Browne, Cler. Parl. against Sir Thomas Dawes, for Scandal.
Upon reading the Petition of John Browne, Clerk
of the Parliaments; "complaining of Sir Thomas
Dawes, for laying an Imputation on the Justice of
this House, and a Scandal upon the Petitioner:" It
is Ordered, That Sir Tho. Dawes Knight, and
Wilson the Solicitor, shall appear before this House on
Monday Morning next, to answer the same.
Report from the Committee appointed to treat with The States Ambassadors about Restitutions.
The Earl of Northumb. reported, "That the Committee of both Houses, that are appointed to treat
with The States Ambassadors concerning Ships, have
had Occasion to peruse the Declaration of both
Houses concerning Foreign Ships that bring Ammunition, &c. to Ports in Defection from the Parliament; and they do apprehend, that, if some Explanation be not made concerning that Declaration, it
will not only debar trading here, but will be an
Occasion for other Princes and States to prohibit
trading with them; therefore the Opinion of the
Committee is, that the publishing of the said Declaration be respited for some Time, until the Committee shall give a further Account of it."
Hereupon this House approved of the Opinion of
the Committee; and Ordered the same accordingly.
This Day Counsel of the Dutch Merchants were
heard, concerning the Cause between Mrs. Vandenenden
and them: And it is Ordered, That this House will
hear Counsel on both Sides on Monday next, concerning the Point of the Will only.
House adjourned till 9a cras.
