The House heard the Information of Mr. Seymour, what he could say concerning Colonel Tomlinson, touching the King's Murder:

And it appearing by him, that the late King did express to him that Colonel Tomlinson had carried himself civilly towards His Majesty, therefore desired he might find Respects; and it did not appear to their Lordships that the said Colonel Tomlinson did sign the Warrant for the Murder of the King:

It being put to the Question, "Whether the Name of Colonel Tomlinson be left out of the List of Names read Yesterday?"

It is Ordered, That the Person, the Gentleman Usher's Deputy, shall give an Account hereof to this House this Afternoon.

Howcott against Tench.

Upon Information of Robert Howcott, "That one Talley told him, that one Tench brought Irons to the Scaffold at the Murder of the King, and dipped his Handkerchief in the Blood of the King:"

It is Ordered, That the said Talley and Tench shall be summoned to appear before this House forthwith; and then their Lordships will further examine this Business.
