Tellers, Receivers, &c.
Certain Articles were presented in Writing by the Lower House, touching their Opinions and Objections, concerning the Bill of Tellers, Receivers, etc. which were delivered to Mr. Attorney General, to the End he might confer with the Judges upon the same, and make Report to the Lords.
The Bill for Arthur Hatch, Her Majesty's Ward, etc. was returned into the House, by the Lord Treasurer, the first of the Committees; and, forasmuch as it seemed to the Committees, that there were in the Bill certain Points that could not be well reformed, a Motion was made to the House (upon Agreement among the Committees), that the Proceedings in this Bill might cease, and that another Course might be taken, by way of Composition, betwixt the Dean and Chapter of Windsor, and Arthur Hatch; for which Purpose, a Bill was brought ready drawn by Mr. Attorney General, containing a Form of Composition betwixt them, to be ratified (if it should be thought good) by Parliament.
