Address reported:

The Duke of Bolton reported from the Lords Committees appointed to draw an Address, to be presented to His Majesty, pursuant to an Order of this House Yesterday, "That they had drawn an Address accordingly, as follows; (videlicet,)

"Most Gracious Sovereign,

"We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, beg Leave to present to Your Majesty our most humble and hearty Thanks, for Your Majesty's most Gracious Speech to Your Houses of Parliament; and to assure Your Majesty, that, although we met together with Hearts deeply sensible of the Goodness of Divine Providence to us, in bringing Your Majesty with Safety, and at so critical a Juncture, to the Throne of Your Ancestors, yet we could not but become still more affected with that inestimable Blessing, when we heard so very affectionate Expressions from Your Majesty towards Your People; so clear and full Assurances, from a Prince of such known Honour and Justice, that the established Constitution in Church and State shall be the Rule of Your Government; and so just and tender a Concern for our not having obtained those Advantages by the Peace, which would have been but a suitable Conclusion to so glorious and successful a War; nor as yet a due Execution of some Conditions, even of that Peace, essential to the Security and Trade of this Kingdom.

"We are affected with Wonder, as well as with a just Resentment, that a Pretender to Your Majesty's Crown should be yet permitted to reside so near Your Dominions; especially after his public boasting of an Assistance he expects here, and his avowing a Design to invade this Your Majesty's Kingdom.

"We are but too sensible that our Trade is rendered impracticable in the most valuable Branches of it, and of the ill Effects that must have upon our Manufactures and Navigation: But Your Majesty may be assured, nothing shall be wanting on our Part, that may any Way conduce to the retrieving it.

"These and other Difficulties Your Majesty hath met with on Your Accession to the Crown (and which, we must observe, in Justice to Your Wisdom and Foresight, would have been prevented had Your Opinion been followed), we must confess, are very great and discouraging: However, we do not doubt but that Your Majesty, assisted by this Parliament, zealous for Your Government, and the Safety and Honour of their Country, may be able to take such further Measures, as will secure what is due to us by Treaties, ease our Debts, preserve the Public Credit, restore our Trade, extinguish the very Hopes of the Pretender, and recover the Reputation of this Kingdom in Foreign Parts; the Loss of which, we hope to convince the World by our Actions, is by no Means to be imputed to the Nation in general.

"And these good Ends cannot fail of being obtained, by Your Majesty's pursuing with Steadiness, as You have begun, the true Interest of this Your obedient and affectionate People: And Your Majesty may, by God's Blessing, depend that, in Conjunction with so loyal a Parliament, You will be able to lay Foundations that can never be moved, not only of the Security and Glory, but even of the Ease and Tranquillity of Your Government, and that of Your Majesty's Posterity; for which we offer up our most ardent Prayers, that it may for ever continue to reign after Your Majesty on the Throne of these Kingdoms, and in the Hearts of a People truly happy, and fully sensible of their being so."

Then the same was read by the Clerk entire.

And the Three first Paragraphs, being again read, were severally agreed to by the House.

Then the Fourth Paragraph being read;

Motion for omitting Words in it.

It was moved, "That at the Close thereof these Words be left out; (videlicet,) ["And recover the Reputation of this Kingdom in Foreign Parts; the Loss of which, we hope to convince the World by our Actions, is by no Means to be imputed to the Nation in general."]

After Debate;

The Question was put, "Whether those Words shall stand Part of this Address?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Ordered, That this be the Address to be presented to His Majesty.

Ordered, That the said Address be presented to His Majesty by the whole House.

Ordered, That the Lords with White Staves do wait on His Majesty, humbly to know what Time His Majesty will please to appoint to be attended by this House, with the said Address.

Adjourn.
