Heads for a Conference about Propositions being sent to the King.
"The King having so often desired to be heard; and the Commissioners of Scotland so often pressing for a Personal Treaty; and the Kingdom also long expecting to be freed of their great Pressures and Burdens by some speedy Settlement of the Government: The Lords do desire, that the Two Houses may do that which shall discharge their Duty, in respect of the Safety both of Kingdom and Parliament, and yet not refuse to hear the King in such Things as may be subjected unto Debate: They therefore do propose, That, these Four Propositions herewith offered unto you, which they conceive do most immediately concern the Safety and Security of the Kingdom and Parliament being put into Bills, the King may be desired to give His Royal Assent unto them; which being accordingly by them done, they do conceive that the most satisfactory Way, and that which is most likely to produce a speedy Settlement of our present Distractions, will be for the Houses to admit of a Treaty upon the rest of the Propositions."
