Message from the H. C.
Message from the Lower House, by Sir Edwin
Sandes and others:
Grievances in the Spanish Trade.
That there hath been of late a Petition of sundry
Merchants of the Realm, directed to His Majesty and
the High Court of Parliament, and first exhibited to
the Lower House, containing a grievous Complaint of
intolerable Wrongs and Injuries that have been offered
them by the Subjects of Spayne (in all Parts Abroad
where they trade), as well in Taking or unjust Detaining of their Goods, as in bereaving of them of their
Liberties, and in cruel Usage of divers of them, either
by committing of them to the Galleys, or by other Tortures; that it hath pleased the Lower House to take
the said Complaint to Heart, and have examined the
same, so far forth as they could, not being able to take
Examination of the adverse Parties, being of a Foreign
Nation; but nevertheless they find that the Particulars
of the said Complaint, being in Number Twenty at the
least, are for the most part very just, insomuch as
thereby they conceive that a Dishonour is offered to
His Majesty, Wrong to the Subjects, and Disreputation
to the State; that thereupon they, having entered into
Consideration of Redress, have thought meet (in regard the Matter concerneth a Foreign Nation that is in
Amity with His Majesty and this State) to forbear to proceed therein in any (fn. *) other Course than by Petition to His
Majesty; and do earnestly desire, that the Lords will be
pleased to join with them in this Petition; and, for the
better Information and Proceeding therein, will allow of
a Conference with Committees of the Lower House, at
such Time and Place as their Lordships shall think fit to
Answer, That, because the Lords do find the Matter
to be of great Weight, both in respect of the Form
and Substance, they will therefore take some Time to
enter into a mature Deliberation thereof, and then return them Answer by some Messengers of their own,
so soon as conveniently they may.
Ld. Chandois's Privilege. Butler arrested.
Upon Signification given unto the House, by
the Lord Compton, That one Nathaniell Butler, a
Servant in ordinary to the Lord Chandos, hath been
very lately arrested (in the Time of this Session of Parliament), upon an Action of Debt, at the Suit of one
Richard Crumes, and by the Procurement of Rafe
Ratcliffe, an Attorney of Furnevall's Inn, contrary to
the Honour and Privilege of the said High Court;
and that he yet remaineth under Restraint, in the Custody of, a Bailiff or Officer of the Sheriff of
Middlesex; it is Ordered, by the said Court, That a
Writ of Habeas Corpus shall be awarded, for the Removing of the said Nathaniell Butler out of the Custody
of the said Bailiff, and for the bringing of him before
the Lords, in the Upper House of Parliament, by the
said Sheriff of Middlesex, upon Wednesday next, the
20th of this Instant May, by Nine of the Clock in the
Morning; and that the Serjeant at Arms attending the
House shall then also bring before the Lords, in the
House, the abovementioned Richard Crumes and Rafe
Ratcliffe, together with Thomas Keene, the Undersheriff's Deputy of Middlesex, and Daniell Bishopp, a Bailiff, and Pitman that arrested the said Butler, and any others that assisted the said Arrest, to answer for their Contempt and Breach of Privilege of the
said High Court.
