Carlton-House, February 5, 1817.

This day the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor, the Aldermen, Recorder, Sheriffs, and City Officers, waited upon His Royal Highness the Prince Regent with the following Address, which was read by Sir John Silvester, Bart. the Recorder.

To His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, REGENT of the United Kingdom of Great I}ritain and Ireland.

The humble and dutiful Address of the Court of Lord Mayor and Aldermen of the City of London.

May it please your Royal Highness,

WE, the Lord Mayor and Aldermen of the City of London, beg leave to approach your Royal Highness with profound sentiments of duty and respect, to express our horror and indignation at the most daring and flagitious outrage offered to your Royal Person, at the moment of your return from the House of Parliament on the occasion of your Royal Highness exercising the sacred duties of the Crown, and fulfilling, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, the very important

function of one of the estates of the realm.
With the deepest concern we have to deplore,
that any one should be found within His Majesty's
dominions capable of violence so atrocious, so dis-
graceful to human nature, so foreign to the British
character; and we most fervently hope, that the
loyalty of the subjects of the United Empire will
manifest itself to prevent a repetition of an at-
tempt so base against the sacred person of your

Royal Highness. - -
We beg permission to add, that nothing shall be
wanting on our part as Magistrates of the metro-
B 2 polis

polis of the empire, to promote on all occasions the general tranquillity, and to evince our steady loyalty and attachment to your Royal House and Person, and our determination to support the crown and dignity of these realms.

Signed, by order of Court,
Henry Woodthorpe.

To which Address His Royal Highness was pleased to return the following most gracious Answer:

“I thank you for this loyal and dutiful Address.

“It is highly satisfactory to me to receive upon this occasion, and at the present conjuncture, these assurances of your steady attachment to me and my family, and of your determination to promote obedience to the laws, and to afford firm support to the Crown, the prerogatives of which are inseparably connected with the liberties and best interests of the people.”

They were all received very graciously, and had the honour of kissing the hand of His Royal Highness.
