HC Deb 27 April 1865 vol 178 c1081

Sir, in order to give this House an opportunity of expressing those feelings which I am sure every Member entertains, and which pervade the whole country, with reference to the assassination of the President of the United States, in the absence of my noble Friend at the head of the Government, I beg to give notice that on Monday next he will move a humble Address to Her Majesty, expressing the feelings of deep sorrow and indignation with which we have heard of the perpetration of that atrocious crime, and our sympathy with the Government and people of the United States, and humbly praying that in any communication which Her Majesty may make to the Government of that country of Her own sentiments she may be graciously pleased at the same time to convey a feeling of condolence on the part of this House.
