Forces in that Sea, directing hostile operations against the Ottoman Porte.
His Majesty will, therefore, continue to combine His efforts with those of the King of France and His Imperial Majesty, for the purpose of carrying into complete execution the Stipulations of the Treaty of London.
His Majesty commands us to acquaint you, that His Majesty had every reason to hope when he last addressed you, that the arrangements which had been made for administering the Government of Portugal, until the period at which the Emperor of Brazil should have completed his abdication of the Throne of Portugal, would have secured the peace, and promoted the happiness of a Country, in the welfare of which His Majesty has ever taken the deepest interest.
The just expectations of His Majesty have been disappointed; and measures have been adopted in Portugal, in disregard of the earnest advice and repeated remonstrances of His Majesty, which have compelled His Majesty, and the other Powers of Europe, acting in concert with His Majesty, to withdraw their Representatives from Lisbon.
His Majesty relies upon the wisdom of the August Sovereign, the head of the House of Braganza, to take the course which shall be best calculated to maintain the interests and honour of that illustrious Family, and to secure the peace and happiness of the Dominions over which it reigns.
Gentlemen of the House of Commons,
We are commanded by His Majesty to thank you for the Supplies which you have granted to Him for the service of the present Year; His Majesty will apply them with the utmost regard to economy, and will continue a deliberate revision of the several Publick Establishments, with a view to any further reduction which may be compatible with the dignity of the Crown, and with the permanent interests of the Country.
My Lords, and Gentlemen,
His Majesty commands us to congratulate you upon the general prosperity of the Country, and upon the satisfactory state of the Publick Revenue.
His Majesty contemplates the increase of our Financial Resources with peculiar gratification, on account of the decisive proof which it exhibits, that the condition of His Subjects is one of progressive improvement.
His Majesty commands us, in conclusion, to assure you, that His unabated exertions will be directed to inculcate among Foreign Powers a spirit of mutual goodwill; and to encourage the industry, to extend the commerce, and advance the general welfare of His own Dominions.
