"May it please your most Honourable Lordships,
"Your Lordships having resolved the Order touching Pinckney, of the 28th of May 1624, to be an Order of that most Honourable House, truly and justly entered; I do most willingly acknowledge as much; and am very sorry that, through a weak Memory, and Information of some Parties interested, who pretended to have searched the Clerk's Book the 29th of May 1624, and to have found there at that Day no Ground at all for any such Order, I have had in my Thoughts some Scruples to the contrary, to the offending of that most Honourable House, or any one of the Lords of the Sub-committee; who (as I now understand) have subscribed the said Order. And I do humbly desire your most Honourable Lordships in general, and those Noble Lords in particular, to pardon the Error I have herein committed; and I shall pray unto God to bless and prosper your most Honourable Lordships.
Which Acknowledgement their Lordships all accepted, in full Satisfaction from the said Lord Bishop.
