holden with the Committees of the Lower House, at
the Meeting with them this Afternoon in Conference,
concerning the Four Articles, or Points, of Matters Ecclesiastical, which they formerly propounded to the
Lords, and in what Manner the said Points were severally distributed, to be handled by certain of the Bishops
selected for that Purpose: videlicet,
1. Touching Silencing of Ministers, by the said Lord
2. Concerning the Multiplicity of Commissions, by
the Bishops of Winchester and Exceter.
3. Touching Citations, by the Bishops of Bathe and

and accordingly Resolved by the House, That it is not
intended, or to be expected, that this Day Answer shall
be made, That the Lords will join, or not join, with
the Lower House, in Petition, or how far forth they
shall think convenient to join; but that the Lords the
Bishops are this Day to make Answer unto the Four
several Points that were declared by those that spake in
the Committee of the Lower House the last Day; and
that thereupon the Lords Committees, making Reference
to the Higher House, it may there (as the Arguments
and Answers shall be liked), by common Consent, be
considered and resolved, what Answer is to be made, for
joining or not joining in Petition; and that the Lords
the Bishops are left to follow such Course in Answer as
they shall agree among themselves, for distributing the
Parts of Answer; always reserving the Determination
and Resolution unto the full Consent of the House; and
