Parliament to be adjourn'd.

The Lord Treasurer declared unto the House, That Yesterday His Majesty, advising with the Lords of His Privy Council thought fit (and so hath commanded me to let you know) to adjourn the Parliament at this Time, for these Causes.

Reasons.

1. The Season of the Year, by the Continuance of this great Concourse of People, may cause Infection.

2. The Use, that this Time of the Year may have of the Lieutenants of the Shires, and the Justices of Peace in the Country.

3. Because the Courts at Westm. Hall have not had their ordinary Proceedings during this Session.

4. For that the Profits of His Majesty's Revenues are as it were at a Stand.

5. The Omission of State.

The Reasons why He will adjourn it rather than prorogue it, are these:

1. For that the Adjournment keeps a kind of Being in the Parliament.

2. Whereas, as many good Bills are preferred, and not as yet past, the Adjournment reserves them in the same State they now are.

3. It will keep many Laws in Continuance, which will end with a Session, without a special Proviso for the same.

4. His Majesty's Free and General Pardon is not yet prepared, which His Majesty intends to the better Sort of His People as well as to the meanest.

5. Being there are so many Bills exhibited, His Majesty cannot, in so short (fn. *) Time, apply His Mind to advise which Bills to accept of, and which to refuse.

As, in this Parliament, His Majesty hath already redressed the Corruptions of the Chief Courts of Justice, and (by His Proclamation) called in the Patent of Inns and Hosteries, and forbidden Bills of Conformity, which were Things very grievous to His Subjects; so His Majesty cherisheth the Bill against Informers, against the Abuse of Supersedeas, against Monopolies, against Recusants, for Limitation of Suits, with an Intent to perfect them.

His Majesty also purposeth to reform divers other Grievances to His People.

His Majesty's Pleasure is, That you perform the Acts in the House against Saturday next, especially that of Sir John Bennett; and hath appointed Sunday next, in the Afternoon, to hear any Thing concerning any other Grievances.

And, on Monday next, His Majesty will send a Commission for the Adjournment of the Parliament.

Gentlemen to be exempt from the Punishment of Whipping.

The Lord Treasurer reported the Bill for exempting of the Gentry of this Realm from the servile Punishment of Whipping, with an Amendment and a Proviso.

The which Amendments and Proviso were presently Twice (fn. †) read, and the Bill Ordered to be ingrossed.

Manors of Stepney and Hackney.

Hodie 1a vice lecta est Billa, An Act for Confirmation of the Copyhold Estates and Customs of divers Copyholders, of the Manors of Stepney and Hackney, according to certain Indentures of Agreement, and a Decree in the High Court of Chancery, made between the Lords of the same Manors and the Copyholders.
