Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, "An Act to enable Sir Trevor Williams Baronet, and his Four Sons, to make Jointures to their respective Wives."

Heads for a Conference about stopping the French King's Progress in The Spanish Netherlands, &c.

The Lord Viscount Fauconberg reported, "That the Committee which was appointed to prepare and consider what is fit to be offered, at a Conference to be had with the House of Commons, concerning the Address to His Majesty for the Preservation of The Spanish Netherlands, have prepared a Paper in order thereunto, which they offer to the Consideration of the House."

Which Paper was read, as follows:

"That the Lords do fully concur with the House of Commons in the Matter of the Address sent up to their Lordships on Saturday last, and do only apprehend that it may not altogether answer the Ends designed; their Lordships very much doubting this Address may not sufficiently encourage His Majesty to pursue the necessary Methods for compassing so great a Work, unless the humble Advice of His Two Houses be backed with such Assurances, as may let the World see, that if our Security cannot be attained by such Alliances as His Majesty shall think fit to make, nothing will be left unattempted to procure it by our utmost Assistances.

"The Lords do further offer to your Consideration, that the Words ["and in Sicily"] may, be added after the Word ["Netherlands"], in the 14th Line; and in 22th Line, after the same Word, may be added ["and Sicily"] it being of great Importance to our Trade, that Sicily be not in the Hands of the French King."

The House Agreed with the Committee in this Paper.

Message to H. C. for this Conference.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Baron Berty and Justice Scrogs:

To desire a present Conference, in the Painted Chamber, concerning the Address to His Majesty, brought up on Saturday last.

The same Lords who were of the Committee Yesterday are appointed to manage this Conference, with the Addition of the Earl of Aylesbury and the Lord Berkley.

Bill against Foreign Manufactures.

The Earl of Aylesbury reported, "That the Committee have considered the Bill against Foreign Manufactures, and have heard several Persons concerned; and their Opinion is, That the said Bill be engrossed, with some Amendments."

Which, being read Twice, were Agreed to; and the Bill ordered to be engrossed, with the said Amendments.

Gerard's & al. Nat. Bill.

The Earl of Dorset reported the Bill for the Naturalization of Charles Gerrard and others, as fit to be engrossed, with some Amendments.

Which, being read Twice, were Agreed to; and the Bill ordered to be engrossed, with the said Amendments.

Hodie 3a vice lecta est Billa, "An Act for Naturalization of Peter Reneu and others."

Message to H. C. with it.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir Edward Lowe and Sir Miles Cooke:

To deliver the Bill for naturalizing of Peter Reneu and others, and to desire their Concurrence thereunto.

Answer from thence.

The Messengers sent to the House of Commons return with this Answer:

That the House of Commons will give their Lordships a Conference, as is desired.

Then the House was adjourned during Pleasure, and the Lords went to the Conference; which being ended, the House was resumed.

Report of the Conference.

The Lord Treasurer reported, "That the Lords that managed this Conference had delivered what they were commanded to do."
