This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: the House of Lords?--Yes. The robes were on the Throne, and she sat down on the Throne. And I may mention the Queen read her Speech sitting, not standing, as His Majesty did. Earl Carrington. 663.

In fact on his appointment he does not receive any wand or badge of office, and he does not kiss hands. 664.

Mr. Holland. 668. I understand you to say that you would object to the Table in the House of Lords being removed, because the Clerk of the Parliaments and the Clerks at the Table sit there?--Yes. 669.
