To desire a Free Conference, presently, in the Painted Chamber, upon the Matter of the late Conference they had with the Lords, concerning the Forms and Methods of Proceedings to be had at the Trials of the Lords in The Tower.

The House was adjourned during Pleasure, and the Lords went to the Free Conference; which being ended, the House was resumed.

Report of the Conference.

The Lord President, and the rest of the Lords that were Managers, reported, "That the Lords asked the Commons, What those Forms and Methods were in Reference to the Trials of the Lords in The Tower which they desired to confer about? Of which the Commons say, They were not instructed to discourse, because they expected this Free Conference was to be concerning a Committee of both Houses, touching which their Lordships have given them yet no Denial: Therefore, the Commons said, they must resort to their House, for Directions herein."

A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Mr. Thynn and others:
