HL Deb 12 June 1840 vol 54 cc1099-100
The Lord Chancellor

My Lords, I have to acquaint your Lordships that other noble Lords and myself have this day had the honour of waiting upon her Majesty with the joint Address of the two Houses of Parliament, to which her Majesty was pleased to return the following gracious answer:— It is with heartfelt satisfaction, that I receive upon the present occasion this Address from both my houses of Parliament. I am deeply sensible of the mercy of Divine Providence, to whose continued protection I humbly commend myself; and I trust, that under all trials, I shall find the same consolation and support, which I now derive from, the loyal and affectionate attachment of my Parliament and my people.

On the motion of Viscount Melbourne, her Majesty's answer was ordered to be entered upon the Journals of the House.
