Archbishop of Cant's Trial.

Next, the House proceeded to hear the Evidence against the Archbishop of Canterbury, upon the Remainder of the Seventh Original Article.

And the Committee of the House of Commons begun to press the Evidence of the Service Book of Scotland.

The Archbishop desired his Counsel might be heard before this be given in Evidence, because of his Plea.

Hereupon they withdrew; and the House taking this into Consideration, the House thought it fit that the Evidence of this Particular should be reserved to the House of Commons until they come to the Thirteenth Article; and then they should be heard on both Sides, concerning this Particular and the Thirteenth Article.

The Evidence for this Day being ended, the Archbishop desired some Time to prepare his Answer; and the House gave him Leave till Four of the Clock this Afternoon, to make his Answer.
