Another Message to the House of Commons for Lord Seymour's Attainder.
This Day were sent down the Master of the Rolls, Sir James Hales, and Serjeant Molineux, with like Commission, in Effect, as they were sent down the Thursday before. Answer was made, That they would consult together, and thereupon they would with Speed send up their Resolution; but, no Haste having been made therein by them of the Nether House, and the Lords having sat so long as was thought the Time very far spent, they concluded to depart; desiring the Lord Protector, that it might please him to receive such Answer as should be sent, touching this Purpose, from the Nether House, and to make Report thereof at the next Assembly, which should be the next Monday.
