In the FOURTH SESSION of the

Fifteenth Parliament of GREAT BRITAIN.


Tuesday, November 11.
S soon as the Speaker and members returned from A. 1783.

the House of Peers, to which they were summoned to attend his Majesty, and that the bufiness of swearing in new members, and issuing writs was over, the King's Speech was read from the Chair (for which, see Lords' Debates] after which,

The Earl of Upper Olory rose to move an Address in answer The Earl to it. He said, that unaccustomed as he was to speak in of Upper public, and conscious of his want of the powers of persuasion, he would not have undertaken the talk of calling upon the House to vote an Address of Thanks, if he was not convinced that every part of the speech which had been just read, was perfectly unexceptionable; and therefore he was confident that an address in reply to it, would meet with the unanimous approbation of gentlemen of every description within the walls. The Speech, he observed, recapitulated the principal political events that had taken place during the recess of Parliament. The definitive treaties of peace, between the Court of Great Britain and those of France and Spain, and the United States of America, had been happily concluded; by which the seal was put to the pacification that had freed this country from a calamitous and expensive war.
