Ordered, That the Votes, passed Yesterday, upon the Proposition touching Delinquents, be sent up to the Lords for their Concurrence; to the Intent that the same, with all the other Votes agreed on by both Houses, be forthwith sent to the Commissioners, into the Isle of Wight.
Mr. Ashhurst brings Answer from the Lords, That, as to the Horse Guards, and the Order for Payment of Three thousand One hundred Fifty-five Pounds Fifteen Shillings and Ten-pence to Mr. Alexander Norris, out of the Receipts of Goldsmiths Hall, the Lords will send Answer by Messengers of their own: To the rest of the Particulars, by him carried to the Lords, the Lords do agree.
