Mr. Justice Winch,
Mr. Justice Haughton,
|Mr. Justice Hutton,
Mr. Justice Chamb'leyne,
Mr. Justice Jones,
The Lords are to be tried by their Peers in all Cases.
Having first consulted thereof in private amongst
themselves, delivered their Opinion to be, That, in all
Cases, the Lords are to be tried by their Peers, unless
they be excepted by particular Words. And the
Clerk was commanded to enter this into the Journal
And then the said Bill, being put to the Question,
was generally Assented unto.
The House was moved, That the Lords Committees
of the Customs and Orders of this House, and Privileges of the Peers of the Kingdom, or Lords of Parliament, would be pleased to repair into the Little Committee Chamber, for that their Sub-Committees had
Matters of Importance to impart unto their Lordships,

Whereupon, the Names of the said Committees being read, they went into the said Chamber accordingly;
and, after some Stay there made, and returned, the
Lord Archbishop of Canterbury reported, That there
being an Order made in this House, for the said Committee to take Consideration of the Custom and Orders of this House, and Privileges of the Peers of the
Kingdom, or Lords of Parliament; and a Sub-Committee being made out of the same, who had Authority given them by the House, under the Hands of
Three of the said Sub-Committee, to give Warrant to
certain Persons to make Search amongst the Records
for the said Privileges; and whereas their Lordships
(pursuing their Authority) deputed Mr. John Selden
for the said Search, wherein much Pains had been
taken (and great Cost bestowed therein by the House),
and Copies of the same Records fair written in a Book,
and presented to their Lordships; that the same, being
left in the Hands of the said Mr. Selden, at the last
Recess of this Parliament, to be presented unto their
Lordships again at the Access to the same, were taken
away from him, in a Search amongst his Papers, by
His Majesty's Command, for Matters of State. And
the same being restored unto Mr. Selden again, and reviewed by the said Sub-Committee, many of the said
Papers were missing.
The Lord Haughton also reported what Papers were
Sub-Committees to have Authority to appoint Persons to search and transcribe Records.
Whereupon (after long Debate of this Matter) it
was Ordered, That the Lords Sub-Committees of
Privileges, &c. shall have the same Authority which
they formerly had, to appoint Mr. Selden and others to
search the Records, and to transcribe them, and to supply the Defect of the said Book of Privileges, &c. and
to perfect it as it was before.

The Lord Treasurer reported, That Eighteen of
the Lords Committees on the Bill against Transportation
of Money met on Wednesday last, being the 28th of
this November, as was appointed by the House; but,
the Number of the Committees being great, and the
better Half not appearing, they could not proceed by
the Orders of the House.
Whereupon it is Ordered, That, if Ten or upwards of any Committee do meet (though not Half
of their Number), they may proceed notwithstanding.
Whereas the Lords Committees on the Bill touching Concealments were appointed to meet this Day, at
Two in the Afternoon, in the Painted Chamber, the
same is deferred until Tuesday next (the Fourth of
December), at Two in the Afternoon, in the same

It is Ordered, That Con Conner, who counterfeited

And also it is Ordered, That the Serjeant at Arms
