Hawes and Governors of Christ's Hospital versus Hawes.

"To the Right Honourable the Lords in Parliament assembled.

"The humble Petition of Nicholas Hawes Esquire Defendant, at the Suit of Anne Hawes Widow and the Governors of Christ's Hospitall Plaintiffs;

"Humbly sheweth,

"That whereas, by an Order of the Sixth of March last (a Copy whereof is hereunto annexed), it is expressed (amongst other Things), That, in regard the last Verdict did pass with the now Petitioners, this Court did conceive it to be agreeable to Justice, that the Defendant should forthwith put in Security, such as this Court should allow of, for answering of such Mean Profits concerning the Premises as this Court shall at any Time order to be paid therein.

"Your Petitioner humbly sheweth, that, before your Petitioner's Recovery of the Premises, the Plaintiff Anne, by colour of a pretended Will only, held the Lands in Question Seven Years and a Half in the Time of Peace, when the Lands yielded most Benefit; yet never made your Petitioner any Recompence for the Mean Profits during the Time that she held the same, your Petitioner having obtained the Possession by a Decree in the Court of Wards, grounded upon a Verdict and Judgement thereupon at Law, so as there is no Cause, as your Petitioner humbly conceiveth, to answer any Mean Profits.

"Your Petitioner therefore humbly prayeth, that the putting in of Security for the Mean Profits may be spared; and that the Plaintiff Anne may be left to her Course of Law, to recover the same, if any such shall be found due unto her.

"And whereas, by the said Order, a new Trial at Law is directed;

"Your Petitioner humbly prayeth, that your Lordships would be pleased to order, that the same Trial may be by a substantial Jury of Knights, Esquires, and Gentlemen of Quality; it being a Matter of considerable Value, and concerns your Petitioner's whole Estate.

"And your Petitioner shall pray, &c.

"Nich. Hawes."
