The Lord Steward reported, "That he had attended Her Majesty, pursuant to Order; and that Her Majesty was pleased to appoint this Day, at Half an Hour after One a Clock, for both Houses to attend Her Majesty, with their Address, at St. James's."

Message to H. C. to acquaint them with it.

Then, a Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Sir Robert Legard and Mr. Pitt:

To acquaint them, that Her Majesty has appointed Half an Hour after One a Clock, for both Houses to attend Her Majesty, with their Address, at St. James's; and that their Lordships will be there at that Time.

Then, it being proposed, "To hear the Cause appointed this Day to be heard;"

The Question was put, "Whether the Counsel shall be now called in?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Pole versus Gardiner.

After hearing Counsel this Day, upon the Petition and Appeal of John Pole, to which Samuel Gardiner is Respondent:

It is Ordered, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That this House will proceed to hear Counsel further in this Cause To-morrow; the First Business.

Cruizers and Convoys, Bill.

Whereas this Day was appointed for the House to be put into a Committee, upon the Bill, intituled, "An Act for the better securing the Trade of this Kingdom, by Cruizers and Convoys;" and for hearing the Owners of the Ship Worcester, upon their Petition, if the Committee think fit:

It is Ordered, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the House shall be put into a Committee thereupon, on Tuesday next, at Eleven a Clock, the First Business; and nothing to intervene; at which Time the Petitioners may be heard, if the Committee think fit.
