Message from the H. C. with Ordinances.
A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Sir Robert Harley Knight, and others:
To desire their Lordships Concurrence in divers Ordinances.
The Answer returned was:
That this House will send an Answer by Messengers
of their own.
Widow Ferrer's Petition, for her Husband's Pay.
The Petition of the Widow of Constance Ferrer, lately
slain at the Siege of Banbury, was read; shewing, "That
there is a great Arrear due to her Husband for his
Pay; and she, being now in great Want, desires some
Money for her Relief."
Hereupon this House Ordered, To recommend this
Petition to the House of Commons.
Wharfingers, &c. coming through Palace Yard.
Ordered, That the Cause concerning the Woodmongers and the Brewers, touching their coming with
their Carts through The Ould Pallace, shall be heard on
Friday Morning, by Counsel on both Sides; and Mr. Serjeant Whitfield and Mr. Serjeant Fynch are hereby assigned to be of Counsel for the King in this Business,
and to receive the Advice of Sir Randall Crew therein.
Message to the H. C. about it; and with Mrs. Fener's Petition.
A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by
Sir Edward and Mr. Page:
1. To deliver the Petition of the Widow of Major
Ferrer to them, with Recommendations, for some Means
to supply her Necessities.
2. To let the House of Commons know, that this
House did not refuse to hear the Brewers and Woodmongers concerning their Way through The Ould Pallace
with their Carts, but were in a Course to give them a
Hearing, and do them Justice; and that their Lordships
have appointed Friday next for hearing the Business;
and whereas it is alledged, that there hath been Money
taken for the Permission of the Carts to come through
The Pallace, their Lordships gave no such Authority; and
their Lordships do think fit that Enquiry be made after
such Persons that have misinformed One House concerning the Proceedings of the other.
Propositions for a Peace.
The House was adjourned into a Committee during
Pleasure, and the Lords took the Propositions into Consideration.
The House was resumed.
