this House granted a Commission, under the Great
Seal of England, to divers Merchants of London, to
examine and enquire of the Accompts, Estate, Debts,
and Credits, concerning Anthony Hooper and him,
and to make Report thereof to this House; and accordingly divers of the Referees often met, and employed one Christofer Ayres as Clerk in the Business,
and kept the registering of all Books, Accompts,
Writings, Papers, and Examinations, taken before
them, who still detaineth the same in his Custody;
and the Petitioner, since Hooper's Death, hath often
requested the said Referees to make their Report of
the State of the Cause to this House, who are still
willing so to do; and, to that Purpose, have often
sent and directed the Petitioner to go to the said
Ayres, to bring to them the said Books, Accompts,
Papers, Writings, and Examinations, which he hath
refused so to do; and now one Fairfax and Legay,
great Debtors to the Estate of the said Hooper, go
about under-hand to get all the said Examinations,
Accompts, and Papers, from the said Ayres, and by
that Means to conceal their Debts."
Hereupon this House Ordered, That the said Ayres
shall forthwith shew Cause to this House, why he refuseth to deliver the said Books, Accompts, and Examinations, as is desired; and, in the mean Time,
he shall not deliver the said Books, Accompts, Papers,

The Deposition of Henry Tyllier;
His Deposition, concerning his Keeper's ill Treatment of him, and that the Wound he received from him is not yet cured.
Says, "That he had received a Command from the
Lieutenant of The Tower, by one Mr. Yeates, Gentleman Gaoler, for his Remove out of the Chamber
where he then was, to one Mr. Sopis, One of the
other Warders of The Tower, being formerly kept
by one Delayfeild, who, conceiving himself damnified
by this his intended Removal, threatened the aforesaid Tillier with great Strictness and Severity, though
at that Time he was close Prisoner, using him with
base Language and Incivility, not permitting him
to stir out of his Chamber, or any-body to come
to him; so that, the Day before the said Tyllier was
hurt, Mr. Yeates being present with him in his
Chamber, and was an Eye-witness to the Rudeness
and Misbehaviour of the said Delayfeild, both in his
Carriage and Language, he was desired, by the
aforesaid Tillier, to command Delayfeild from thence,
which he at that Time did. The Day after, this
Delayfeild coming to his Chamber about Two of
the Clock to open the Door, where he was still Prisoner, that he might have his Victuals brought in,
being Two of the Clock in the Afternoon, the
aforesaid Tillier being extremely troubled to see
himself neglected by his Keeper, this Delayfeild, of
whom he had so well deserved, desired him Three
several Times to depart the Chamber, and to lock
the Door, and leave him to his own Quiet, which
the said Delayfeild refused to do; and making his
Approach to the Table where he fat at Dinner, replied, "He would stay there in Despite of him."
Whereat the said Tillier arose from Table, and entreated him to forbear his Chamber, for that his
Insolencies were not to be endured; and desiring
him thus to leave his Chamber, the said Delayfeild
violently laid Hands upon him, striking him with
the Key of the Prison Door on the Forehead, to
the great Danger of his Life, for which he hath
been in Cure ever since the Two and Twentieth
of January last, there being several Pieces of the Skull
taken out, the Wound remaining yet uncured. Upon
his Examination, he will set forth the whole Particulars; in the mean Time, he doth most humbly
submit himself with this his Business to the most
Honourable House of Lords.
House adjourned till 9a cras.
