The Grand Committee upon the Bill for the Union of Ireland, sat according to former order. That clause about quitting that nation of custom (which indeed is the main of all) held till one, but we came to no resolution, only referred it to a sub-committee. It was a very great Committee indeed.
Mr. Judico Sedgwick and Mr. Green were counsel for the plaintiff, Mr. Finch only of counsel for the lady, the defendant. (fn. 1)
