Ordered, That the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty have a Copy of the said Petition: And that they do, To-morrow Morning, give a particular Account to this House what Ships have been appointed for Cruising, and to what Stations, since the Act for appointing CruisingShips; and also what Orders have been made by them pursuant thereunto: And that the Petitioners do attend this House To-morrow Morning.
