not fully understood in this, that their Lordships intend,
by a Committee of their whole House, to satisfy His
Majesty herein; and, therefore, their Lordships do now
signify the same again unto them, for that they do think
it most proper, as the Narration was made unto both
Houses, so both do join (if they so please) in their Justification thereof unto His Majesty.
That they have taken this into their Consideration,
and render their Lordships all due Thanks for their
good Correspondency, and will return their Answer by
Messengers of their own.
The Duke of Buckingham put their Lordships in Mind
of the Weight of this great Business, and that a speedy
Resolution thereof is necessarily required; for that Time
is precious, which the Enemy will not pretermit; and,
if we should lose the Benefit of this Spring, it would

And they have Power to adjourn their Meeting
from Time to Time, as they shall see Cause.
Their Lordships also sent this Message to the Commons, by the Master of the Rolls and the Lord Chief
Message to the House of Commons, for a Conference.
The Lords, taking into their Consideration the great
Business whereof His Majesty demands their Advice, do
find the weighty and urgent Necessity thereof to be such,
that they desire to expedite the same with all convenient
Speed; and, therefore, they do pray a Conference about
the same, by a Committee of both Houses, in the Hall
at Whitehall, To-morrow, at Two in the Afternoon, if
it may so stand with the Occasions of that House.
Answered: They have taken into deep Consideration
the Weightiness of this Cause, and are very willing to
confer with their Lordships at the Time and Place required, if it may so stand with their Conveniency; if
they shall find it cannot, they will send Word to their
Lordships, by Messengers of their own, To-morrow

Message from the House of Commons, concerning the Spanish Ambassador's Charge against the Duke of Buckingham.
The Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the House of
Commons, received a Message from your Lordships,
touching the Complaint made by the Spanish Ambassador against the Duke of Buck. and the Course which
your Lordships intend to take for the clearing of his
Grace unto His Majesty.
They are very willing to confer with your Lordships
herein; the Time and Place, and Number of Committees, they humbly leave unto your Lordships.
The Messengers being retired, and, after the Lords
had agreed of their Answer, called in again;
The Lord Keeper, sitting in his Place, said: The
Lords do take this Message and Correspondency of the
House of Commons in good Part, and have appointed
a Committee of Twelve to meet with a Committee of
theirs, in the Painted Chamber, presently, if they

of Buck. for performing his Duty in his late Narration
to both Houses, is complained of to His Majesty, by
the Spanish Ambassador, with such an Aspersion on his
Grace, that he required his Head to satisfy the Honour
of the King of Spaine (his Master); of which Aspersion
this House, by a general Vote, hath not only quitted
his Grace, but justified his Action herein, and intend to
signify the same unto His Majesty by a Committee of
their whole House, to the End that his Grace may be
encouraged to proceed in his faithful Service to the
Unto which they of the Commons answered, That (as
if the Two Houses were Twins) what the one hath
thought, said, and done, the other hath thought, said,
and done the same; and they have approved, That the
Duke of Buckingham delivered nothing, in his said Narration, but what he was led unto by the Matter itself;
wherein his Grace was so far from Transgression, that
he deserves Thanks and Honour; and they are desirous
to join with your Lordships, with a Committee of their
whole House, to signify all this unto His Majesty; and
they added, how sensible they are, that any ungodly
Person should relate their Secrets abroad, which they
desire may be discovered, if it be possible.
