§ THE EARL OF MALMESBURY
My Lords, before we proceed to the Business on the Paper, I beg to move that an humble Address he presented to Her Majesty, congratulating Her Majesty on the Princess of Wales having given birth to a Princess, and assuring Her Majesty of the deep interest which is felt by the House of Lords in all that concerns the domestic happiness of Her Majesty and her family. I am sure this Address will be cordially adopted by your Lordships, interested as we all are in the domestic happiness of Her Majesty, and grateful as we are to Providence for having preserved the Princess of Wales through this period of trial. I believe, indeed, there is not a person in the country who does not share the same sentiments, for it is impossible that anyone in her high position could have more endeared herself to the nation than Her Royal Highness has done.
§ Moved, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, to congratulate Her Majesty on The Princess of Wales having happily given birth to a Princess, and to assure Her Majesty of the deep Interest felt by the House of Lords in all that concerns the domestic Happiness of Her Majesty and Her Family.—(The Lord Privy Seal.)
§ EARL RUSSELL
I have great pleasure in seconding the Motion; and I am sure all Her Majesty's subjects participate in the congratulation and loyalty expressed in the Address which the noble Earl has asked your Lordships to adopt.
§ Agreed to, Nemine Dissentiente: And the said Address Ordered to be presented to Her Majesty by the Lords with White Staves.
