PRAYERS, by Mr. Salwey.
Domini præsentes fuerunt:
Comes Denbigh, Speaker.
Committee to settle the Government.
Because the Messengers sent Yesterday with a Message to the House of Commons have not yet been admitted in:
It is Ordered, They shall desire the Committee may meet To-morrow Morning, at Nine of the Clock.
Speaker to wait on The States Ambassadors.
Ordered, by the Lords in Parliament assembled, That the Earl of Denbigh is appointed, by this House, to go to the Ambassadors from The States Generall of The United Provinces, "To congratulate their safe Arrival, and to excuse their Lordships not sending sooner, which the great Alterations happening in this Kingdom may give sufficient Occasion for.
"What was represented by them in relation to His late Majesty, God having disposed of Him, it will now be unreasonable to give any further Answer. But what may concern the Continuance and Increase of all fair Correspondence between this Kingdom and The States Generall of the United Provinces, their Lordships will most readily embrace all Occasions that may further the Union of this Kingdom and that State in a perpetual Tie of common Interest and Confidence."
House adjourned till 9a cras.
