Then the said Thomas Penson was examined, in order to prove the unlawful Familiarity and adulterous Conversation between Doctor Berrington and Mrs. Haynes; and gave an Account, "That he is Servant to Mr. Haynes, and has lived several Years with him; that the first Time he saw Dr. Berrington at his Master's House (at Brockton in Shropshire), was, when he came Home with Mrs. Haynes in a Chaise, from a Place where she had met him upon a Visit, in the Beginning of the Year 1755; and that, soon after that, he came and visited at his Master's House; and that he has been sent to fetch him as a Physician when his Mintress has been ill; after which, his Visits were very frequent during the Course of that Year; that he would come all Hours, Morning, Noon, and Evenings; often slaid all Night, and sometimes several Nights together; and that, when his Master, has been from Home, he has very often seen them, in the Parlour, using very improper Familiarities, clipping, hugging, and kissing one another, with their Hands in each other's Bosoms, which he could easily see, as the Door of the Parlour was warped from the Frame, and would not shut close."

He withdrew; and,

Anne Dabbs, who is also a Servant to Mr. Haynes, and lived with him several Years, was called in; and, being sworn, was examined also to the same Point; and gave the like Account, as to improper Familiarities between Dr. Berrington and her Mistress, as the former Witness had done; and particularly, "That she once saw them in the Parlour standing, he with his Arms round her Waist, and she with her Hands upon his Shoulders; very close together; and, from the Motions they made, she has Reason to think, they were in the very Act; and; at another Time, she saw them in the same Place, in the same Posture, and making the like Motions, and believes, upon her Oath, that they were then in the very Act."

Being asked; "When she saw them in the Posture she describes, whether her Mistres's Petticoats were up, or the Doctor's Breeches down;" says, "She could not see that, her Mistress's Back being towards her."

And, being further examined, gave an Account, That, when the Doctor has lain at her Master's when her Master has gone out early in the Morning a hunting, as he often used to do, the Doctor has several Times gone into her Mistress's Room, and staid an Hour or so, before she got up; and she has several Times seen the Doctor lying upon her Mistres's Bed; and has seen her Mistress lying on the Doctor's Bed, when he was in Bed, but not in any indecent Posture."

She withdrew.

Which Amendments, being read Twice by the Clerk, were agreed to by the House.

And thereupon the House proceeded to take into Consideration the Motion made on Monday last, for dispensing with the Standing Order upon this Bill.

And the said Reasons reported from the Committee were read by the Clerk, as follow:

"That Mr. Mellish hath now a fair Opportunity of selling to Advantage the Estates which he hath petitioned to dispose of, and hath a Purchaser ready for Part thereof of the Yearly Value of £200, who hath agreed to give £.8000 for the same, provided Mr. Mellish can be enabled to make him a good Title.

"That Mr. Mellish hath actually agreed for the Purchase of an Estate (which now coth, or formerly did, belong to Sir Robert Cliston) adjoining to his own Estate, and in every respect more convenient and advantageous, and of a much larger Value than the Estates which he proposes to sell, provided a good Title can be made thereto. And a Petition hath been lately brought into this House, on Behalf of the said Sir Robert Cliston and his Family, for Leave to bring in a Bill for that Purpose; but Mr. Mcllish's Counsel have advised him not to bind himself to such Purchase by any written Article or Contract, until a good Title can be made.

"That, if Mr. Mellish should not now be enabled to sell the Estate which he hath so agreed to dispose of, he will be deprived of the Benefit of the Agreement which he hath made for such Sale, and may not afterwards have an Opportunity of selling the same to such Advantage.

"That express Provision is made by the Bill, to deposit the Money arising by the Sale of the Estates in the Bank of England, until a proper Purchase can be met with; and, as Mr. Mellish expects to be soon able to make the Purchase, which the said Standing Order requires, he humbly hopes that the said Order will be dispensed with."

And Consideration being had thereof:

Ordered, That the Standing Order be dispensed with in this Case.

Ordered, That the said Bill, with the Amendments, be engrossed.
