said Sir Henry Sherley against the said Earl, and many
of them proved by Witnesses.
These being reported; the said Earl of Huntingdon

the House intended to lay no heavier Censure on the
said Sir Henry Sherley, than such, as there might ensue
a Reconciliation between him and the said Earl.
Sir Henry Sherley sent for.
It was Ordered, The said Sir Henry Sherley to be
here at the Bar, to give the Earl of Huntingdon Satisfaction; and to be recorded here, that the House hath

read openly at the next Assizes, unless the Earl of
Huntingdon shall be contented to have the same forborne.
The Earl Marshal is appointed to set down in Writing
the Manner of this Satisfaction.

Conference touching the Petition of Right reported.
"That the Commons denied to treat of Accommodation by a Committee, as was propounded by their
Lordships; for which they gave Three Reasons."
"1. That the Business is of Great Weights, as appears by the long Deliberation thereof, both in their
House and here; and their Strength consists in their
whole Body, as a Sheaf of Arrows."
"2. Their House is confident, that the Petition,
rightly taken, needeth no Accommodation."
"3 Their great Desire to give Satisfaction to His
Majesty and to His Pressing Occasions with all possible
Speed; which will be deferred by this Treaty of
"Wherefore they desired their Lordships to consider
of it, and to be pleased to consider of the Clearness
of their Petition."
His Lordship further reported, "That the Lords
came but with Ears; their Lordships would return to
their House; and, if their Debate were long, they
would send them Word."
After some Time spent in Debate hereof, a Message
was sent to the Commons, by Mr. Serjeant Crewe and
Mr. Attorney General:
That the Lords have fallen into Debate of this great
Business, which will take up long Time, so that they
shall not need to expect to hear from their Lordships.
The House was put into a Committee, for the more
Free Debate of this Business.
Resumed again, and the Accommodation thereof referred to the former Committee; who withdrew, and
concluded of nothing.
