Resolved, &c. That this House doth agree with the Lords in the Paper to be sent to the Scotts Commissioners, to acquaint them with the Intentions of the Houses, to make once more Application to the King, as it is now altered: And that it be this Day communicated to the Scotts Commissioners, by the Members, of both Houses, that are of the Committee of both Kingdoms.
