This Bill was first reported to the House by the Earl
The Petition of the Lord Treasurer, exhibited this
Day to the House, was read, in hæc verba: videlicet,
L. Treasurer's Petition.
"To the Right Honourable Assembly of the Lords
Spiritual and Temporal in the Higher House
"The Lord Treasurer doth herewith most humbly
present to your Lordships such Interrogatories, concerning the rest of his Charge, as he humbly desires
his Witnesses may be examined upon, as well those
formerly delivered to this most Honourable House, as
these whose Names he now humbly presenteth to that
Purpose, here under-written.
"And since your Lordships have appointed Friday peremptorily for the Hearing of his Cause, his most
humble Suit is, to know the Pleasure of this most
Honourable House concerning the Copies of the Depositions, that he may receive them in some convenient
Time before, whereby to prepare himself for his just
Defence against the Day appointed.
Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Thomas Catchmay, the L. Treasurer's Receiver.
Sir Simon Harvey.
John Williams, Merchant.
Fletcher, one of the Petty Farmers.
John Maylle, Scrivener.
John Raymond, Servant to Sir Benjamin Rudierd.
Nicholas Stott, Messenger attending the Commissioners of the Navy.
John Bland, Servant to Abraham Jacob.
Clerke, Servant to Mr. Barrett, Grocer.
The Interrogatories also, which the Lord Treasurer
sent this Day, were read.
Orders concerning the L. Treasurer.
Ordered, The Lord Treasurer shall have Copies of
all Depositions taken out on his Part Two Days before
the Day of Hearing.
And the Lord Say and Seale and the Lord Haughton
are appointed to draw up an Answer, to be given to this Petition of the Lord Treasurer's; and
to report the same to the House.
The Lord Keeper moved the House, To consider of
the Lord Treasurer's former Petitions for Copies of the
Depositions concerning him; which were denied, for
that they were unseasonably prayed, his own Witnesses
not being then examined; and whether their Lordships
will not now think it fit, that the Lord Treasurer shall
have Copies of all Depositions before his final Answer,
and the rather, for that this may prove a leading Case
The House referred the Consideration thereof unto
the Lords Committees for Privileges, &c.
The Names of the said Committee (fn. 1) were read; and the
Lord President and the Lord Scroope were added thereunto; and they presently withdrew themselves into the
Painted Chamber. At their Return, their Lordships reported this as fit to be entered for an Order: videlicet,
"That, in all Cases, it is thought fit and just, that
Publication be made a reasonable Time before the
Party accused make his final Answer; and that, after
Publication, he may have Copies freely of all Witnesses, as well against him as for him."
This was read, well approved of by the House, and
Committee for Privileges.
The House was moved, That the Lords Committees
for Privileges, &c. might meet upon one certain Day
every Week. And Ordered, That they should meet
every Friday in the Afternoon.
Message to the H. C. to defer the Conference concerning Monopolies.
Message to the House of Commons, by Mr. Serjeant
Davis and Sir Charles Cesar: videlicet,
That whereas this Afternoon is appointed for a Conference between the Committees of both Houses, concerning the Bill of Monopolies, the Lords Desire is,
That the same be deferred 'till Wednesday next, at Two,
in the Painted Chamber; for that the Lord Treasurer
hath this Day sent in many Witnesses, which require
Answered: That they will attend accordingly on Wednesday next, at Two, in the Painted Chamber.
George's Petition against the L. Treasurer's Servants.
The Petition of William George, exhibited on Saturday
last, concerning scandalous Speeches used to him by
John Barnes and Richard Colbecke (Two of the Lord
Treasurer's Servants), at such Time as the said William
George came hither to be examined, was read.
And the Examinations of Ralph Canninge and Peter
Derricke, taken on Saturday last in the Afternoon, by
the Lords Committees for the Lord Treasurer's Business,
were also read.
And the said John Barnes and Richard Colebecke being
brought to the Bar severally, they did confess their
Fault, expressed their hearty Sorrow for the same, and
humbly craved Pardon of their Lordships; alledging that
they spoke those Words in their Choler, in Defence of
They being withdrawn;
L. Treasurer's Servants dismissed.
Their Lordships were moved to remit this their Offence, which deserves no severe Punishment, in Consideration of their Humility and Sorrow for the same, and
for that they had been in the Serjeant's Custody ever
since Saturday Morning.
Whereupon they were called in again; and, having
acknowledged their Offence, and humbly begged Pardon for the same;
The said William George was also called in, and they
acknowledged the Wrong they did unto him; and so
