Ordered, That a Letter be prepared and signed by Mr. Speaker, and sent to the General, to express, How much, and how greatly, this House doth, upon the very first View of them, disdain those Articles and Overtures offered by those at Oxon; to take notice of the Respects of the General in sending up those Articles, and in doing nothing at all upon them; which sufficiently signifies his just Dislike of them; and to return him Thanks; and further to signify, That the House doth leave it wholly to him, to proceed effectually, according to the Trust reposed in him, for the speedy gaining and reducing the Garison of Oxon to the Obedience of the Parliament.
