Subsidy by the Clergy.
HODIE 1a, 2a, et 3a
vice lecta est Billa, An Act for
Confirmation of the Subsidies granted by the Clergy.
Put to the Question, and Assented unto generally.
Sent to the Commons, by Mr. Justice Crooke and Mr.
Returned from the Commons.
Message from the King, touching the Recess.
The Lord President reported, That His Majesty, according to the earnest Desires of both House, hath
granted the Recess from Parliament to be on this Day.
Message sent to the Commons, by Mr. Attorney
General and Mr. Serjeant Damport:
Message to the House of Commons for Conference, to impart the said Message.
That the Lords have received His Majesty's Answer,
touching the Recess from Parliament, which they are
willing to impart unto them by a Committee of Four;
if the Commons shall think fit to appoint a Committee
of their House to meet, for that Purpose, in the Painted
Their Committee shall attend their Lordships presently.
Committee for the Conference.
Lords appointed for the Committee:
L. Bp. of London.
L. Cary of Lepp.
Earl of Suffolk's Privilege. Haine's Arrest.
Upon the Reading of the Petition of Thomas Haine,
Servant to the Right Honourable the Earl of Suffolke,
desiring to be relieved against John Parham, Esquire,
for putting him out of the Possession of his House and
Lands (at Martin's Town, in the County of Dorsett),
during the Time of Privilege of Parliament, a great
Part of the said Land being then sown by him with
It is Ordered, That the Examination of Breach of
Privilege be referred to the Lords Sub-committees for
Privileges, etc. at the next Access; and that the Lord
Keeper of the Great Seal do write unto Two of the next
Justices of the Peace, to sequester the Crop of Corn
sown by the Petitioner; and that the said Parham and
Haine do appear before the said Lords Sub-committees
at the next Access; and the Clerk to write unto the
said Parham to appear accordingly.
Message from the King, touching further Subsidies for carrying on the War.
The Lord Conway signified unto the Lords, "That
His Majesty takes Knowledge of the Two Subsidies
now granted unto Him, which He doth most graciously accept of; but the Necessities of the present
Affairs are such that they cannot rest there, but their
further Counsels are to be had therein. The late
King, of Famous Memory, was provoked, beyond His
Nature, to undertake a War, by breaking of the Two
Treaties of the Match and the Palatinate. It appeared then, by Computation, that the War to recover the Palatinate would cost Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds per Annum. Wherefore His Majesty,
considering the Necessities to uphold The Low Countries, and to prevent the Enterprize of the Emperor
from concluding with the Princes of Germany utterly
to exclude his Son-in-Law, levied an Army, under
Count Mansfeild, in which France, Savoy, and Venice
joined, for a War of Diversion. This procured the
Kings of Denmarke and Sweden, and the Princes of
Germany, to levy another Army, wherein His Majesty joins. Much more Money hath been spent in
these, and in preparing the Fleet, than the Subsidies
now and formerly granted came to. And yet the
Charges of Maunsfeild and Denmark's Armies, for
the upholding of The Low Countries, and setting out
of the Fleet, must be continued. Wherefore His
Majesty, considering the Danger of this Place, hath
granted a Recess, at their Requests; but His Necessities require their further Counsels herein."
All the Lords to attend at the next Access, to consider of the King's Demands.
The Lords, considering that His Majesty's Necessities (as was delivered by the Lord Conway) required so
sudden an Access to Parliament again, for their further
Counsels and Assistance therein, did Order, That the
House be fully attended, by all the Lords in general,
at the next Access; and Agreed, That the King be
moved, not to grant Licence unto any to be absent; and
declared their Opinion, That His Majesty's Proclamation, touching the Access, commanding the personal Appearance of the Lords at the Day and Place prefixed,
determines all former Licences to be absent, and their
Message to the Commons, by Mr. Attorney General and Mr. Serjeant Damport:
Message for the House of Commons to attend.
That His Majesty hath sent His Letters Patents of
His Royal Assent unto the Acts past this Parliament;
and a Commission for the Adjournment of the Parliament to a further Time.
That the Commons be pleased to come, with their
Speaker, to hear them read.
They will send an Answer, by Messengers of their
Message from the Commons, by the Lord Cavendish
Message from the House of Commons, concerning the Manner of the Adjournment.
That, whereas the Lords have sent them Word of
His Majesty's Letters Patents, for the Royal Assent,
and of His Commission to adjourn the Parliament, and
required them to come to hear them read; they will
most willingly attend, to hear the Letters Patents for
the Royal Assent; and humbly desire, that they may not
stay to hear the Commission read for the Adjournment;
but that they may (without Offence unto their Lordships) depart, to adjourn themselves, according to their
Use, and the Privilege of their House.
This said, the Messengers departed; and the Lords
Agreed, That the Commons might freely depart after
the Letters Patents for the Royal Assent is read.
The Commons being come, and their Speaker at the
Bar; he said:
Speaker's Speech upon presenting Money Bills.
"May it please your Lordships,
"The Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the Commons House of Parliament, as the First Fruits of their
Love, do humbly present Two Subsidies granted unto
His Majesty (whereof they crave Acceptance); together with divers Bills, unto which they desire His
Majesty's Royal Assent."
Message from the King, touching the Petition about Religion.
Then the Lord Keeper declared, "That he had a
short Message from His Majesty, to deliver unto the
Lords and Commons: That, whereas a Petition was
lately delivered him from both Houses, touching Religion, unto which He gave a present Gracious Answer; He is now pleased to return a more particular
Answer: videlicet, An Assurance of His Majesty's
real Performance of every Part of that Petition."
Parliament to be adjourned to Oxford.
His Lordship also declared, "That the Parliament is
to be adjourned this Day unto Oxford, on the First
of August next."
The Clerk read His Majesty's Letters Patents, directed unto the Lords and Commons, for His Royal Assent unto the Bills now past, in hæc verba: videlicet,
Commission for the Royal Assent to Bills.
"Charles, by the Grace of God, King of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland, Defender of the
Faith, etc. To Our Right Trusty and Right Wellbeloved the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and to

Our Loving Subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this Our present Parliament assembled, and severally indorsed by you, as

Acts and Ordinances, and to all Articles, Clauses, and
Provisions, in them contained. And be it fully Agreed
and Assented to all and singular the said Acts; willing that the said Acts, and every Article, Clause, Sentence, and Provision, in them contained, from henceforth, shall be of the same Strength, Force, and Effect, as if We had been personally present in the
said Higher House, and had openly and publickly,
in the Presence of you all, assented to the same,
And We do, by these Presents, (fn. ‡) declare and notify the same Our Royal Assent, as well to you
the said Lords Spiritual and Temporal and the
Commons aforesaid, as to all others whom it may
concern; commanding also, by these Presents, Our
Lord Keeper of Our Great Seal of England, to seal
these Our Letters Patents with Our Great Seal, and
to declare and notify this Our Royal Assent, in Our
Absence in the said Higher House, in the Presence
of you the said Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and
the Commons, in Our Parliament there to be assembled, for that Purpose. And the Clerk of Our
Parliament to indorse the said Acts with such Terms
and Words, in Our Name, as is requisite, and hath
been accustomed for the same; and also to inroll these
Our Letters Patents, and all and every the said Acts,
in the Parliament Roll. And these Our Letters
Patents shall be to either of them sufficient Warrants
in that Behalf. And finally We declare and will,
That, after this Our Royal Assent given and passed by
these Presents, and declared and notified as aforesaid,
That then immediately the said Acts, and every of
them, shall be taken, accepted, and admitted, good,
sufficient, and perfect Acts of Parliament, and Laws,
to all Intents, (fn. *) Constructions, and Purposes, and to be
put in due Execution accordingly; the Continuance or
Dissolution of this Our Parliament, or any other Use,
Custom, Thing, or Things, to the contrary thereof
notwithstanding. In Witness whereof, We have
caused these Our Letters to be made Patents. Witness Ourself, at Westm. the Eleventh Day of July, in
the First Year of Our Reign.
