E. of Pemb. Leave to come to London for his Health.
The Speaker signified to the House, "That it is the Desire of the Earl of Pembrooke, that he might have Leave to come to London, for recovering of his Health, he being at this Time very ill-disposed in his Health."
Order for Preservation of Game.

Letter from the Commissioners with the King, that He is come to Holdenby.
By the Providence of God, which hath gone along with us from the First Step to the last in this Journey, the King is come well to Holdenby. Colonel Graves, who commanded the Convoy, hath managed his Trust with great Care and Vigilancy, and hath performed extraordinary Duty in his own Person; which we hold ourselves obliged to represent unto you. We have here Nine Hundred Horse and Dragoons, which, quartering within a little Compass, cannot but (fn. 1) be very burdensome to the Country; and therefore intreat your Lordship to move the Houses to give special Directions for their Pay. We are here now, after Five Weeks spent in this Service, attending their further Orders, according to the Commands laid upon us in our First Instructions. Our Hope and earnest Desire is, that, our Emplovment being come to this Period, you will be pleased to move their Lordships, to enjoin us to wait upon them at London; which we shall acknowledge as a very great Favour done to,
