Heads for the Conference.
"To express to the House of Commons the Effect of
what His Majesty said here Yesterday, and at the
Meeting at Whitehall; and also to put them in Mind
what was delivered here the First and Second Days of
this Parliament; and that His Majesty said, He would
make it all good.
"To express, That His Majesty's necessary Affairs
will admit of no Delay, but require a present and
"To acquaint them with the great Distempers Scoland is now in; how that the Scots Army hath
pitched their Tents in the Field, near Duns, in Scotland, and have taken Four English Troops, and they
threaten the Invasion of Northumberland; how that
the Scots have put themselves under the Protection
of the French King; that His Majesty's Honour in
Foreign Parts is concerned in this Business, which He
is to uphold as His Life.
"That, in all Civility and Good manners, as well as
Necessity, the Trust is fit to be put upon His Majesty;
yet He must trust them hereafter; and that His Majesty will not break His Word with them, and there
is a Necessity His Majesty must be trusted hereafter;
that Delay is as good as Denial, and Time lost cannot
"For the Three Propositions, videlicet, Religion,
Propriety of Goods, and Privileges of Parliament, His
Majesty will Graciously he teken to them, and relieve them, and give them what can in Reason be de
"For Religion, to let them know His Majesty s
Heart and Conscience will go together, and that He
will die in the Religion of the Church of England;
and He will be as forward to prevent Innovations as
any, and will see that His Archbishops and Bishops
shall take Order accordingly.
"That Ship Money was never a Profit to the King;
but he spent that and more out of His own Revenue,
for to preserve the Dominion of the Seas, and, if
they did put the King into any other Way to secure
the Seas, He would hear them.
"That this House hath voted, and declared as their
Opinion, That His Majesty's Supply shall have the
Preccdency, and be resolved of, before any other
"To desire the House of Commons would go on
with that first; as that which, in the Opinion of this
House, is held most necessary That their Lordships
in this do not move Subsidies, but rather decline it;
only give their Advice herein This being done, their
Lordships shall be ready to join in any Thing to carry
on this great Business."
