"Whereas, by an Order of the House of Commons, dated the 8th of this Instant February, the Petition of the Inhabitants of Yarmouth, Lynn, Blakeney, Wells, Alborow, and Southwold, is referred to this Committee's Consideration, the same being for a present Convoy, to guard the Fishing Fleets employed in the North Seas and Island, and to report their Opinions to the House: Ordered, That it be reported to both Houses of Parliament, as the Opinion and Recommendation of this Committee, That, forasmuch as the Safeguard of the said Fishing is of very great Concernment to the whole Kingdom, there may be presently taken up, and employed for the Island Guard, Two Vessels, both bearing not above One Hundred Men in the Whole, over and besides the (fn. *) Ships agreed upon for the next Summer's Fleet."

This Day the Lieutenant of The Tower brought Sir John Maynard to the Bar.

Then the Speaker told him, "That, this Day being appointed for him to put in his Answer to the Charge of High Treason and other High Crimes and Mis demeanors brought up from the House of Commons against him, their Lordships do now expect him to put in his Answer accordingly; else their Lordships will take his Charge pro Confesso, and will proceed upon it."

Sir John Maynard answered, "That, with all Duty and Respects, he did acknowledge this House to be the Supreme Court of Judicatory; and desired to know what the Charge is against him, and to have a Copy of it under the Clerk's Hand; and that he might have Counsel assigned him."

Then he withdrew.

And the House taking his Desires into Consideration, he was called in again.

And the Speaker told him, "That this House takes his not kneeling as a continued Contempt to this House, and esteems it so; and required him again to kneel."

Sir John Maynard refused again to kneel; saying, "It is a Confession of his Delinquency; and will destroy his Cause; and desired to be pardoned for doing it."

Receives a Copy of his Charge.

Then the Speaker further told him, "That, notwithstanding these, the House allows him a Copy of his Charge, and Fourteen Days to put in his Answer; and will assign him Counsel, when he delivers in their Names: And this was their Lordships meer Favour."

Sir John Maynard desired further Time till after Easter, to answer; and Liberty to go abroad with a Keeper, or else to be bailed: Which the House denied.
