Dod versus Burrows.

This Day, the Counsel of Anne Dod Widow, Magdalen Johnson Widow, Robert Colebatch, Anne his Wife, Sarah Dod, Robert Cooper, Pricilla his Wife, Francis Dod, Charlton Hill, Jn° Hill, and Rowland Hill, as also the Counsel of Thomas Burrowes, appeared at the Bar; where the Speaker acquainted them with what Sir Anthony Keck and Sir William Rawlinson, Two of the Lords Commissioners of the Great Seal, said.

After hearing what was said by the Counsel on both Sides thereupon, and due Consideration had thereof, it is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Order or Judgement of this House, made the 30th Day of April last, on the Behalf of the said Anne Dod Widow, Magdalen Johnson, and others, Plaintiffs, in this House, shall be, and is hereby, confirmed.

Message from H. C. with the General Pardon Bill.

A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Mr. Roberts and others:

Who returned the Bill which they have passed, intituled, "An Act for the King and Queen's Majesties most Gracious, General, and Free Pardon."

Bill to vest the Hereditary Revenue in Their Majesties.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, and put into a Committee, upon the Bill, intituled, "An Act declaring the Hereditary Revenue of the Crown to be vested in Their Majesties."

The Bill was read through, Paragraph by Paragraph.

The House was resumed.

And the Earl of Bridgewater reported, "That the Committee had gone through the said Bill; and thought it fit to pass, without any Amendment."

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, to robe.

The House was resumed.

King present.

His Majesty, being arrayed in His Royal Robes and Regal Crown, ascended His Throne, all the Peers being in their Robes.

The Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod was commanded to signify His Majesty's Pleasure to the Commons, "That they presently attend His Majesty."

Who being come, with their Speaker;

Then the Clerk of the Crown read the Title of the Bill following; (videlicet,)

Bills passed.

"An Act for the King and Queen's Majesties most Gracious, General, and Free Pardon."

To which the Clerk of the Parliaments pronounced the Royal Assent, in these Words,

"Le Roy et la Reyne le veulent."

Then His Majesty spake as follows:

King's Speech.

"My Lords and Gentlemen,

"I have had such Assurance of your good Affections to Me, that I come now to thank you, and particularly for the Supplies you have given Me.

"The Season of the Year is so far advanced, that I can no longer delay My going into Ireland, and therefore I think it necessary to have an Adjournment of the Parliament; and that it shall be but to a short Day; yet, unless some great Occasion require it (of which you shall have due Notice), I do not intend you shall sit to do Business until the Winter; and I hope, by the Blessing of GOD, we shall then have a happy Meeting.

"In the mean Time, I recommend to you the Discharge of your Duties in your respective Countries; that the Peace of the Nation may be secured by your Vigilance and Care in your several Stations."

Then the Speaker, by His Majesty's Command, said:

"My Lords and Gentlemen,

Houses directed to adjourn themselves.

"It is His Majesty's Pleasure, That you adjourn yourselves to the Seventh Day of July next."

Speaker adjourned the Parliament by Mistake, and submits.

The Speaker having declared, when the King was in the Throne, and the Commons present, that the Parliament was adjourned; and finding his Mistake; declared the King's Pleasure, "That both Houses should adjourn themselves."

And, after His Majesty was withdrawn, having asked Pardon for the said Mistake:

It is ORDERED, That an Entry thereof be made accordingly.



Rob'tus Atkins, Miles de Balneo, Capitalis Baro de Scaccario, Orator Procerum, declaravit præsens Parliamentum continuandum esse usque in diem Lunæ, (videlicet,) 7um diem Julii prox. sequent. hora decima Aurora, Dominis sic decernentibus.

Hitherto examined by us, this 24th May, 1690,

J. Bridgewater.
