The Order being read, for taking into Consideration Her Majesty's Message, concerning augmenting Troops in The Low Countries:

Her Majesty's Message to this House, of the Seventh Instant, was read.

Then the House was moved, "To address Her Majesty, and thank Her for Her Majesty's Message to this House; and to advise Her Majesty, to take such Measures as may comply with the Memorials of the Dutch."

Address upon it, Committee to prepare.

Then it was proposed, "That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, to give Her the Thanks of this House, for communicating the several Letters and Memorials to this House; and humbly to advise Her Majesty, that, without any farther Loss of Time, She would come to an Agreement with The States General, for such an Augmentation of Forces as may disappoint the great and early Preparations of France, and effectually support and defend the Common Cause."

Agreed, That this be Part of the Address.

Then it was proposed, To leave out the Word ["farther"].

Agreed, That the Word ["farther"] do stand.

Agreed, That these Words shall be Part of the Instructions to the Committee to draw the Address.

Then it was moved, "Not only to address Her Majesty to break Correspondence by Letters with France and Spain; but that it be a Condition, That they would break all Correspondence by Letters with France and Spain, as hath been desired by England."

Then it was proposed to add these Words,

"Then it is the Opinion of this House, That Her Majesty's furnishing Her Part of Augmentation of Troops in The Low Countries will be ineffectual, unless all Correspondence with France or Spain, by Letters or otherwise, be totally prohibited."

To which the House agreed.

Then Lords Committees were appointed, to draw an humble Address, to be presented to Her Majesty, to give Her the Thanks of this House, for communicating the several Letters and Memorials to this House; and humbly to advise Her Majesty, "That, without any further Loss of Time, She would come to an Agreement with The States General, for such an Augmentation of Forces as may disappoint the great and early Preparations of France, and effectually support and defend the common Cause: And that it is the Opinion of this House, That Her Majesty's furnishing Her Part of the Augmentation of the Troops in The Low Countries will be ineffectual, unless all Correspondence with France or Spain, by Letters or otherwise, be totally prohibited;" and report to the House.
