Excerpt from Letters Illustrative of the Reign of William III., From 1696 to 1708, Vol. 3 of 3: Addressed to the Duke of Shrewsbury
They proceeded, yesterday, so far as to make an amendment in the body of the bill, which excluded all other clauses. The commissioners' names were filled up. Sir Cyrill Wyche being put at the head of them, by reason he had been one of the Lords Justices.
The King's answer to the address being reported in the morning, the House resolved to wait on his Majesty again, and return him thanks. The Irish bill was passed this day, and ordered to be sent up to the Lords; which will be done to-morrow.
We have, likewise, agreed upon the number and qualifications of the Commissioners of Accounts. They are to be but five; and no member of the House is capable of it,-ao that Mr. How's project is disappointed in that particular. The balloting is put off till Friday. I expected we should make an end by Saturday, and the business we have before us might be brought within that compass; but we have a strong rumour that the Lords will reject the Irish Bill, or make amendments in it, which amounts to the same thing.
