A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Mr. Churchhill and others; who brought up these Bills following, wherein their Lordships Concurrence is desired:

2. "An Act to enable the King's Majesty to make Leases, Grants, and Copies of Offices, Lands, and Tenements, and Hereditaments, Parcel of His Highness' Dutchy of Cornwall, or annexed to the same; and for Confirmation of Leases and Grants already made."

L. Monson brought to the Bar, and heard about it;

Then William Lord Mounson was brought to this Bar; and, having kneeled as a Delinquent, the Speaker told him, "That a Bill is brought up from the House of Commons, in which Bill it is to be enacted, That he shall lose and forfeit all his Lands and Goods, and undergo such Pains and Penalties as are therein expressed, for fitting in that traiterous pretended High Court of Justice, whereby His late Majesty was sentenced to be murdered; and to know what he can say why he should not undergo those Penalties and Forfeiture."

He confessed he was drawn in and constrained Once to fit in that pretended Court; for which he was heartily sorry. And his further Desires were expressed in a Petition which is before their Lordships, which he humbly desired may be taken into Consideration.

and Sir H. Mildmay.

After this, Sir Henry Mildmay was in the same Manner brought to the Bar. And the Speaker told him likewise what Pains, Penalties, and Forfeitures, were to be enacted against him, by an Act from the House of Commons; and demanded what he could say for himself, why the Bill should not pass against him.

He confessed he sat Once in that Court, and no more, and was heartily sorry for the same; and begged for Mercy.

Wallop's Pet. about it.

Also a Petition was presented, in Behalf of Mr. Wallop, being sick and not able to come in Person; which being read, he therein confessed he Once sat in that pretended High Court, for which he is heartily sorry.
