Tenures and Wardships.
The Lord Chancellor did this Day put their Lordships in Mind of the Message of late sent from the Lower House, whereby was signified their Intent to yield His Majesty humble Thanks, by their Speaker, for His Gracious Favour, in licensing them, with this House, to treat of the Matter of Tenures, and the Dependencies thereon; as Wards, etc. He wished their Lordships to consider, whether it were not fit that they also, for themselves, should, in like Sort, present their dutiful Thanks to His Majesty, for His Princely Favour in the said Matter, the same appertaining (as his Lordship conceived) equally to them.
Lord Chancellor to deliver the Thanks of this House to His Majesty, on account of Tenures and Wardships.
The Motion allowed, and thereupon Agreed, That, as the Lower House resolved to use their Speaker on their Behalf, so this House would use the Lord Chancellor as their Mouth; which Charge they urged his Lordship to take upon him, and he at the length yielded thereunto, though, for some respects (which he very modestly uttered), he was unwilling to undertake that Employment. He besought them, that he might have in writing that which he should deliver, or at the least certain general Capita, which should be the Scope of his Speech to His Majesty; which the Lords would not assent unto, but referred the same wholly to the said Lord Chancellor's Wisdom, who, understanding the Matter, was well able to dispose thereof.
Agreed further, That To-morrow in the Afternoon the Lords undernamed shall attend His Majesty, to understand His Pleasure when this House shall present unto His Highness their humble Thanks as aforesaid: videlicet,
L. Archbp. of Cant.
L. Privy Seal.
L. St. John.
