"That whereas a General Impeachment hath been brought, by the House of Commons, against Theophilus Earl of Lincolne, James Earl of Suffolke, James Earl of Midd. George Lord Berkley, Francis Lord Willoughby, John Lord Hunsdon, and Wm. Lord Maynard; and a Day appointed by the Lords, at the Desire of the said House of Commons, to prosecute their Impeachment; which Day is now past above One Month since, and nothing hath been done by the House of Commons in further Prosecution of their said former Impeachment: The Lords, considering the dangerous Consequence of keeping the said Lords under Restraint for so many Months without any legal Proceeding against them, do order, That, if the House of Commons shall not prosecute their Impeachment against the aforesaid Lords by Friday next, then their Lordships will do therein according to the usual Course and Proceedings of Parliament."
