It is Ordered, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said Bill shall be read a Second Time To-morrow; and that the Petitioners shall be heard, by their Counsel, what they have to offer in relation thereunto, before the same be read.

And, after some Time spent therein, the House was resumed.

And the Lord Delawar reported, " That the Committee had gone through the said Bill, and made some Amendments thereunto."

Which, being read Twice, were agreed to.
