E. of Cumberland's Privilege. Allome's Arrest.
Ordered this Day, That, forasmuch as the Writ of
Habeas corpus, for the Person of William Allome to be
brought into the Court, on this present Day (according
to the Order of the Court on the 26th of April) was
not accomplished, by reason that no Person attended and
followed the Cause for taking out of the said Writ:
that therefore the said William Allome shall be brought
into the Court, on Monday Morning, the last Day of
this Instant Month of April, and the Writ to be awarded forth accordingly; and the Serjeant at Arms then also to bring into the Court the above-named Robert
Beane, and William Cabbstacke.
A Message from the Lower House.
A Message delivered from the Lower House, by Mr.
Secretary Herbert, accompanied with divers Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses; wherein he propounded Four
1. That they were ready for Conference concerning
the Matter of Union, when the Lords will.
2. That they were also ready for Conference about
Matter of Religion, but the Time not resolved on.
3. They desire Furtherance and Expedition to the Bill
for Sir Thomas Sherley.
4. The usual Place of Meeting (at the Outward
Chamber near the Parliament Presence) too strait, and
not convenient; and therefore wished that some other
might be considered of.
Whereunto Answer was returned by the Lords:
First, That they desired the Conference for the Union
to be this Afternoon, about Two of the Clock.
2. The Time for the other Conference for Matter of
Religion, referred to themselves; whereof when they
shall resolve, the Lords will be ready.
3. Sir Thomas Sherley's Bill hath already had Two
Readings; but the Lords make Doubt how His Majesty's Royal Assent may be given; which being to be
done but by Two Ways, videlicet, either by His Majesty's presence or by Commission, the Lords do hold the
first unfit, that His Majesty should be moved to come in
Person purposely, for the giving of His Royal Assent to
any one private Bill; and for the second, concerning the
Royal Assent by Commission, some Doubt is conceived,
whether the King's Royal Assent to one Bill a-part, do
not conclude a Session.
4. The Inconvenience of the usual Place of Meeting
proceedeth of themselves of the Lower House; because,
in Meeting, they do exceed the Number of the Committees, which the Lords do not; and, if they would not
exceed their Number, the Lords hold the Place convenient enough, and of Ease; and, therefore, the former
Place, in the Outward Chamber, to continue.
Exception to Lord Kinlosse's Bond.
When the Bills of the Earl of Mar, Sir Thomas Areskin, and Sir James Areskin, were to be sent down to
the Lower House, it was moved, That the Lord of Kinlosse's Bill should be sent with them; but, by reason of
some Exception taken to the Bond which he had entered
into for that Cause, the sending of the Bill was deferred;
and it was Ordered, That the said Lord of Kinlosse should
attend the Lords that are named in the Bond, and to be
considered by them how the Bond may be reformed in
such Points as Exception was taken to it.
Memorandum, That the said Bond was delivered to the
Lord Treasurer, by the Clerk of the Parliament.
