|EARL of Rutland,
Earl of Totnes,
The Lord Keeper declared a Message from His Majesty, to this Effect: videlicet,
Message from the King, to acquaint the House of His having sent the following Letter to the Speaker of the H. C.
"That His Majesty had observed with what Duty their
Lordships had proceeded towards Him all this Parliament, and of their Care to provide for the Safety
of the Realm; and that He doubted not but their
Lordships had seen the Fruits of their Labours, had
Money been supplied by the Commons; wherefore
he had written a Letter unto the Speaker of the
House of Commons, a Copy whereof He had sent
unto their Lordships, which was read, in hæc verba:
His Majesty's Letter to the Speaker of the Commons.
"Trusty and Well-beloved, We greet you well;
Our House of Commons cannot forget how often
and how earnestly We have called upon them, for
the speeding of that Aid, which they intended unto
Us, for Our great and weighty Affairs, concerning
the Safety and Honour of Us and Our Kingdoms;
and now, the Time being so far spent, that, unless
it be presently concluded, it can neither bring Us
Money nor Credit by the Time which themselves
have prefixed, which is the last of this Month; and,
being further deferred, would be of little Use; We
being daily advertised from all Parts of the great
Preparations of the Enemy, ready to assail Us; We
hold it necessary, by these Our Letters, to give them
Our last and final Admonition; and to let them
know that We shall account all further Delays and
Excuses to be express Denials. And therefore We
will and require you to signify unto them, that We
do expect that they forthwith bring forth their Bill
of Subsidy, to be passed without Delay or Condition,
so as it may fully pass that House by the End of the
next Week at the furthest; which if they do not,
it will force Us to take other Resolutions. But les
them know that, if they finish this according to
Our Desire, That We are resolved to let them sit together for the Dispatch of their other Affairs, and,
after their Recess, to bring them together again the
next Winter. And if, by their Denial or Delay,
any Thing of ill Consequence shall fall out, either
at Home or Abroad, We may call God and Man
to Witness, that We have done Our Part to prevent
it, by calling Our People together to advise with Us,
by opening the Weight of Our Occasions unto them,
and by requiring their timely Help and Assistance in
those Actions wherein we stand engaged by their own
Counsels. And We will and command you that this
Letter be publicly read in the House."
