Jovis, 6o Decembris
Members not to leave Town.
ORDERED, No Member of this House shall go out of Town, till this great Business ended, without special Leave of the House.
A Member explains.
Sir Edw. Sackvyle: - Hath been told, that he should say in his Speech, before the Petition agreed upon, that no honest Man would give his Voice for that Petition. - If any such Word fell from him, it was but lapsus linguae; far from his Heart: - And desireth the House so to rest satisfied. - With which the House generally declared themselves, by a public Acclamation, to be satisfied.
Mr. Delbridge: - That some have taken Exception against his Speech. - Relateth the Particulars of it. Desireth Pardon, if any Word amiss have slipped from him : Is very sorry for it, and desireth Pardon of the House. Desireth to be cleared, by the Vote of the House. - Which done, by a general Acclamation.
