Col. Lundee's Petition.
A PETITION of Colonel Lundee was read; setting forth, That the Petitioner, being informed of an Address made by this House to his Majesty, to send him to Londonderry, representeth, That all the Witnesses, necessary for his Defence, are now in London: And whereas, though he could not be so fortunate to do his Majesty that good Service in his Post, as others; yet, his Majesty's Affairs having not been prejudiced by his Miscarriage; he hopes he shall not be sent to a Place, where he cannot have the Benefit of such Testimony, as will be requisite to make his Innocence appear: And praying, if he may not have the Benefit of the intended Bill of Indemnity, That he may receive his Tryal in England; and, above all, since this House has taken some Examination of the Matter, desires it may be in Parliament.
