Westm. for Fuel; shewing,
"That they have seen an Order, made by this House,
for forbidding the cutting of any Trees near the
House of the Lady Wotton, near Canterbury, which
they believe hath been through Misinformation; for
the Wood cut was only Wood fit for Fuel, and far off
the House: Therefore desires their Lordships would
please to re-call the said Order."
Ordinance to be brought in, to revoke the One for cutting Fuel.

not be had; but seeing there is Plenty now of Newcastle
Coal: This House thinks it fit, that an Ordinance be
made, for revoking of that Ordinance; and that no
more Wood be cut upon the Ground of the Lady

cutting of Wood shall not carry away any Timber of
that Wood which is already cut.
