Message to the House of Commons, concerning the Union.
Message sent to the Lower House, by Mr. Serjeant Crooke and Mr. Dr. Hone:

Answer returned afterward, by Sir Edward Hobbie and others, That, after Saturday Morning next, they will be ready to have Conference concerning the said First Two Points.
Whereupon the Time for the said Conference was appointed to be upon Saturday, the 13th of this Instant December, by Two of the Clock in the Afternoon, at the Outward Chamber; and the same Committees to attend the Meeting that were before nominated.
