A Message was brought from the House of Commons,
by Mr. Hungerford and others; who brought up several
Votes for the Banishment of all Priests and Jesuits out

E. Claveland's Bill. Sparrowe's Petition against it.
Upon reading the humble Petition of John Sparrow
this Day in this House; shewing, "That he having a
Debt of Four Thousand Pounds secured to him, out
of the Manors of Hackney and Stepney, which he is
likely to be made incapable of recovering, if the
Bill for enlarging the Time given by a former Act
for Redemption of Mortgages made by the Earl of
Cleveland, now before this House, should pass as it is:"
It is therefore ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and
Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said John
Sparrowe shall be heard, by his Counsel, on Wednesday next, at the Bar of this House, concerning the
Matters contained in his said Petition relating to the
D. Bucks and L. Butler Quarrel and Challenge.
After this, the Duke of Bucks acquainted this House,
"That Yesterday the Lord Butler did challenge him
to fight, upon Occasion of some Words that he spake
in this House, upon Debate of the Business Yesterday; which he conceived his Duty to give this
House an Account, as being a Peer and Member of
Which Business their Lordship were very sensible of,
as a Matter that highly concerned the Honour of this
House, and the Freedom and Privilege of Parliament,
and every Member thereof.
Their Lordships were further informed, "That the
Lord Butler was secured, by Command of the King,
to prevent the Breach of the Peace."
Hereupon the House appointed the Lord Chamberlain to signify to the King, "That the Duke of Bucks
hath acquainted their Lordships with a Business,
which they apprehend to be a Violation of the Privileges and Freedom of Parliament; but, in regard
their Lordships understand that the Lord Butler is
under His Majesty's Restraint in order to the keeping
of the Peace, their Lordships have suspended the
further Consideration of this Business until Monday."
The House further, by the Lord Chancellor, did
lay their Injunction and Command upon the Duke of
Bucks, not to do any further Act upon Occasion of the
said Challenge from the Lord Butler, but to keep the
Peace, that so the Business may remain as it is, without
any further Provocations, until this House do proceed
to examine the Business, and hear the Lord Butler, and
give such further Order therein as the Wisdom of this
House shall direct: And further it is ORDERED, That on
Monday Morning next, this House will take this Business
into further Consideration.
ORDERED, That the Lord Sandys is added to the
Committee for the Earl of Cleveland's Bill.
D. of Bucks and L. Arlington, Injunction to prevent a Quarrel.
This House, by the Lord Chancellor, laid a Command and Injunction upon the Duke of Bucks and the
Lord Arlington, "That they remain in Friendship, and act
nothing to the Breach of the Peace, in relation to what
Words passed this Day between them in this House."
