It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Col. Hacker to send into the Country, for the Warrant for the Execution of the late King:

Report was made to the House, from the Lieutenant of The Tower of London, "That, according to the Contents of their Lordships Order, he hath examined Colonel Hacker, who confesseth that he hath the Warrant in the Order mentioned, at his House in the Country; and that he believes it agrees with what is printed. His Wife and Family are in Town; so that, he faith, without sending his Wife down, he knows not how further to give Satisfaction:"

Hereupon it is Ordered, That Colonel Hacker do forthwith send his Wife into the Country, to fetch the said Warrant; and that the Gentleman Usher attending this House do send a Man along with her for that Purpose.

He will endeavour to discover the Executioner.

The House was further informed, "That the Lieutenant of The Tower said, he asked Colonel Hacker, if he knew the Person that executed His late Majesty; and he told him, that he heard it was a Major; but does not know his Name; but he will endeavour to find it out."

L. Delawar and L. Berkeley, Precedency.

Ordered, That the Cause between the Lord De la Warr and the Lord Berkely, concerning the Right of Precedency, which should have (fn. *) been heard at the Bar this Day, is put off till this Day Fortnight; and in the mean Time the Lord De la Warr hath Leave to go into the Country.

Ordered, The Orders read this Day, for putting the Earl of Derby and the Marquis of Winton into Possession of their Lands, be suspended for the present, and taken into Consideration on Tuesday next; on which Day likewise shall be taken into Consideration such Orders as have been granted to several Lords, to have Power to search Houses for their Goods which have been taken from them in the Time of the late Wars.

The Lord Robertes reported it as the Sense of the Committee, "That a Message may be sent to the House of Commons, to desire that Mr. Rushworth, a Member of that House, may attend this House now, if he be there, to give their Lordships an Account about something touching the King's Death."

And a Message was sent to the House of Commons, by Dr. Birde and Mr. Brampston, to this Purpose.

A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Sir Will'm Wheeler, &c.; who brought up the Bill for nominating Commissioners for Sewers; which was sent down to them, with Amendments in Paper, which could not for that Cause be proceeded in; therefore they have sent up the same Bill newly ingrossed, wherein they desire their Lordships Concurrence.

Mr. Rushworth examined, concerning the late King's Death.

And the Speaker, by the Directions of the House, asked him this Question, "What he knows of a Meeting of Twelve Persons, at The Beare of the Bridge Foot, concerning the Contrivance of the King's Death?"

And he returned this Answer, "That this was the First Time that ever he heard of it."

Then he withdrew.

And the House directed the Speaker to ask him this Question, "What he knows of a Meeting, at The Beare at the Bridge Foot, Windsor, or any other Place, concerning the Contrivance of the King's Death?"

Mr. Rushworth, called in again, was asked the said Question.

And he said, "That Scout-master Watson told him, That some Officers of the Army at Windsor did speak about trying of the King; and they were of Opinion, that, if the Army did desire the same of the Parliament, the Parliament would not deny it: That Mr. Watson did name Colonel Deane and Colonel Ireton. Further he knows not."

Upon this, their Lordships dismissed Mr. Rushworth from any further Attendance concerning this Business.
