The Question was put, "Whether this Bill shall pass?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir Richard Holford and Mr. Pitt:

To acquaint them, that the Lords have agreed to the said Bill, without any Amendment.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, to robe.

The House was resumed.

Queen present.

Her Majesty, being seated on Her Royal Throne, adorned with Her Crown and Regal Ornaments, attended with Her Officers of State (the Peers being in their Robes), commanded the Deputy Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to let the Commons know, "It is Her Majesty's Pleasure, that they attend Her presently, in the House of Peers."

Who being come, with their Speaker; he, after a short Speech to Her Majesty, delivered the Lottery Bill to the Clerk of the Parliaments; who brought it to the Table, where the Clerk of the Crown read the Title thereof, as follows; (videlicet),

"An Act for continuing Part of the Duties upon Coals, Culm, and Cinders, and granting new Duties upon Houses having Twenty Windows or more, to raise the Sum of Fifteen Hundred Thousand Pounds, by Way of a Lottery, for the Service of the Year One Thousand Seven Hundred and Ten."

Bill passed.

To this Bill the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent, in these Words; (videlicet,)

"La Raine remercie ses bon Subjects, accepte leur Benevolence, et ainsi le veult."

Then Her Majesty was pleased to withdraw; and the Commons returned to their House.
