The House of Lords - Is a spacious, lofty, and handsome apartment, hung with tapestry, that represents the destruction of the Spanish armada. At the upper end of it is the king’s throne; on the right of which, is the seat of the prince of Wales; and on the left, that of the first prince of the blood after his royal highness.—Behind the throne, are places for the young peers, who are not of age to give their votes in parliament. At the foot of it, and to the right, are the seats of the archbishops; and a little lower, those of the bishops. The peers above the rank of barons, sit on the opposite side. In the middle, the judges are seated on wool-packs, to mark that wool is a very important object of national commerce. The place for the lord chancellor is nearest the throne.—His lordship is the speaker of the house of peers.
