Realm, by the Laws of the Land and the undoubted
Customs of the Kingdom, ought to have his Person
freed from Arrests or Restraint, upon any Civil Actions
or Attachments: Yet so it is, may it please your
Lordships, one Thomas Shergald, of Hindon, in the
County of Wilts, Gentleman, well knowing your Petitioner to be a Peer of this Realm, did confederate,
with Thomas Arnewell the Under Sheriff of Midd.

your Petitioner in Westm'r Hall; and did arrest and
carry him Prisoner to the Under Sheriff, then fitting in
the Hall: And that whereas your Petitioner having
lately sold a small Estate which he had in Wiltsshire,
to raise Money to pay his Composition at Gouldsmiths
Hall, and to supply his great Necessities; may it please
your Lordships to be informed, one William Moyle your
Petitioner's late Servant, and others his Confederates,
taking Encouragement by the Example of the said
Shergald and Arnwell, have attached the said Money
of your Petitioners in the Hands of one Mr. Robert
Gall of London Merchant, and go about to condemn it
in the Sheriff's Court, contrary to the Laws of the
Land, and the just ancient Privilege of all Peers of
this Kingdom, especially in Time of Parliament.

Lordships will be pleased to call the said several
Parties before you, to answer their said Contempts; and that all Proceedings upon the said
Attachments may be staid; and that such Punishment may be inflicted on the said Confederates, and such Reparation made to your Petitioner, as in your Wisdoms shall be found
