nearer my heart than that, by your care ,
and wisdom, all such measures may be |
adopted, as may, upon fullconfideration, i
appear bed calculated to alleviate this ;
severe preflure, and to prevent the danger ,
of its recurrence, by promoting, as far'
as poliible, the pertinent extpnhon and
improvement of our agriculture. ,
" For the objedt of immediate relief,' '
your attention will naturally be diredted. in
the firft instance, to the baft mode of
affording the earliest and mod ample en- 1
couragement for the importatibn of all
descriptions of Gxain from abroad,
, " Such a supply, aided by the ex
amples which you have (ct <>n former
©ccafions of attention to economy and
frijgality in the consumption of Corn, is
molt likely to contribute to a reduftion in
the prefeut high price, and to inlure at the
fame time the means of meeting the
demands for the ijeceflary consumption ofj
the year.
The present drcumftances will also I am
persuaded, render the (late of the laws re

" If on the result of that deliberation it
shall appear to you that the evil neceffatily
a,rifing from unfavourable feai'ons has been
increased by any combinations or
fraudulent praflices, for the fake of adding
unfairly to the price, you will feel an ear
ned desire if effectually preventing such
ab'. Fes ; but you will, I am i'ure, be care
ful to distinguish any practices of this na
ture from that regular and long eltabliftled
course of trade which experience has lhewn
to be intjifpenfable for the present state of
loc.iety, for the supply of the markets, and
for the subsistence of mypeciple.
" You will have seen with concern the
temporary 'disturbances which have takeii
place in some par|s of the langdapi. Thoi
iralicions and diiaffected perloiu who crii-'
elly take advantage of the
ties to excite any of my lubjefts to'act
in violation of the laws and of the public
peace, are in the present circumstances dou
bly criminal, as fitch proceedings mult ne
cessarily and immediately tend to iucreafe
in the llighelt degree the evil complained
of, while they at the lame time, endanger
the permanent tranquility of the country,
cn which the well-being of the-induftrious
claflcs of the community mult always prin
cipally depend.
" The voluntary which have
m this occasion been made for the imme
diate reprelfion of these outrages, and in
support of Ihe laws and public peace, are
therefore entitled to n>y highefl praise.
" Gentlemen of the Houje of Commons,
" UtKjer the circumltances of the present
meeting, I am defirotts of asking of you such
Supplies only as may be neceflary for carry

of the United Kingdom of Great Britain
and Ireland may conveniently be
The Eftirtiates for that purpose wtil be laid
before you; and I have no doubt of voor
re&dineft to make such provisions as the
public interest may appear to require.
" My Lor as and Gentlemen,
" I have directed Copies to be laid be
fore you of thole communications which
have been recently palled between me and
the Ftench Government, refpeding the
commencement of negociations for peace.
You will fee )n them frefh and flriking
proofs of my earr.elt desire to contribute to
the re-establishment of general tranquility.
That desire on my part has hitherto Been
unhappily fruftrated, by the detetmination
of the enemy to enter on a separate
negociation, in which it was impossible for
me to engage, tonliftently either with public
faith, or with a due regard to the perma
nent lecurity of Europe.
" My anxiety for the speedy restora
tion of peace remains unaltered ; and there
■will be no obftaclt s nor delay on my part to
the adoption of such mekfures as may best
tend to promote and accelerate that deiira
ble end, confidently with the honour of
this country, and the true intdreft of my
people ; but if the difpolitiotf of our ene
mies Ihould continue to render this greatob
jeiVof all my wishes unattainable, without
the of these e Hernial considera
tions, on the maintenance of which all its
advantages mult depend, you will, I am
confident, parfevere in affording me the
fame loyal and steady support which I have
experienced through the whole of this im
portant contest, and which lias, under the
bJelfiDg of Providence, enabled me, during
a period of such uuexsmple difficulty and
calamity to all the iurrounding nations, to
maintain, unimpaired, the security and ho
nour ef these kingdoms

very long debate took place on the answer which
it was propoled to fend so K by the Commons ;
