PRAYERS.

Sir Wm. Beversham reprimanded, for refusing the E. of Plymouth's Testimony upon Honour.

This Day Sir William Beversham, according to the Order of this House Yesterday, did appear, to receive the Reprehension of this House, for his Offence, in refusing to take the Answer of the Earl of Plymouth, without laying a Bible before him, and not upon his Honour only.

He kneeling at the Bar; the Lord Keeper, by Command of House, did reprehend him severely, for breaking the Privilege of Peerage, and of this House, in the Case of the Earl of Plymouth; and told him, "He must ask the Pardon of this House, and of the Earl of Plymouth, for his so doing."

He confessed his Fault, and craved the Pardon of this House and the Earl of Plymouth; promising never to commit the like Offence for the future.

Upon which, he was discharged.

Which Report the House approved of.

Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, "An Act for settling the Revenue on His Majesty for His Life, which was settled on His late Majesty for His Life."

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