Answer to the King.
Mr. Glyn reports the Conference with the Lords:
That the Lord Mandevile said, That it was the happiest
Thing that could be presented in these Times, for the
Lords and Commons to speak One Language: That the
Lords do agree to the former Part of the Answer to be
sent to his Majesty; and that so much of the latter
Part of it be omitted, as the House of Commons have
presented Reasons for the Leaving out of the same:
And that this be the Manner of sending it; That the
Speaker of the Lords House do write a Letter, in the
Name of both Houses, to the Lord Falkland, to present
the same to his Majesty: And that it be sent by Sir
Peter Killigrewe: And that the Lord General be made
acquainted with the Desire of both Houses, that he
may take Care of the King's Subjects, that they be not
plundered by the King's Forces, but that he advance for
Letter from Kent.
For the Letter out of Kent, the Lords conceive that
Misinformation causes often an Aspersion without Cause:
That they called the Clerk of the House to Account
whether any Order was for the Discharge of Sir Vivian
Molineux, only an Order from the Committee of the
Safety of the Kingdom, to bring him to be examined by
them; and therefore if a Crime in them, both Houses
are concerned therein: And for Brewer, Servant to the
Earl of St. Albons, the Lords sent for him to be examined by them also.
Answer to the King.
Resolved, upon the Question, That this House doth
agree with the Lords in this Answer, to be sent unto his
Majesty by Sir Pet. Killigrew, in a Letter to the Lord
Faulkland; to be sent by the Speaker of their House,
in Name of both Houses.
