Whereas, by the Indisposition of the Lord Archbishop of Cant. a Report is not yet made unto this House of the King's Answer to the Message sent Yesterday to His Majesty by a Committee of both Houses; their Lordships (to hold good Correspondency) have thought good to signify thus much unto them; and withall, that their Lordships think it convenient (if a Report thereof be not already made in the House of Commons) that the Committee of both Houses do meet at Two this Afternoon, in the Painted Chamber, to agree upon the same; and that the said Committees have Power to meet, from Time to Time, as they shall agree amongst themselves, until they have prepared the Report for the House.
Answered, That the Commons render their Lordships hearty Thanks for the good Correspondency which they hold with their House, and earnestly desire the Continuance thereof; that no Report hath been yet made to their House of His Majesty's Answer to the Message sent Him Yesterday, neither do they expect any until the Committees have met and conferred thereof. They are very willing, therefore, that their Committee do meet with the Committee of their Lordships, at the Time and Place appointed.
