That their Lordships have entered into Consideration of those Points delivered by the Gentlemen of this House in the late Conference; that they found them to be many, and weighty; and that they yet had not any fit Time to make Report of them to the House : They therefore have been induced, this Day being appointed for the Continuance of the Conference, to pray a longer Time ; and that they could have inclined, that Friday following should have been the Day, but that they had appointed another great Service of his Majesty's, that Day [a]: Their Desire is therefore, that it may be on Saturday, at the Place and Time usual.
Upon the Division, such, as stood with the Commitment, offered to go out; but seeing the greater Number by much likely to sit still, returned to their Places, and yielded. And so the Bill was rejected.
Leave of Absence.
