"Means for the appeasing of the Tumult in Kent.

"1. That they may (fn. *) have Liberty to present their Petition to the House.

And therefore, if some Course were taken to give Satisfaction unto them that no such Thing was affirmed by the House, or no Authority given to any Person by the House for to affirm so much, and that if it were (fn. †) made good by any Man he should be called in Question for it, or for any such Words of that Nature, it would be a great Means to settle their Distractions there.

"3. That, upon their immediate Disbanding, and departing Home quietly, there shall be an Act of Indemnity for them all."

Instructions for the E. of Thanet to go there.

Upon this Report, it is Ordered, To send to the House of Commons, and let them know, that the Lords do think fit that these Disorders in Kent may be quieted in a fair Way, if it be possible; in order to which, they do approve of the sending down of the Earl of Thanett into Kent, and that Instructions be given him in Pursuance of these Heads; and that it be referred to the Committee at Derby House to draw up the Instructions accordingly.
