Message from H. C. for Conference concerning abolishing Popery.
MESSAGE from the Commons, by Sir Edward Cooke and others:
That the Commons desire a Conference with their Lordships, touching a Petition to be exhibited unto the King's Majesty, for the Maintenance of True Religion, and for abolishing of Popery and Superstition.
Bills from thence.
That they have sent up to their Lordships Three Bills:
1. An Act for the Ease in obtaining of Licences of Alienation, and in the Pleading of Alienations with Licence, or of Pardons of Alienations without Licence, in the Court of Exchequer and elsewhere.
2. An Act for the further Restraint of Tippling in Inns, Alehouses, and other Victualing Houses.
3. An Act for the Maintenance and Increase of Shipping and Navigation, and for the Free Liberty of Fishing and Fishing Voyages to be made and performed in and upon the Seas, Sea-coasts, and Places of Newfoundland, Virginia, New-England, and other the Seas, Sea-coasts, and Parts of America.
And that the Commons desired Expedition in the Bill for punishing Abuses committed on the Lord's-day, called Sunday; and in the Bill touching Popish Recusants.
That their Lordships have taken their Message into Consideration, and have appointed their former Committee touching the Petition of the General Fast, to meet with the like Committee of that House, presently, in the Painted Chamber, touching the Petition now desired; and their Lordships do promise all possible Expedition of the Two Bills, as is required.
The Names of the former Committee being read, and divers of them found to be absent; these Lords were added: videlicet,
E. of Mountgomery.
L. Viscount Say et Seale.
L. Bp. of Winchester.
L. Bp. of Ely.
L. Grey of W.
The Bill for Sunday reported, by the Lord President, fit to pass, without any Amendment.
Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, An Act for the punishing of divers Abuses, committed on the Lord's-day, called Sunday.
Put to the Question, and generally Assented unto.
Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, An Act for the Explanation of a Branch of the Statute, made in the Third Year of the Reign of our late Sovereign Lord King James, intituled, An Act for the better discovering and repressing of Popish Recusants.
Conference about a Petition for abolishing Popery.
The House was adjourned ad libitum, for that the Lords Committees were to go to the Conference with the Commons (ut supra); and the Lord Keeper was one of the said Committee.
Report from the Conference.
The Lords Committees being returned, and the House resumed; the Lord Keeper reported, That the Commons declared how that, the last Sessions of Parliament, the Lords and they, in their Zeal to true Religion, and Detestation of Popery and Superstition, did join in a Petition to the King, of Famous Memory, deceased, touching Recusants; which Petition proceeded originally from them, they being the general Inquisitors of the Kingdom. They have now framed another Petition, which is in Part a Repetition of the former, with some Addition, for that there is a great and apparent Increase of Popery and Superstition; the Answer of our late Sovereign not taking that good Success which was expected.
That they humbly desire the Lords to join with them in this Petition also.
The Petition being delivered to the Clerk to be read, and the Lords intending to advise on each Particular thereof with the more Deliberation, their Lordships thought fit to let the Commons understand, That they will send them Answer by Messengers of their own; which was done accordingly; and then, the Petition being read, the Lords Agreed, To consider thereof on Monday next, in the Morning.
York Herald imprisoned by the E.Marshal.
The Petition of Ralphe Brooke, Yorke Herald, touching his Imprisonment, etc. by the Earl Marshal, was read, and referred to be examined by the Committees of Privileges, etc. who are appointed to meet upon it on Thursday next, at Two, in the Painted Chamber; and Yorke is to have Notice of it, and to be there present.
Persons infected with the Plague.
The House being moved, That some good Order might be made touching those that are infected with the Plague, videlicet, to have some Mark on their Doors, as others may be warned thereof, and to have Watchmen appointed (as heretofore hath been used), not to permit the Infected to go abroad, and some Maintenance to be provided for the Poor that are infected;
It was referred to these Lords under-named, to draw up an Order concerning the same: videlicet,
E. of Warwick.
E. of Clare.
L. Viscount Say et Seale.
L. Bp. of Durham.
L. Bp. of Rochester.
To meet in the Council Chamber at Whitehall, at Two this Afternoon.

And, That the Lords shall meet here in the House Tomorrow Morning, and go from hence to the Collegiate Church of Westm.
Dominus Custos Magni Sigilli declaravit præsens Parliamentum continuandum esse usque in diem Lunæ, 4m diem instantis Julii, hora 8a, Dominis sic decernentibus.
Order concerning Persons infected with the Plague.
"The Order made by the Lords Committees this First of July, post meridiem, touching the Infected in London and the Places adjoining.
"The Lords of the Higher House of Parliament, taking Notice of the great Abuse generally committed in and about the Liberties of London and Westm. by not keeping the ancient and laudable Orders for the preventing the spreading of the Infection of the Plague, as the marking of the Places infected upon the Door, by which other Persons have Notice given of the Danger of that Place, as likewise a Watchman continually to attend at the Door, to the End that none may come in or out, and that necessary Sustenance and Provision may be supplied to the Persons within; have Resolved, That, first their strict Commandment be entered in this House, for the exact Performance of these good Orders above-mentioned, and all other which may conduce to the suppressing of the Infection from further increasing; and that after, if all whom it may concern do not, in their several Jurisdictions and Precincts, in and near the Cities of London and Westm. after Notice, use all possible Endeavours, with Care and Diligence, to that good End, that then exemplary Punishment shall be inflicted upon the superior Officers, to the Terror of others.
"And for this Purpose, the Clerk of this Great Council hath Commandment to send forth Copies of this Order, examined by him, to the Lord Mayor of the City of London; the Lord Wentworth, for his Precincts in Stepney and Hackney; the Dean of Westm. and Justices of Westm. for Westminster; the Chancellor of the Dutchy, for that Liberty; the Justices of the Peace of Surrey, for their Precincts adjacent to the City of London; and the Justices of the Peace of Midd. in their Precincts adjacent to the City of London and Westm."
