Earl of Stamford introduced.
This Day Henry Earl of Stamford was brought into
the House, in his Parliament Robes, after the accustomed
Manner, and placed next below the Earl of Peterborough.
Report of the Conference concerning the Petition against Recusants.
The Earl of Bedford reported the Conference Yesterday between the Committees of both Houses, touching
the Petition against the Recusants, etc. how that at the
said Conference Sir John Cooke (one of His Majesty's
Secretaries) spake in Manner following, on the Behalf
of the Commons: videlicet,
"We are sent to attend this Conference, from the
Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the Commons
House. And, first, we acknowledge all due Honour
both unto the Reverend Fathers of the Church and
to your Noble Lordships, in that you have shined before us as worthy Lights in the Encouragement and
Maintenance of God's true Religion. It is the true
Support of all your Dignities and Honours. And
this Forwardness of yours is the more remarkable,
when that viperous Generation (as your Lordships
justly stile them) do at Ease, with Tooth and Nail,
assay to rent the Bowels of their Mother. For give
me Leave to tell you what I know, that they do now
both vaunt at Home, and write to their Friends
abroad, that they are in Peace, that they hope all
will be well, and they doubt not to prevail and win
Ground upon us. And, a little to awaken the Zeal
and Care of our Learned and Grave Fathers, it is fit
they take Notice of that Hierarchy, which is already
established in Competition with their Lordships. For
they have a Bishop consecrated by the Pope. This
Bishop hath his subalternate Officers of all Kinds, as
Vicars General, Archdeacons, Rural Deans, Apparitors, and such like; neither are they Nominal or
Titular Officers alone, but they all exercise their Jurisdictions, make their Ordinary Visitations through
the Kingdom, keep Courts, and determine Ecclesiastical Causes. And, which is an Argument of more
Confidence, they keep ordinary Intelligence by their
Agent at Rome, and hold Correspondence with the
Nuncios and Cardinals, both at Bruxells and in France.
Neither are the Seculars alone grown to this Height;
but the Regulars are more active and dangerous, and
have taken deeper Root. They have already planted
their Societies and Colleges of both Sexes; they have
settled Tenements, Houses, Libraries, Vestments, and
all necessary Provisions, to travel or stay at Home.
Nay, even at this Time, they intended to hold a concurrent Assembly with this Parliament. But now,
since His Sacred Majesty hath extended His Regal
Arm, and since the Lords of His Council have, by
their Authority, caused this Nest of Wasps to be
digged out of the Earth, and their Convention to be
scattered, and since your Lordships join in Courage
and Resolution (at least) to reduce these People to
their lawful Restraint, that they may not do more
Hurt; we conceive great Hope and Comfort that
Almighty God will henceforth prosper our Endeavours, both at Home and Abroad. But now, my
Lords, to come to the chief Errand of this Meeting,
which is to make known unto you the Approbation
of our House of that Petition to His Majesty, wherein
ye were pleased to require our Concurrence; the
House hath taken it into serious Consideration, and,
from the Beginning to the End, approve of every
Word, and much commend your happy Pen. Only
we are required to present unto you a few Additions,
whereby we conceive the Petition may be more agreeable to the Statutes which are desired to be put in
Execution, and to a former Petition granted by His
Majesty, recorded in both Houses, confirmed under
the Great Seal of England, and published in all the
Courts of our ordinary Justice. But these Things
were propounded not as our Resolutions, or as Matters to raise Debate, or Dispute; but commend them
only as our Advice and Desire; being ready, notwithstanding, to join with your Lordships in the Petition
as now it is, if your Lordships shall not find these
Reasons to be of Weight."
Then the said Earl delivered the said Additions,
which were read 1a et 2a
vice, and inserted in the Petition. And then the said Petition was also read (vide
postea 7 Apr.).
The said Petition, being read, was put to the Question, and generally Assented unto, nemine dissentiente.
Lords to attend His Majesty, to know when He will be attended with this Petition.
These Lords are appointed to attend the King, to
know His Majesty's Pleasure, when both Houses shall
be admitted to present this Petition to His Majesty:
The Lord President, Lord Great Chamberlain, Lord
Message to the House of Commons concerning it.
And a Message was sent unto the Commons, by the
Lord Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Jones, to let them
know that the Lords have approved of their Additions,
and inserted them in the said Petition, and passed the
same by the General Vote of their House, and appointed certain Lords to know His Majesty's Pleasure
when both Houses shall be admitted to present the
The Commons received this Message with much Chearfulness, and will be ready to attend at the Time His
Majesty shall appoint.

The Lords Committees on the Bill for the better preserving of His Majesty's Revenue are to meet on Monday next (31 Martii), at Eight in the Morning.
Increase of Trade.
