THE Grand Committee, according to a former Order, sat, to take into Consideration the removing and taking away the Obstructions that hinder the putting in Execution the Directions concerning the Electing of Elders; and the Ordinance concerning the keeping from the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper Persons grossly ignorant, or notoriously scandalous.
The Lords have received a Report from the Committee of both Kingdoms: It consists of Two Parts: The first is concerning a Letter from Mr. Strickland; which they think fit to be referred to the Committee of the Admiralty and Cinque-Ports; and desire the Concurrence of the House therein: The other Part concerns the intercepted Letters; and they desire, That the Scotts Commissioners may have Duplicates of all such intercepted Letters and Papers as concern the Scottish Affairs.
