<p>After the Court had been set a considerable time, Council moved for an Order to warrant the Sheriffs of London and Middlesex for the delivery of the Jesuites in Newgate, who are Ordered by the King and Council, to be sent to the Scilly Islands; but the Court returned for Answer, that they could grant no Order, the matter not being before them, but it was his Majesties Pleasure to Reprieve them, he might dispose of them as he thought fit; and the Sheriffs must deliver them.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="16820116004"/>In Reply to which the Council cited a President that had been used upon the like occasion, and the Sheriffs said they would be glad to be rid of them, so they might be saved harmless, but in conclusion my Lord Chief-Justice utterly refused to grant any Order.</p> </div1>
