A BILL to enable Richard Carter Esquire, Son and Heir of John Carter Esquire, deceased, to sell certain Lands and Tenements, for Payment of his and his Father's Debts was this Day read the Third time; and, upon the Question, passed.
Mr. Robinson reports from the Committee, to whom the Business of Drury-House was referred, a great Abuse offered to the said Committee by one James Noble, in the Presence of a Multitude of People, using divers scandalous and reproachful Words and Speeches against the Committee, and the Members of it; which Words were so high and insolent, that the Committee required the Serjeant at Arms to restrain him of his Liberty, till the Pleasure of the House were known.
