Leave of Absence.
By reason of the Absence of Mr. Speaker, the House, though they might give Leave, yet could not pronounce it, because they wanted their Mouth; yet, by a kind of Connivence, Leave was granted unto him, and the Clerk directed to enter it.

Sir Fr. Hastings informed the House of Mr. Speaker's Infirmity; viz. a great Pain in his Neck and Head, so as he was no way able, without Danger, to attend; and prayed, that this Court might, with their Favour, be adjourned till Friday Morning.
