HIS MAJESTIES MOST GRACIOUS SPEECH TO BOTH HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT ON FRIDAY THE 22th OF MAY, 1685
by King James II
London: By the Assigns of John Bill, Deceased: And by Henry Hills, and Thomas Newcomb, 1685. Disbound. The first speech of the new King James II to Parliament, on the first day of its meeting. He thanks the Lords and Commons for their support, requests the traditional incomes afforded to the king, and informs them of an outbreak of rebellion in Scotland. This Parliament was initially very loyal to James, granting him much of what he asked for, but he soon used up their goodwill with his pro-Catholic policies, eventually leading to his fleeing the country and Parliament's invitation to William and Mary to ascend the throne.
