" GEN TLEMEN* OF THE 30USE OF COMMONS,

" I thank you for the readiness with which yon have granted the SupDÜes. The Estimates laid before you «'ere somewhat lower than those of former vears, aWiough tl;ev inc'.uded several extraordmary charges, which wi'U not again occur. The same coureof economy «lil stillbe steadilv pursued.' The continued increase of the revenue. notwithstanding the repeal of so many taxes, affords the surest proof that the resources of the country are unimpaired, and justifies the expectation that a perseveiance in judicious and well-considered measures will still further promote the industry and auginent the wealth of rcv people.

" MY LORDS AXD OENTLEMEN,

" It gives me great gratification to believe, that in refuming to your several connties, vou will find a prevalence of general tranquillity and of active industrv amongst cil classes of society. I humbly hope that Divine Providence wit] vouchsafe a continuance and mcrease ot these blessincrs, and. in anv circumstances which may arise, I shall relv with confidence upon your zeal and fidelity. And I rest satisfied that vou will inculcate and enc-ourage that obedience to the laws, and that observance of the duties of reiigion and morality, which are the only &3cure foundations of the power and happiness of Empire?."
