Message from the Commons, by Sir Edward Cooke and others:
Message from the H.C. concerning entering the Petition of Right in the Journal, etc.
The Message consisted of Two Parts. The First, concerning the Petition of Right exhibited to His Majesty by both Houses: That His Majesty's Answer thereunto hath caused an Expression of exceeding great Joy throughout the whole Kingdom; and, that this Joy might be made perpetual, to the Honour of the King and Comfort of His People, the Commons were in Consultation amongst themselves to move their Lordships, That the said Petition, with the Answer, might be entered in both Houses; that it might be inrolled in all Courts of Justice in Westm. Hall, for a Mirror to the Judges; and that it might be printed amongst the Statutes of this Session. But, before they could come to move their Lordships to join with them in desiring the King that all this might accordingly be done, they were prevented by His Majesty's Gracious Message to the same Effect; of which they have already made an Entry in their House; and the Commons desire that the same Message might be entered here also; and then all the rest will necessarily follow.
Concerning the King's Warrant for printing Doctor Manwaring's Book, affixed to it.
2. The Second Part of their Message concerned Doctor Manwaring's Book. (fn. 3) They said, they found His Majesty's Command set upon the First Leaf, to warrant the Printing of that Book, which they had Cause to suspect, because they found those Words struck out in the Original, yet stood still in the Printed Book; and they conceived the Printer durst not do it without Warrant. They therefore desired their Lordships to examine by what Means this Special Command was derived from His Majesty to the Printer; and, when their Lordships have found the Party or Parties who gave the Warrant, the Commons demand to have him or them punished with as much Severity, or more, as Manwaringe himself.
The Lords do unanimously agree, That His Majesty's said Message for the entering, the inrolling, and printing of the said Petition and Answer, shall be entered here, as is desired. And concerning the Examination who gave the Warrant for printing of Doctor Manwaring's Book, their Lordships will take (fn. 4) it into Consideration, and do that therein which shall be fit.

Whereupon the Duke of Buckingham signified unto their Lordships with what Care and Industry he had endeavoured to bring the said Reinde before their Lordships; but he is so apprehensive of their Censure, which he deserves, that he cannot be found: Yet his Grace said, he doubted not but to bring him To-morrow Morning; and desired their Lordships to proceed, notwithstanding, now in their Sentence against him, and with the more Severity because he had so often deceived his Grace.

And it was then also Ordered, That the King's Principal Secretary shall write unto His Majesty's Agent in The Low Countries, That he signify this Censure of the Lords unto all the Colonels and Captains there; and that His Majesty's Pleasure is, they give no Entertainment unto the said Reynde.

Message to the Bishop of London, to know by what Authority he signified the King's Command for printing Doctor Manwaring's
Upon the Message of the Commons this Day to the House, it was Ordered by their Lordships, Richard Badger, who printed Doctor Manwaring's Book, to be presently brought before their Lordships; who, being brought to the Bar, sworn, and examined, answered, That Doctor Manwaringe himself delivered him his Two Sermons to be printed, with the Bishop of London's Signification to that Effect, under his Lordship's Hand. And when the Book was fully printed, Doctor Manwaringe brought the Title of his said Book, written with his own Hand, as it is now printed. Whereupon the said Printer was dismissed at this Time. And the Earl of Essex and the Lord Bishop of Lincoln were sent from the House, to the Bishop of London, to understand from his Lordship what Authority he had for signifying His Majesty's Special Command for the Printing of Doctor Manwaring's Book.
