Message from the H. C.
Message sent to the Lower House, by Mr. Serjeant Crooke and Sir Edward Stanhope:
Naturalization of the Scots.
That forasmuch as it is not unknown unto them, that, in all the Consideration about the Union, the Lords have held an Uniformity of Consultation, no one Part considerable having been drawn to any Head, but by Conference with them; the Lords, conceiving the greatest Portion to be yet undebated, namely the Point of Naturalization, saving that one Branch of it hath been spoken of, wherein the Lords have no ways expressed their Opinions; they have now thought fit, before any further Proceeding should be, to move them to agree of some speedy Meeting about Naturalization in general; to the Intent that, at the next Meeting, each House may be able to make some Judgement of each other's Inclination, which will serve for the best Foundation, whereupon the whole Work may be builded.
Answer, That they had entered into Consideration of this Message, and of the Manner and Matter, being of great Weight and Importance; and would (because it required that they should be in like Manner well advised of their Answer, the Day being now far spent) send Answer with as much convenient Speed as they might.
Dominus Cancellarius continuavit præsens Parliamentum usque in diem crastinum, videlicet, 3m Martii, hora nona.
