Thursday, January 22, 1656–7.

The House, according to former Order, resumed the debate adjourned yesterday.

During this debate, some exceptions were taken at some words spoken by Mr. James Ashe, as charging several members of this House; and it was desired that he might explain himself, and declare who the persons were, and what the particulars that were charged on them. But it was put off until the end of the main debate, that it might not interrupt the main business. (fn. 1)


  • 1. The next day the House, after a short sitting, adjourned for "attending his Highness the Lord Protector."
