D. Bucks and L. Butler, Quarrel.

The Lord Chamberlain reported to the House, "That, according to their Lordships Commands on Friday last, he had acquainted the King with the Business concerning the Duke of Bucks and the Lord Butler; and His Majesty returns this Answer, That He hath taken off the Restraint from the Lord Butler, and hath commanded him to attend this House this Morning, to receive their Lordships Determination."

Votes to prevent the Importation of French Commodities.

Next, the House took into Consideration the Effect of the late Conference with the House of Commons, concerning the Votes for inhibiting the Importation of French Manufactures and Commodities, &c. and agreed with the House of Commons according to their Desires.

Hereupon the Earl of Anglesey and the Lord Ashley were appointed by the House to word that Addition agreed upon in the proper Place, where all His Majesty's Dominions are to be included.

And the Earl of Anglesey reported the Addition to the said Vote; which, being read, was Agreed to.

And the House ORDERED, That the same should be communicated to the House of Commons, at a Conference, To-morrow Morning.

D. Bucks and L. Butler, Quarrel.

This Day being appointed to take into Consideration what the Duke of Bucks acquainted their Lordships with on Friday of what passed between him and the Lord Butler; his Grace did upon his Honour aver, "That the Lord Butler told him, That he might remember he said something the other Day in the House, for which he would fight with him; which Challenge he accepted of; and confessed that Chelsey Feilds was the Place appointed to fight in."

The Lord Butler said, upon his Honour, "That he said nothing to the Duke of Bucks concerning Words spoken by him in this House, but concerning other Matters out of the House; for which he did desire to fight with him."

Upon this, the House commanded both the said Lords to withdraw; and, before they withdrew, had the Command and Injunction of this House signified to them by the Lord Chancellor, that they should neither send nor speak to one another during their Withdrawing.

And, after a serious Debate, and Consideration of this Business, these following Questions were put:

"1. Whether the Lord Butler shall for this Business be committed to The Tower of London?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

"2. Whether the Duke of Bucks shall be committed to The Tower of London?"

It was Resolved in the Negative.

"3. Whether the Duke of Bucks shall be committed to the Custody of the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

L. Butler committed to The Tower.

After this, the Lord Butler was by the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod brought to this Bar; and, after his Lordship had kneeled as a Delinquent until he was bid to stand up, the Lord Chancellor declared to him, "That this House hath considered of the Offence that he hath committed; and have adjudged him to stand committed for the same to The Tower of London, there to remain during the Pleasure of this House."

D. of Bucks committed to the Black Rod.

In the like Manner was the Duke of Bucks brought to the Bar; and the Lord Chancellor pronounced the Judgement of this House against him, "That for his Offence he shall stand committed to the safe, Custody of the Gentleman Usher attending this House, during the Pleasure of this House."

ORDERED, That the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod shall safely convey the Lord Butler, and deliver him into the Custody of the Lieutenant of The Tower of London.
