Gentlemen of the Housc of Commons,
His Majesty commands us to thank you for the Supplies which you have granted for the Service of the present Year, and to assure you that His Majesty has given directions for a careful revision of the Fi. nancial state of the Country, with a view to every diminution of Expenditure which may be found consistent with the necessary demands of the Pablic Service, and with the permanent interests, good faith, and honour of the Nation. My Lords, and Gentlemen,
His Majesty is confident that you participate with His Majesty in the pleasure which His Majesty derives from the indications of a gradual revival of employment in the Manufacturing Districts.
His Majesty trusts that, although your deliberations on the Corn Laws have not led, during the present Session, to a permanent settlement of that importaut Question, the consideration of it will be resumed by you early in the ensuing Session, and that such an arrangement of it may finally be adopted as shall satisfy the reasonable wishes, and reconcile the substantial interests, of all classes of His Majesty's Subjects.
