Super quo, præd. X'poferus Ashmead, per Adrian. Moore Attorn. suum, ven. et dicit, quod nec in Record. et Process. præd. nec in Redditione Judicii præd. neque in Affirmatione ejusdem Judicii, in ullo est Erratum; et pet. quod Curia Parliamenti nunc hic procedat ad Examinationem tam Recordi et Process. præd. quam Materiarum præd. superius pro Error. assign.; et quod Judicium præd. ac Affirmatio ejusdem in omnibus affirmentur, &c. Et quia Cur. Parliamenti nunc hic, scilicet, apud Westm. in Com.
