HOUSE of COMMONS,

In the FOURTH SESSION of the Fifteenth Parliament of Great Britain*

Tuesday, November lit

AS soon as the Speaker and member* returned from A. 1783, the House of Peers, to which they were summoned to attend his Majesty, arid that the business of swearing in new members, and issuing writs was over, the King's Speech was read from the Chair £for which, see Lords' Debates]— aster which,

The Earl of Upper Ofsory rose to move an Address in answer Th» Earl to it. * He said, that unaccustomed as he was to speak in ossUp|jer 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 persectly unexceptionable; and therefore he was consident 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 Tccess of Parliament. The desinitive treaties of peace> between the Court of Great Britain and those of France ana Spain, and the United States of America, had been happily concluded; by which the seal was put to the pacisication that had freed this countrv from a calamitous and expensive war.
