3. An Act to secure Sympson's Debt, and save harmless the Warden of The Fleet, in Sir Thomas Sherley's Case.

When those of the Lower House had presented the said
Bills, they also delivered a Message to their Lordships, to
this Effect: That they are now resolved for Conference
with the Lords, touching the Matter of Union; and
therefore desired to know what Number their Lordships
would appoint for Committees of the Higher House, and
the Time and Place for Meeting; whereunto Answer
was returned, That the Number of the Lords was agreed
on to be Fifty, or thereabouts; and the Meeting desired
to be this present Day by Two in the Afternoon, at the
Outward Chamber, near the Parliament Presence.
Sir Thomas Shirley's Bill.
Furthermore, they made Suit to the Lords, to move
the King's Majesty for His Royal Assent to be speedily
granted unto the Bill concerning Sir Thomas Sherley;
signifying that, if it should depend till the End of the
Parliament, the Desire and Purpose of their House by
this Bill would be frustrate. Answer to this, That the
Lords will take some Time to consider of it, and then
give further Answer.

Lord Russell's Leave to be absent.
The Lord Chancellor made known to the Lords,
that the King's Majesty was pleased to give Leave unto the
Lord Russell to be absent from the Parliament for some
Time, being to make his Repair to The Bathe for his
Form of the Union Bill by his Majesty.
After that the Lords had received the Message before
set down from the Lower House, they entered into Consideration of the Course to be taken, and the Particularities meet to be propounded in their Meeting with the
Committees of the said House, in the Conference with
them; which having been diversly debated by the Lords,
the Lord Cecyll did produce a Draught, or Form (which
had been conceived by the King's Majesty himself, and
the same written out as His Majesty did dictate), being
thought fit by His Highness to be the Substance of such
a Bill as might be framed for that Matter of the Union;
and that the House should be made acquainted with it;
which Form, or Draught, was read unto the Lords;
but not offered unto the House as a Bill, but as a brief
Draught, or Memorial, to serve for a Bill afterward
to be made, if it should be agreed on.
