The VICE - CHAMBERLAIN (Mr. Geoffrey Howard)

reported His Majesty's Answer to the Address of the 27th day of this instant August, as followeth:—

I thank you for your loyal and dutiful Address.

I will gladly convey to the King of the Belgians the sympathy and admiration with which, in common with Myself and all My People, you regard the heroic resistance offered by His Army and People to the wanton invasion of His Territory, and an assurance of the determination of this Country to support in every way the efforts of Belgium to vindicate her own independence and the public law of Europe.
