Message to the Lower House, by Mr. Serjeant Crooke and Sir Edward Stanhope:
To abolish Hostilities and Animosities between England and Scotland.
That the Lords have proceeded in the Reading of the Bill concerning the Abolition of the Hostile Laws, and perused it diligently in a Committee; where, finding some Causes of Doubt, which they desired to be cleared, they move, That a Conference may be had of the Committees of both Houses, for the better Resolving of these Doubts, and to meet this Afternoon, if they can; if not, on Thursday in the Afternoon.
Answer, That they will attend the Meeting upon Thursday, in the Afternoon, with the Number of an Hundred Committees of their House.
Message from the Lower House, by Sir Edwin Sandes and others:
Grievances in the Spanish Trade.
That they have sent to the Lords the Petition presented to that House, with certain Articles and Reasons annexed thereto. They thought it needless; because, by the Inscription of the Petition being directed, "To the King's most Excellent Majesty, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and to the rest of this Honourable Court," they thought the like Petition had been presented to the Lords. They observe Two Parts in the Petition: 1. A Complaint. 2. Direction for Remedy. They have only entertained the First; and, having examined the Proofs of the Complaints, but not having Power to convent those that are complained of, they do find in their Judgement (so far as they could examine) the Complaint just, the Grievances great, the Remedy necessary; but as for the Second, they have not entertained any Purpose to deal therein; but, as most proper to His Majesty's Wisdom and Clemency (who hath the Protection of all His Subjects), they wholly leave it to Him, and do only renew that which they moved at the first, that Petition may be made to His Majesty, for some such Means of Redress as in His Princely Wisdom shall be thought fit.
Dominus Cancellarius continuavit præsens Parliamentum usque in diem Jovis, videlicet, 11m Junii, hora 9a et dimidia.
