The Lord Archbishop of Canterbury declared to the
House, That, according to a former Order of this House,

Brief is dated 29th of June in the same Year, for Redemption of the English Captives at Algires, etc. the
which Collection, together with the One Hundred and
Fifty Pounds given by the Lords in Parliament, amount
unto the Sum of Two Thousand Eight Hundred Fortyeight Pounds, Three Shillings, and Seven Pence; and
that his Grace had paid out of the said Collection, according to the several Orders of the Lords, divers several
Sums, amounting in all unto Two Thousand Seven
Hundred Ninty-nine Pounds, Eight Shillings, Ten Pence
Halfpenny; and so remained in his Hands, upon an Account thereof taken by a Committee of this House, on
the 21st of February 1626, the Sum of Forty-eigt
Pounds, Fourteen Shillings, Eight Pence Halfpenny:
And that the said Committee allowed unto the Collecter of the said Briefs, Twenty-nine Pounds, Seventeen Shillings, Four Pence, as may appear by the Account taken by the said Committee, and signed with
their Hands: videlicet, H. Manchester, E. Dorsett,

The which Account his Grace delivered into the House
this Day. His Grace further shewed, That he had
paid the Sum of Eighteen Pounds, Seventeen Shillings,
Four Pence Halfpenny (the full Remainder of the total Sum collected), unto one Thomas Wood, to the Use
of Sir Thomas Roe, His Majesty's Ambassador at Constantinople, towards the Redemption of one John Daniell
from the Turks; which Money he paid upon an Order
of the Council Board, dated the 28th of October
1626; and affirmed that he had now paid the full Sum
collected, as abovesaid; the which Order of the Council
Board his Grace also delivered to the House.
The Lord Keeper demanded Leave to withdraw
himself for a while.

and was brought to his Place next below the Lord Maynard, where his Lordship sat a while, and presently removed to the Wool-sack, as Lord Keeper of the Great

Then Edward Lord Howard of Estryke was brought

Judgement given in the King's Bench complained of by the Commons.
The House was put in Mind of the Business appointed for this Day: videlicet, The Judges of the
King's Bench to declare what their Judgement was there
(which the Commons complain of), and upon what
Mr. Justice Whitlocke began, and declared the Matter
of Fact; and affirmed, "That they gave no Judgement at all, but only remitted the Party to Prison,
quousque, etc. id est, until the Court might be better
(Vide the Effect of all the Declarations of the said
Judges of this Matter, the 15th of April, ad hosignumΔ).
Message from the Commons, by Sir Roberte Phillipps
Message from the H.C. to complain against the E. of Suffolk, for Words spoke by him against Mr. Selden.
That they had a great Care to preserve the mutual
Respect betwixt both Houses; and, that no particular
Accident should trouble or impeach the same. They
put their Lordships in Mind that this House hath been
very ready to redress Wrongs done to their House,
though by a Peer and Member hereof; and complained
of a great Injury done by the Earl of Suffolke to their
House in general, and in particular to Mr. John Selden,
whom they employed in preparing of Things fit to
present unto their Lordships, and which are now in
Agitation in this House.
The Wrong they complained of was for Words
spoken by the said Earl of Suff. unto Sir John Strangwayes, in the Committee Chamber; which Words ho
read out of a Paper, to this Effect: videlicet, "Sir
John Strangwayes, will you not hang Selden."who
answered, "I know no Cause." He the said Earl replied, "By God, he hath razed a Record, and therefore deserves to be hanged." For which Wrong
the Commons demand Justice against the said Earl of
E. of Suffolls protests his Innocence.
The Messengers withdrawn; the Earl of Suff. protested, upon his Honour, and upon his Soul, That he
never spake those Words to Sir John Strangwayes.
Answer to the H.C.
The Messengers, admitted again, were answered:
It is the earnest Desire of the Lords that all good
Respect and Correspondency may be kept and maintained between both Houses; wherefore the Lords presently entered into Examination of this Point. And the
Earl of Suff. doth, upon his Honour, and upon his
Soul, peremptorily deny that he spake those Words to
Sir John Strangwayes.
