Message from the Assembly, with a Draught of a Letter to the Assembly of Scotland, for Approbation:
To acquaint the House, "That they have received divers Letters from the Assembly of Scotland, to which they have returned no Answer, by reason they cannot do it without the Leave of either House of Parliament: And Mr. Rutherford, One of the Assembly of Divines sent from them, is now going away; and they have framed a Draught of a Letter, which they offer to their Lordships Consideration, whether they may send it or not."
Not approved of.
And the Speaker returned then this Answer, "That the Lords do not like the Draught of this Letter; but, if the Assembly of Divines here will frame a Letter, expressing nothing but Courtesies, Civilities, and Respects, to the General Assembly of Scotland, and to Mr. Rutherford, and tender the same to this House, their Lordships will consider of it."
