Message from the H. C. with Ordinances.
A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Sir Robert Harley Knight, and others:
To desire their Lordships Concurrence in divers Ordinances.
The Answer returned was:
That this House will send an Answer by Messengers of their own.
Widow Ferrer's Petition, for her Husband's Pay.
The Petition of the Widow of Constance Ferrer, lately slain at the Siege of Banbury, was read; shewing, "That there is a great Arrear due to her Husband for his Pay; and she, being now in great Want, desires some Money for her Relief."
Hereupon this House Ordered, To recommend this Petition to the House of Commons.
Wharfingers, &c. coming through Palace Yard.
Ordered, That the Cause concerning the Woodmongers and the Brewers, touching their coming with their Carts through The Ould Pallace, shall be heard on Friday Morning, by Counsel on both Sides; and Mr. Serjeant Whitfield and Mr. Serjeant Fynch are hereby assigned to be of Counsel for the King in this Business, and to receive the Advice of Sir Randall Crew therein.
Message to the H. C. about it; and with Mrs. Fener's Petition.
A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir Edward and Mr. Page:
1. To deliver the Petition of the Widow of Major Ferrer to them, with Recommendations, for some Means to supply her Necessities.
2. To let the House of Commons know, that this House did not refuse to hear the Brewers and Woodmongers concerning their Way through The Ould Pallace with their Carts, but were in a Course to give them a Hearing, and do them Justice; and that their Lordships have appointed Friday next for hearing the Business; and whereas it is alledged, that there hath been Money taken for the Permission of the Carts to come through The Pallace, their Lordships gave no such Authority; and their Lordships do think fit that Enquiry be made after such Persons that have misinformed One House concerning the Proceedings of the other.
Propositions for a Peace.
The House was adjourned into a Committee during Pleasure, and the Lords took the Propositions into Consideration.
The House was resumed.
