by the Lords Committees for Privileges to be presented
unto the King, which was read, in hæc verba: videlicet,
Petition to the King touching the Earl of Arundel.
"May it please Your most Excellent Majesty,
"Whatever our Care or Desire is to preserve our
Right of Peerage; yet it (fn. 1) is far from our Thoughts
either to distrust or to press any Thing that stands not
with the Affection and Duty of most loyal and loving
Subjects; and therefore, in all Humility, we cast
ourselves before Your Majesty; assuring ourselves, in
that Sacred Word of a King, that with all possible Conveniency Your Majesty will please either to restore the
Peer to his Place in Parliament, or express such a
Cause as may not infringe our Privilege."
Which was generally approved of; and Ordered to
be presented unto His Majesty by the whole House.
And the Earl of Carlile and the Lord Carleton to go presently, and know the King's Pleasure when they shall
attend His Majesty.
Who, being returned, reported, That His Majesty
hath appointed this Afternoon, at Two of the Clock,
for the same.
Duke of Buckingham's Counsel.
The Lord President also reported, That the said Committee for Privileges, etc. think fit that the Duke of
Buckingham's Request be allowed, for Serjeant Richarson,
Serjeant Crewe, and Serjeant Damporte to be of his
Counsel (though the King's Serjeants), if His Majesty
shall be pleased to give them Leave.
After long Debate; it was Ordered, The Serjeants
Oaths to be brought hither To-morrow, and the Judges
to be here then.
