Message from the H. C.
Message from the Lower House, by Sir Edward Hobby and others:
Naturalization of the Scots.
That, upon the Message sent them Yesterday from the Lords, they observed their Lordships Care to be such, in a Matter of so great Weight and Importance as that, to help the Memory of their Messengers, the said Message was set down in Writing; and he, being now sent by that House to make Answer, thought fit, for helping his Memory in like Sort, to make a Memorial in Writing of that which he is to deliver, the Substance whereof is this: That whereas the Message from their Lordships was for a further Conference of Naturalization in general, and the Common House understanding it to be meant touching Naturalization of the Ante nati and Post nati, and of the Conveniency of it, and for such Limitations and Restraints as might be fit for both, they will enter into Consideration thereof, in such Sense as they conceived it, and will prepare themselves for Conference so soon as they can, and give Advertisement to the Lords, when they shall be ready.
Answer, That the Message from the Lords was to confer on Naturalization in general; of the which what Exposition or Interpretation they will make, the Lords do leave to their own Judgement or Conceit; but the Lords will be ready to confer with them on the Point of Naturalization in general, as was signified by their Message; and withall, the Lords do expect, and move them, That they will use Expedition for the Meeting and Conference.
Motion made by the Earl of Salisbury for further Proceeding on the Bill of Defective Titles, and the rather for that sundry of the Committees were absent at the Meeting Yesterday on the same, and by that Means little done therein.
Agreed, That the Committees should meet on the same To-morrow Morning, by Eight of the Clock, at the Little Chamber.
