Commons of the City of
London, and other Freemen of this Kingdom now present, do, according to our Duty and Allegiance,
heartily, joyfully, and unanimously, acknowledge and
proclaim, That, immediately upon the Decease of
our late Sovereign Lord King Charles, the Imperial
Crown of the Realm of England, and of all the Kingdoms, Dominions, and Rights belonging to the same,
did, by Inheritance, Birthright, and lawful and undoubted Succession, descend and come to His most
Excellent Majesty Charles the Second, as being lineally, justly, and lawfully, next Heir of the Blood
Royal of this Realm; and that, by the Goodness and
Providence of Almighty God, He is of England,
Scotland, France, and Ireland, the most Potent, Mighty,
and Undoubted King, Defender of the Faith, &c.
And thereunto we most humbly and faithfully do submit, and oblige ourselves, our Heirs and Posterities
"Dated the 8th Day of May, 1660."
House adjourned till 9 cras.
