A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Mr. Crouch and others; who brought up a
Bill, intituled, "An additional Act for Explanation of

Hearth-money;" to which they desire their Lordships
Message to them, for a Conference about Amendments to the Bill for taxing Adventurers in the Fens; and to remind them of the Bill for Trial of Peers.
A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by

1. Whereas, by a Message sent to the Lords, the
House of Commons have returned to this House a Bill,
intituled, "An Act for taxing and assessing the Lands
of the Adventurers within the Great Level of the
Fens," together with their agreeing to the Amendments made by this House to the said Bill; the Lords
finding that the said Amendments are not entered into
the said Bill, according to the Intention of this House
and Agreement of the House of Commons, in these
Particulars, videlicet, in the 4th Skin, Line 5th, the
Words ["to Time,"] inserted more than in the Amendments; in the 23th and 24th Line, the Word ["Richard"]
is inserted Twice, instead of Once, before ["Marriott"];
in the 8th Skin, Line 10th, the Word ["non"] is inserted more than is in the Amendments. The Lords do
desire, that the House of Commons would give their
Lordships a Conference, To-morrow Morning, at Ten
of the Clock, in the Painted Chamber, to the End
that the said Amendments may be rectified according to
the Intentions of both Houses.
Also to put the House of Commons in Mind of
the Bill concerning the better regulating of the Trial
of the Peers of England, sent down to them some
Ly. Drummond, Sir A. Bateman, & al. versus the Hamburgh Company.
Next, this House took into Consideration what Judgement to give, in the Cause depending in this House, upon
the Petition of Dame Dorothy Dromond, Sir Anthony
Bateman, and others, Creditors of the Fellowship of
Merchants Adventurers of England, commonly called
or known by the Name of Hamborough Merchants,
having been heard by Counsel on both Sides at this
And, after a long and serious Debate thereof,
The Question being put, "Whether the Petitioners

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.
Then this House appointed these Lords following, to
consider in what Way and Manner the abovesaid Petitioners shall be relieved; whose Lordships have Power
