Resolution agreed to:

And the said Resolution being read by the Clerk, was agreed to by the House.

"DISSENTIENT.

Protest against agreeing thereto.

1st. "Because by consulting the Judges out of Court in the Absence of the Parties, and with shut Doors, we have deviated from the most approved and almost uninterrupted Practice of above a Century and a Half, and established a Precedent, not only destructive of the Justice due to the Parties at our Bar, but materially injurious to the Rights of the Community at large, who in Cases of Impeachments, are more peculiarly interested, that all Proceedings of this High Court of Parliament should be open and exposed, like all other Courts of Justice, to public Observation and Comment, in order that no Covert and private Practices should defeat the great Ends of Public Justice."

2dly. "Because from private Opinions of the Judges upon private Statements, which the Parties have neither heard nor seen, Grounds of a Decision will be obtained, which must inevitably affect the Cause at Issue at our Bar; this Mode of Proceeding seems to be a Violation of the first Principles of Justice, inasmuch as we thereby force and consine the Opinions of the Judges to our Private Statement, and through the Medium of our subsequent Decision, we transfer the Effect of those Opinions to the Parties, who have been deprived of the Right and Advantage of being heard by such Private, though unintended Transmutation of the Point at lssue."

3dly. "Because the Prisoners who may hereafter have the Misfortune to stand at our Bar, will be deprived of that Consolation which the Lord High Steward Nottingham conveyed to the Prisoner Lord Cornwallis; (videlicet) That the Lords have that tender Regard of a Prisoner at the Bar, that they will not suffer a Case to be put up in his Absence lest it should prejudice him by being wrong stated."

4thly. "Because unusual Mystery and Secrecy in our judicial Proceedings must tend, either to discredit the Acquittal of the Prisoner, or render the Justice of his Condemnation doubtful.
