Thursday, April 16, 1657, post meridiem.
In the Council Chamber, his Highness gave the Committee a meeting, where six of the grandees spoke very learnedly and soberly to the point of kingship; to reinforce their
former reasons, viz. Lord-Chief-Justice Glynn, The Master
of the Rolls, Colonel Jones, Sir Richard Onslow, Lord
Fiennes, Lord Broghill, and Lord Whitlock. His Highness
did acknowledge their reasons to be very weighty, and such
as he could not instantly reply to, without shaming both himself and the business; so desired time to consider of an answer; and it was agreed, that the Committee should attend
his Highness at the same place to-morrow afternoon, at three.
