The Commons depute a Committee to confer with the Lords on their Want of a Speaker, who appoint another, jointly to wait on the Queen, in the Name of both Houses, to make known their Situation.

THE Queen's most Excellent Majesty having begun this Her High Court of Parliament at Westm. the 12th of January, in the Fifth Year of Her most Gracious Reign, held and continued the same Session until the 10th of April then next following; and then the same Day prorogued until the 2d of October following; and sithence, by divers Commissions of Prorogation from Her Highness, under the Great Seal of England, at sundry Times, and upon weighty Affairs accidentally occurring, the same was prorogued and adjourned until this present Monday, being the last of September, as by Register and good Records thereof may and doth plainly appear. And now, as well the Nobility and Lords, both Spiritual and Temporal, as also the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the Commons House, each Party severally, neither unmindful of the weighty Charge committed unto them, neither letting slip the Opportunity of Time offer'd, did assemble themselves in their accustom'd several Houses and Places of Together-meeting; and being in the same, the Commons making Entry (as it were) to treat of that they had in hand, immediately found the Defect and Want of their Mouth and Speaker, one Thomas Wylliams, Esquire, lately from them by Death berest, which was there openly and manifestly testified, and made known unto them; for Remedy of which their Defection, they fell to Consultation what was most meet to be done, in that so needful, unexpected and unexperimented Cause; in which Deliberation it was thought good, and wholly agreed upon, that Sir Edward Rogers, Knight, Comptroller of Her Highness's Houshold, a chief Member of that Assembly and Fellowship, accompanied with Sir Francis Knolls, Knight, Her Highness's Vice Chamberlain, Sir William Cecill, Knight, Her Highness's Chief Secretary, Sir Ambrose Cave, Knight, Chancellor of Her Highness's Dutchy of Langcastre, Four Chief Members of that Assembly and Fellowship, and divers others, to the Number of Twenty Persons, should (as sent from and with the Mind of the whole House) make Relation of that their Estate thus happened unto the Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, and unto all the aforesaid Lords, at that Time likewise being in their Court, in mindful Attendance to their Charge; and therewith also, in humble wise, should request them, to have their Aid and Conjunction, both for the Intimation of the Matter unto the Queen's Highness, and also for Knowledge of Her gracious good Pleasure and Will therein; all which Matter and Petition the said Mr. Comptroller, assisted with the Personages and Company aforesaid appointed, did, in comely Order and discreet Modesty, make manifest and known unto the said Lords. After which the Lord Keeper, first requiring the said Personages a while to withdraw themselves, and then commending the Order of the Matter unto the said Lords sitting in Consultation for the same, by whom, upon considered Advice therein had, it was by them all thought seeming, to signify unto the said Commons, by the Personages aforesaid sent, That they thought it expedient and good the said Lord Keeper, the Lord Treasurer of England, the Duke his Grace of Norff. and the Lord Marquis of Northampton, accompanied with the Four to-fore-recited Personages of the said Commons House, being all of Her Highness's most Honourable Privy Council, should, in the Name of both Assemblies, with all Humbleness and due Celerity, make Intimation of their said Estate, and the Petition thereupon depending, unto Her said Highness. To which Advice the said Commons, upon Knowledge had of the same, wholly assented.
