Answer to the Council


His Honour' s Answer.

GENTLEMEN: I thank you for this Address. It will give me pleasure to convey to the Throne these warm expressions of your loyalty and attachment to our gracious Sovereign, and your solicitude for the glory of the British Empire.

While we with confidence rely on his Majesty' s wisdom and paternal affection, and the justice and magnanimity of the Nation, for restoring harmony among the various parts of the Empire, our utmost efforts are necessary to prevent the destructive consequences of anarchy and confusion.
