The Petition presented by the Commons, touching the displacing of Recusants, was read 2a vice.

Message to the Commons, by Mr. Serjeant Crewe and Mr. Attorney General: That the Lords desire a present Conference, in the Painted Chamber (with the former Committee), touching the Petition which their Lordships received of them Yesterday.

Answer.

Answered: They will attend accordingly.

In the mean Time, the Lord Archbishop of Cant. the Lord Steward, the Lord Chamberlain, the Earl of South'ton, the Lord Sheffeild, and the Lord Haughton, did withdraw themselves into the Prince's Lodgings, and set down in Writing the said Answer to be given unto the Commons touching the said Petition; which was read to the House, in hæc verba:

Answer touching the said Petition.

"That we take great Contentment in the Concurrence which hath been between the Two Houses, from the Beginning of this Session; and which we doubt not but shall continue to the End.

"That what, in their Petition concerning Popish Recusants hath been desired, is wholly allowed, and approved of by us; and that our Hearts do go with that which is propounded by them.

"But that our Way in Judicature (as they know) is, to proceed upon Oath; and to hear the Parties Desence, which the Shortness of Time in this Case can in no Means permit.

"And that, if we should publicly go with a Committee of both Houses to the King, we should strike deep into the Reputation of the Parties, and give His Majesty and the whole World Occasion to think that we did both judge and condemn before we had heard.

"Notwithstanding that, we do incline, if they like of it, to move the Prince his Highness privately to acquaint His Majesty with this, as with a Matter of State; not doubting but His Majesty will take it into His grave and prudent Consideration, so that such Effect (as we trust) is like to follow, as will give us all good Contentment."

And then (this being read and approved) the Lords Committees went to the Conference.

Report from the Conference.

And being returned from the Conference, the Lord Archbishop of Cant. reported to the House, That the Committees had signified their Lordships Answer unto the Committee of the Commons, touching their Petition for Recusants; and that the Commons had declared the same to their House, who returned Thanks unto their Lordships for approving of the said Petition; and rendered most humble Thanks unto the Prince his Highness, that he is pleased (as of himself) to intimate their Request unto His Majesty; and that they hope it will receive a gracious Answer.
