Which was read, and agreed to, as followeth:

Message to H. C. that the Lords have acquitted L. Sommers; that they will proceed on the E. of Orford's Trial; that they never will consent to a Committee of both Houses; and that they will do Justice in L. Haversham's Case.

A Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Mr. Gery and Doctor Newton:

To acquaint them, "That, in Answer to the Message of the House of Commons of this Day, the Lords do acquaint the Commons, That they might have known, by the Records of the House of Lords, that the Lords have proceeded to the Trial of the Lord Sommers on Tuesday last, being the Day appointed; and the Commons not appearing to maintain their Articles against the said Lord, the Lords have, by Judgement of their House, acquitted him of the Articles of Impeachment against him exhibited by the House of Commons, and all Things therein contained; and have dismissed the said Impeachment.

"And the Lords have appointed Monday next for the Trial of the Earl of Orford; on which Day they will proceed on the said Trial.

"The Commons still pressing for a Committee of both Houses (which the Lords never can consent to, for the Reasons already given); their Lordships can infer nothing from their persisting in that Demand, than that they never designed to bring any of their Impeachments to a Trial.

"As to the Lord Haversham; his Answer is now before the House of Commons; and the Lords resolve to do Justice in that Matter."
