His Majesty' s most gracious Answer.

"My Lords: I return you my thanks for this dutiful and affectionate address. It is with the greatest pleasure I observe the satisfaction which the success of my arms against the Rebels in North-America has given to all my loving subjects. That which you express is highly acceptable to me. The preservation of the publick tranquillity, the happiness of all my people, and the maintenance of our most excellent constitution, are the invariable objects of my heart."
