The King's Answer to the Address for a War.] April 26. The Speaker reported his majesty's Answer to the Address for a War with France, which was as follows:
"W. R. I receive this Address, as a mark of the confidence you have in me. Which I take very kindly, and shall endeavour by all my actions to confirm you in it; I assure you that my ambition shall never be any argument to incline me to engage in a war, that may expose the nation either to danger or expence. But, in the present case, I look upon the War to be so much already declared by France against England, that it is not so properly an act of choice, as an inevitable necessity, in our defence.--I shall only tell you, that, as I have ventured myself, and all that is dear to me, to secure this nation from what it suffered, I am ready still to do the same, in order to the preserving it from all its enemies; and, as I cannot doubt of such assistance from you, as shall be suitable to your advice to me to declare War against a powerful enemy, so you may rely upon me, that no part of that which you shall give for the carrying it on with success, shall be diverted by me, to any other use."

There is an
Report concerning Sir T. Armstrong.] Sir Joseph Tredenham reported from the Committee of Grievances, the matter to them referred, concerning sir Thomas Armstrong, viz. "That having summoned sir Sam. Astrey, the clerk of the crown, with the record of the outlawry of Hill. 35 and 36 Car. 2, it appeared that the Quint. Ex. was Lune prox. post fest. sanct. Andreæ Apost. 35 Car. 2di. That the Award of prosecution, was Die Sab. prox. post quindec. let. Trinitat. 36. upon a Nihil dicit, which was but six months after the said outlawry. That sir S. Astrey being examined, declared he was present at the Arraignment of sir T. Armstrong, who, being asked why execution should not be awarded against him, said, is enacted, That, if the party outlawed shall, that by the statute of 5 & 6 Edw. 6. c. 11. it within one year next after the outlawry pronounced, yield himself to the chief-justice of England, for the time being, and offer to traverse the Indictment or Appeal, that then he should be received to the said traverse. That he was answered by the lord chief justice Jeffreys, that he could pretend to no benefit, since he did not render himself to the lord chief-justice, as that statute requires; and that the court proceeded thereupon, to award Judg ment against him as a Traitor, and believes he was executed accordingly. That Mrs. Matthews, (daughter of the said sir Thomas) being likewise examined, said she was in the court of King's-Bench, when her father was "arraigned. That he demanded to have the statute of 5 and 6 of Ed. 6. read, and it was refused. That be, likewise, demanded council and a trial, but it was denied; and he urging that Holloway, who was in the said circumstance, had his trial, the Chief Justice said they had enough against Holloway. To which sir Thomas replied, that then they had not against him. And added, His blood be upon him,' meaning the Lord Chief Justice, who said, 'Let it! I am clamour-proof! That she added, her father had council in Newgate, and advice from an unknown band: that he was very much loaded with irons and very ill used, that her sister was struck by the keeper of New
