And the said Letter, being read by the Clerk, was ordered to lie on the Table.

Clavering's Bill:

Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act to enable James Clavering Junior Esquire to make Sale of his Estate at Tanfield, in the County of Durham, freed from the Uses and Trusts in the said James Clavering's Marriage Settlement; and to settle his Estate at Hallbill, in the said County, to the same Uses."

The Question was put, "Whether this Bill shall pass?"

To carry down the said Bill, and desire their Concurrence thereunto.

Pagett's Bill.

The Earl of Clarendon reported from the Lords Committees to whom the Bill, intituled, "An Act for vesting in Trustees a Moiety of divers Manors and Lands in Essex, belonging to Thomas Pagett Esquire and Mary his Wife, to enable them to convey the same according to Articles for the Sale thereof," was committed: "That they had considered of the said Bill, and found the Allegations thereof to be true; that the Parties concerned had given their Consents; and that the Committee had gone through the said Bill, and made some Amendments thereunto."

Which being read by the Clerk:

His Lordship further reported, "That, the said Bill being for selling Lands in one Place, and buying Lands in another, the Committee had observed, That the Standing Order of this House, of the 16th of February 1705, had not been duly complied with; no Lands having been contracted for, or purchased, in Lieu of those intended to be sold."

And the said Order being read:

It is Ordered, That the said Bill be re-committed to the same Committee; to meet To-morrow Morning; to report to the House the Reasons, if any appear, why the said Bill should pass, without an Agreement actually made for a Purchase of Lands, in Lieu of those intended to be sold, as is directed to be done by the said Standing Order.

Mutiny Bill.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for punishing Mutiny and Desertion; and for the better Payment of the Army and their Quarters."

Ordered, That the said Bill be read a Second Time on Saturday next.

Callicoes to prohibit, Bill:

The House (according to Order) resumed the adjourned Debate which arose on Saturday last, upon the Report then made from the Committee of the whole House to whom the Bill, intituled, "An Act to preserve and encourage the Woollen and Silk Manufactures of this Kingdom; and for the more effectual employing the Poor, by prohibiting the Use and Wear of all printed, painted, stained, or dyed Callicoes, in Apparel, Household-stuff, Furniture, or otherwise, after the Twenty-fifth Day of December One Thousand Seven Hundred and Twenty-two (except as therein is excepted)," was committed: "That the Committee had gone through the said Bill, without any Amendment."

And it being proposed, in the 19th Line of the First Press, "To leave out the Word ["Two"], and insert the Word ["One"]; in order to shorten the Time of the Commencement of the said Bill:"

After Debate;

The Question was put, "Whether the Word ["Two"] shall stand Part of the Bill?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Protest against rejecting an Amendment.

"Dissentient.

"1. Because it appears to us very extraordinary, and, as we believe, is unprecedented, that any Bill of this Nature should not take Effect till so long after the passing thereof; and even almost a Year after the Parliament in which it passed must legally determine.

"2. We think the Delay in this Case the more unreasonable, the Miseries of the People proposed to be remedied by this Bill requiring a speedy Redress; and, after the Loss of the like Bill the last Session, deferring the Relief for near Two Years longer, may, we fear, reduce the poor Manufacturers to such Want, as may endanger the public Peace, or else make as many as can turn themselves to other Business, to the Ruin of the Woollen Manufactures of this Kingdom.

"3. We conceive that, till the Bill shall take Place, it will rather encourage, than hinder, the buying of printed Callicoes, which is at present obstructed by the Apprehension of a much nearer and stricter Prohibition; but when it shall be known not to extend to any such Callicoes which shall be made up in Furniture before the Twenty-fifth of December One Thousand Seven Hundred and Twenty-two, and that the same may be continued in Use till worn out, it cannot but be a great Inducement to the People to furnish themselves therewith.

"4. We do not think it improbable, considering the mighty Influence the great Companies may have on public Affairs, but that Attempts may be made, even before the Provisions of the Act take Place, to repeal it; and we cannot take upon us to determine what the Sense of a new Parliament may be on this Subject.

"5. And we apprehend, the deferring the Remedy of the Mischiefs set forth in the Preamble of the Bill, for so long a Time, may disappoint, in great Mcasure, the Hopes which the People of this Kingdom have so justly entertained, of having an End put to the Difficulties the Woollen Manufactures lie under, in this Session of Parliament.

Pagett's Bill.

The Earl of Clarendon reported from the Lords Committees to whom the Bill, intituled, "An Act for vesting in Trustees a Moiety of divers Manors and Lands in Essex, belonging to Thomas Pogett Esquire and Mary his Wife, to enable them to convey the same, according to Articles for the Sale thereof," was re-committed, in order to report the Reasons, if any appear, why the said Bill should pass, without an Agreement actually made for a Purchase of Lands in Lieu of those intended to be sold, as is directed to be done by the Standing Order of this House:

"That the Committee, upon the said Re-commitment, have considered more particularly the Nature and Circumstances of this Case; and offer to your Lordships the Reasons following:

"That the Estate, intended by the Bill to be sold, is an undivided Estate; which, if sold in Moieties, cannot be sold to so great an Advantage as when sold entire, which is now the Case.

"That the Price, for which this Estate is agreed to be sold, far exceeds any Price that could have been got at any other Time than that at which the Contract was made; by which Contract, a Decree in Chancery, or an Act of Parliament, was agreed to be obtained, and the Conveyances executed, by the Twenty-fifth of June next; in Default whereof, the said Contract is to be void, which would be much to the Prejudice of the Family; whereas the Sale will be greatly to its Advantage; the Price contracted for being far above the Value of the Lands settled, were they now to be sold.

"That there is no Prospect of finding an Estate within the Time limited by the Articles; and had an Estate been bought at the Time of the Sale, the Price would have been so great, as that the Benefit arising to the Family by the said Sale would have been taken away. And in regard it is intended by the Bill, that the Money arising by the said Sale is to be lodged in the Hands of Trustees, who are the Earl of Uxbridge and the Lord Guilford, till a convenient Purchase can be found of an Estate to be settled to the same Uses, as that agreed to be sold:

"The Committee are of Opinion, for the Reasons aforementioned, that it is reasonable the said Bill should pass."

Which Report, being read by the Clerk, was agreed to by the House.

And a Motion being made, "That the Standing Order of this House, for the Reasons mentioned in the said Report, may be dispensed with in this Case."

It is Ordered, That this House will take the said Motion into Consideration To-morrow; and the Lords to be summoned.
