Monday, July 16.

The Parliament met, in pursuance of the late Adjournment, and adjourned again, by the King's command, till the 3d of December; though some of them seemed dissatisfied with the manner of this, as much as they were with the late Adjournment. In particular,

Lord Cavendish.] Moved that the House might see the Journal, by what Order, and in what method, they were adjourned last.

Mr Williams.] Seconded the Motion.

But some cried out "Adjourn, Adjourn," others called for the Question. But the Speaker told them, "That he had received Orders from the King, by Mr Secretary Coventry, to adjourn the House till the 3d of December," and pronounced the House adjourned accordingly.
