Mr. Speaker,

The Lords do desire a present Conference with this House, in the Painted Chamber, upon the Subject-matter of the last Conference.

And then the Messengers were called in again; and Mr. Speaker acquainted them therewith.

Ordered, That the Members who managed the last Conference, do manage this Conference.

And the Managers went to the Conference.

And being returned;

Mr. Lowther reported from the Conference, That the same was managed by * * * * who acquainted them, That the Lords do insist upon their Amendments to the Bill, intituled, An Act to naturalize Richard Legg, and others; and gave their Reasons for the same; as follow; viz.

That the Lords do acknowlege, that the Commons had good Reason to be apprehensive of the Addition of so many Names, by way of Amendment to this Bill, because that, at the time it was returned to the Commons, there was no Opportunity, by the usual Method of Proceedings between the Two Houses, to inform them of the Reasons for it: But their Lordships hope, that when, by the Means of this Conference, the Condition, Circumstances, and Merits, of the Persons proposed by the Lords to be added to the Bill, shall appear, that the Commons will be prevailed with to admit of them, for the same Reasons that prevailed with their Lordships; and to that End the Lords have directed, That the Commons should be acquainted with the several Circumstances of every Person added, by their Amendments.

Their Lordships have as much Consideration as the Commons can desire, of the English Officers and Soldiers now out of Employment, since the late reducing and disbanding the Army, whom they would always have preferred before any Foreigners; but they cannot but hope, that since, this Bill was intended by the Commons for the Benefit of those Foreigners that were at first put into the Bill, because, as their Lordships conceive, they had served long and faithfully in the English Troops, that the Commons will, upon the same Grounds, agree to those added by the Lords Amendments, they being found to be in the same Circumstances:

For these Reasons, and on this Account, their Lordships do insist on their Amendments, except only as to Gerrard Van Hesta, and George William Krond, whom they do agree to leave out of this Bill, because the one being a Kettle-Drum, and the other a Trumpeter, they are provided for, in a Clause sent up by the Commons, to be added to the Bill for naturalizing Samuel Bernardeau, and others; which is agreed to by the Lords:
