Ly. Reade versus Sir J. Reade.

This Day Sir John Reade personally appeared at the Bar, according to the Order of this House, and delivered his Answer in Writing to the Petition of Dame Allissimon his Wife.

Which Answer being read; after some Debate, it was propounded, "That it might be put to the Question, Whether Sir John Reade should be asked, whether he will obey the Order of the Ecclesiastical Court?"

And the Question being put, "Whether this Question shall be put to him?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Upon this, Sir John Reade was called in; and the Speaker, in the Name of the House, asked him, "Whether he would obey the Order of the Ecclesiastical Court?"

His Answer was to this Effect: "That he had obeyed the Order of the Ecclesiastical Court, having suffered the Penalty of Excommunication, for not paying Two Hundred Pounds; and he could not in Honour go back."

The House, not being satisfied with this Answer, did order, That Sir John Reade should be called in again, and told, "That he had trifled with the House in his Answer; therefore the Lords had ordered, That he shall have Time till To-morrow Morning, to give his positive Answer to this Question, videlicet, Whether he will obey the Decree of the Ecclesiastical Court, in allowing Alimony to the Lady Reade his Wife, in order to the bringing of the Cause between them to a Hearing, upon the Merits thereof in that Court? And that he shall have the Protection of this House, for his safe coming, staying, and returning during the Dependance of his Business in this House; whereof all Persons concerned are to take Notice, and yield Obedience hereunto accordingly."

This Order was declared to Sir John Reade, at the Bar, by the Lord Keeper.

Sequestrations in Chancery.

ORDERED, That To-morrow Morning this House will take into further Consideration the Report concerning the issuing of Sequestrations upon Estates out of the Chancery.

Adjourn.
