the Committees, having considered of the said Bill,
thought the same to be very good, and to deserve all Favour and Furtherance; howbeit they conceived, that

their Private Statutes and Ordinances, for such Things
as their Lordships the Committees thought meet to be
added to the said Bill; to which Opinion the Lords generally agreed, and thereupon

in this House, by the Bailiff of the Liberty of the
Dean and Chapter of the Collegiate Church of St. Peter of Westm. with a Return of the said Bailiff on the
Writ of Habeas corpus, for the bringing thither of the
said Prisoner; which Writ and Return were presently
read in the House by the Clerk of the Parliament;
whereupon, because it appeared that the said Sir David
Wood was taken and imprisoned, contrary to the Honour
and Privilege of this House, he was therefore, by Order
of the Court, set at Liberty, and discharged of the said
Arrest; and forasmuch as the said Bailiff of the Dean
and Chapter aforesaid alledged, that he was ignorant,
and knew not Sir David Wood to be privileged, or to
serve any Peer of this Realm, he was therefore discharged
of any further Attendance.

arrested, protested that he, at the Time of the said Arrest,
did not know that Taylor did serve any Lord of this
House; and Tailor confessing that himself, neither at
that Time nor in Three Days after, did alledge his Attendance of the said Lord, therefore Peirson and others
offending in the Cause were discharged of further Attendance in that Behalf.
Message from the Commons, concerning the Answer they received from the Lords, touching their Complaint against the Bp. of Lincoln.
Message from the Lower House, by Sir Roger Owen
and others, etc.
That the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the
Commons House of Parliament, having, in Answer of
their Complaint against the Lord Bishop of Lincolne,
received from the Lords of this House a Message to this
Effect: videlicet, That their Lordships would take it
very tenderly, that any unworthy Aspersion should be
laid on them of that House, whom their Lordships
so much respect, and with whom they desire to hold
all good Correspondence and Agreement; and having
perfectly remembered the full Effect of the Message
sent Yesterday from the Lords unto that House, wherein
he omitted few or no material Words, he proceeded
to deliver the Message committed to him in this Manner: videlicet, That, though the Knights, Citizens, and
Burgesses of the Commons House of Parliament, do
not take common and public Fame to be a sufficient
Ground, or Proof, by a legal and ordinary Course of
Justice to proceed against any Man, yet they hold it
enough to induce the Lords of this House to take the
Matter into Consideration; and, albeit they did not set
down the Words in particular, yet was the Matter, as
they conceive, sufficiently laid down, when in Effect
they said, that the Lord Bishop of Lincolne, in this
House, to dissuade the Lords from Conference with
them touching Impositions, termed the Prerogative, etc.
a Noli me tangere, insmuating that the Taking of the
Oath of Supremacy and Oath of Allegiance do restrain a Man from Treaty of that Business; also that
he doubted, in the Conference, would be used, or
spoken some undutiful and seditious Words, not fit for
their Lordships to hear; or Words to the like or worse
Effect: That now the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses
of the Commons House, do desire the Lords, if those
Words were not spoken, so to signify to that House;
otherwise, if they were used, then they hope their
Lordships will do as they promised: Lastly, from that
House, he further said, That they know not what
other Course they could have taken to bring the
Matter to Examination, nor otherwise, how any undutiful Speech, which may be uttered in this House, or
in theirs, can be called in Question.
The said Sir Roger Owen, being by the Lord Chancellor demanded, whether he had in Writing the Message so as aforesaid by him delivered, answered negatively.
That the Lords, having heard the Message which hath
been delivered to them from the Knights, Citizens,
and Burgesses of the Commons House, will presently
enter into Consideration thereof, as the Shortness of
Time will permit, and will return them Answer, if
they can, before they rise, or otherwise will send them
Word, they cannot. And afterwards returned unto the
Lower House, by Mr. Doctor Amie and Mr. Doctor
Ridley, this further Answer: videlicet,
That the Lords, having received from the Knights,
Citizens, and Burgesses of the Commons House of
Parliament, a Second Message, touching the Complaint
against the Lord Bishop of Lincoln, and thereupon
entering into Consideration of the Business, the said
Lord Bishop did humbly entreat that he might be heard
to expound himself; which being granted unto him,
he did make solemn Protestation, upon his Salvation,
that he did not speak any Thing with any evil Intention to that House, which he doth with all his Heart
duly respect and highly esteem; expressing, with many
Tears, his Sorrow that his Words were so misconceived
and strained further than he ever meant. Which submissive and ingenuous Behaving of himself gave Satisfaction to their Lordships, that, howsoever the Words
might found, his Intention was not as it hath been
taken; and their Lordships do assure the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the Commons House, that, if
they had conceived the Lord Bishop's Words to have
been spoken or meant to cast any Aspersion of Sedition
or Undutifulness upon that House (as it seemeth Report hath been carried to them), their Lordships would
forthwith have proceeded to the Censuring and Punishing thereof with all Severity. Nevertheless, their
Lordships think fit to signify, That, although they have
been careful at this Time to give them Contentment,
for the better expediting of His Majesty's Business, and
to retain all good Correspondence with them, yet their
Lordships are of Opinion, That hereafter no Member
of their House ought to be called in Question, when
there is no other Ground thereof but public and common Fame only.
Conference requested on the Bill for punishing the Abuse of the Sabbath.
Further, the Messengers last named did, as Part of
their Message, say unto the Lower House, That the
Lords do desire a Conference to be, between Committees of this House and the like of that House, touching the Bill of the Sabbath Day; that the Number
for the Lords should be Twenty-five; the Place the
Painted Chamber, the Time Saturday Morning at Eight
of the Clock, if it may stand with the Occasions of
that House. Which Motion of Conference was by the
Lower House accepted; who appointed to send Fifty
Committees accordingly, at the Time nominated for
that Service; whereupon the Lords appointed the Committee which before have met on this Case, being in
Number Twenty-four, to meet now also with them of
the Lower House, and unto them added the Lord
Archbishop of Canterb.
Bp. of Lincoln explains himself in regard to the Speech complained of by the Commons.
Memorandum, After the former of the Two Answers abovementioned was delivered, the Lord Bishop
of Lincolne, being by the Lords admitted to speak for
himself, did express, in Terms of great Passion, much
Grief that his Words had been misconstrued and strained
further than he ever meant; and that, by Occasion of
his Speech, their Lordships had been troubled, and the
Lower House taken Offence, whom he solemnly protested he did duly respect, and highly esteem; and
vowed that he did not speak any Thing with any evil
Intention to that House, which gave to their Lordships
good Satisfaction; whereupon, by common Consent,
the Lords, as a general Committee (without special
Words to adjourn the Court), did immedately enter
into Consideration what further Answer were fit to be
sent to the Lower House; and, after some small Time
spent therein, did refer the same to the Lord Archbishop of Cant. the Lord Chancellor, the Earl of
South'ton, and the Lord Chandois, who conceived the
Answer, last above set down; which being allowed by
the general Committee, was forthwith presented, and
read to their Lordships sitting in full Court, and by
them, so agreed and resolved on, was sent to the
Lower House as aforesaid.
