PRAYERS.

Ly. Delawar, Privilege: Exigent against her to be vacated.

The Earl of Dorsett reported from the Committee of Privileges, "That their Lordships have considered of the Manner of vacating the Exigent and Outlawry against the Lady Dowager Delawar, a Peeress of this Realm, referred by the House to their Consideration. They have had the Opinion of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas therein; and find, that the said Exigent and Outlawry, being before Judgement, may be vacated by the Directions of the Judges of that Court (whereas, if it had been after Judgement, it must have been done by Writ of Error): Upon Consideration whereof, the Committee are of Opinion, That an Order of this House should be directed to the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas, requiring them to take Care and give Directions for the vacating the said Exigent and Outlawry, which ought not to have been issued against the Lady Dowager Delawar, according to their own Rules in that Court:

Brisco, the Attorney, to be disqualified from practising.

"And whereas Walcot Brisco, an Attorney of that Court, who sued out the said Writ of Exigent and Outlawry, hath, ever since Complaint thereof made to this House, absconded, thereby to avoid the Justice of this House; the Committee are of Opinion, That this House (if they think fit) direct that the Court of Common Pleas cause his Name to be struck out of the Book or Roll of Attornies of that Court, so as he may not henceforth practise as an Attorney therein."

ORDERED, That this House agrees to this Report, and orders the same accordingly.

2. "An Act to prevent certain Frauds and Abuses committed by Servants."

3. "An Act to enable the Daughters and Coheirs of Sir John Fitzjames to join in a Sale of Lands, for Payment of his Debts."

4. "An Act to enable Francis Couriney Esquire to join with Sir William Courtney his Father, in a Conveyance for settling their Estate."
