Medway Navigation;

A Message from the Lords, by Sir Nathaniell Hobart and Sir William Glascock;

Mr. Speaker, The Lords have sent you down a Bill for making the River Medway navigable, in the Counties of Kent and Sussex: To which they desire the Concurrence of this House.

Yarmouth Towns.

Mr. Crouch reports from the Committee, to which the Bill for settling the Differences between the Two Towns of Great and Little Yarmouth, touching the Lading and Unlading of Herrings, and other Commodities, was committed, That the Committee had examined and heard the Claim and Interest of both Towns; and, upon due and serious Considerations of the whole Matter, had, with some Amendments, agreed the Bill: Which Amendments he read, with the Coherence, in the Bill; and after, delivered the same in at the Clerk's Table: And the Amendments were twice read; and upon the Question, severally agreed to.

The Question being put, That the Bill, with the Amendments agreed to, be ingrossed;

The House was divided.

The Yeas went out.

Sir Phillip Howard, Tellers for the Yeas: 81.
Sir John Holland, With the Yeas,
Sir Wm. Doyley, Tellers for the Noes: 80.
Mr. Coventry, With the Noes,

But Sir Robert Paston, a Member of the House, appearing to be somewhat concerned in point of Interest; and having presented the Bill, with his Petition thereto annexed; and being numbered with the Yeas;

And the Question thereupon arising, Whether, by the Orders of the House, he should not have withdrawn;

And Sir Robert, to avoid engaging the House in a Debate, freely offering to withdraw; and that no Advantage should be had by his being told with the Yeas;

And the Voices being then equal; Mr. Speaker declared himself to be with the Yeas:

And so it was resolved in the Affirmative, That the said Bill be ingrossed.
