Col. Lundee's Petition.
A PETITION of Colonel Lundee was read; setting
forth, That the Petitioner, being informed of an
Address made by this House to his Majesty, to send him
to Londonderry, representeth, That all the Witnesses,
necessary for his Defence, are now in London: And whereas, though he could not be so fortunate to do his Majesty
that good Service in his Post, as others; yet, his Majesty's
Affairs having not been prejudiced by his Miscarriage;
he hopes he shall not be sent to a Place, where he cannot
have the Benefit of such Testimony, as will be requisite
to make his Innocence appear: And praying, if he may
not have the Benefit of the intended Bill of Indemnity,
That he may receive his Tryal in England; and, above
all, since this House has taken some Examination of the
Matter, desires it may be in Parliament.
