Sir Thomas Widdrington reports, from the Grand Committee, the Amendments to the Bill concerning the Passing of Bills for the Taxing and Levying of Monies for the Payment and Satisfaction of the Debts and Damages of the Kingdom, and for other publick Uses: The which were twice read; and the Bill, thus amended, ordered, upon the Question, to be ingrossed.
The humble Petition of Henry Earl of Holland; a Particular of such Losses as the said Earl hath sustained in his private Fortune, by reason of the publick Troubles; and the Lords Sense in their Paper upon the said Petition; were all read: The Paper was in hæc verba; viz.
That the Lords, considering the good Affections which the Earl of Holland hath shewed unto the Publick, do think fit, that a Person, who hath suffered so much in his Fortune for adhering to the Parliament, should in some measure be by them relieved.
Ordered, That the Committee for Whitehall do take care to appoint some Hangings out of the King's standing Wardrobe at Whitehall, or any other of his Majesty's Wardrobes, to be hung before the Window of this House, as Curtains, for the desending and preserving this Place against the Injury of this bitter Weather.
Ordered, That it be referred to the Committee of both Kingdoms, to prepare a Letter, to be signed by Mr. Speaker, and sent to Colonel Langherne, for the sending up to the Parliament the Persons of Mr. Walter Lloyd, now called Sir Walter Lloyd, and of Advocate-Marshal Lloyd, who are now Prisoners in his Custody.
