Commissioners to take Accompts, Bill.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for reviving and continuing an Act, intituled, An Act for the appointing Commissioners, to take, examine, and determine, the Debts due to the Army, Navy, and for Transport Service; and also an Account of the Prizes taken during the late War."

Upon reading the Petition of Edward Whitaker; praying to be heard, by his Counsel, against a Clause in the Bill, intituled, "An Act for reviving and continuing an Act, intituled, "An Act for the appointing Commissioners to take, examine, and determine, the Debts due to the Army, Navy, and for Transport Service; and also an Account of the Prizes taken during the late War:"

It is ORDERED, That the said Petition shall be, and is hereby, rejected.

Prime and Murray examined about Fuller.

Mr. Prime attending (as ordered) was called in; and told, "He was not thought guilty in himself; but their Lordships desire to ask him some Questions:" And therefore he was to be sworn.

And, being sworn, was asked, "What Sums of Money he had given to Fuller, and how much in the Whole; and whether he had any Money from other Persons to give Fuller?"

Mr. Prime said, "He had lent him some, he believed near Twenty Pounds; and had a Note from him; but had it not here."

Being asked, "If he knew any Thing about writing Fuller's Books?"

Said, "He knew not any Thing in his Books, save in the last; and that Mr. Buck was employed to print his last Book."

Being asked, "If he had a Prospect to be paid, otherwise than from Fuller's Sister in Kent?"

Said, "That was the principal Inducement; and that he knew him not till August last."

Being asked, "What other Motive he had to lend him the Money?"

Said, "He had no other Inducement than to be repaid; and that Fuller was recommended to him by Mr. Robert Murrey."

Then Mr. Robert Murray, attending at the Door, was called in; and asked, "If he knew any Person that furnished Fuller with Money?"

Said, "He had seen him with Plenty of Money; and that Mr. Prime furnished him with about Twenty Pounds; and that he desired Prime to furnish him therewith; and had known Fuller these Six Years past, and was in Troubles with him for Money he owed."

And being asked, "When he spoke to Prime, to lend him Money?"

Said, "About Four or Five Months since; and that Fuller pretended to be a great Favourite at Court, and thought him Rectus in Curia."

And being asked, "What Sum he desired Prime to lend him?"

Said, "It was about Two or Three Guineas."

And being asked, "If he knew that Fuller had been in the Pillory?"

Said, "He did. But he promised to pay this Money; and Mr. Fuller said, he had an Interest with both the Secretaries."

Then he withdrew.

A Message from the House of Commons, by Sir Rowland Gwyn and others:

Who brought up a Bill, intituled, "An Act for the Attainder of the pretended Prince of Wales, of High Treason;" to which they desire the Concurrence of this House.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for the Attainder of the pretended Prince of Wales, of High Treason."
