Veneris, 20o Martii, 1606
Mr. Speaker's Illness.
MANY of the House were assembled, and the ordinary Prayers said by the Clerk, but not the Prayer wonted to be said by Mr. Speaker; being so directed by the Assembly.
Mr. Hyde and Mr. Brock informed the House, that Mr. Speaker's Weakness continued; that his Desire was great to do Service, but he feared he should not be able Tomorrow; and therefore propounded, that he might have Leave to use Means for the Recovery of his Strength till Monday.
To this the Assembly seemed to assent, and so departed.
