Ordered by the Commons assembled in Parliament, that the several and respective committees in the several counties of England and Wales, be injoyned, and are hereby required to disperse through their counties, and publish in all the market-towns, the ordinance passed on Saturday last concerning petitioning; and that the knights and burgesses of the several and respective counties do send copies of the said ordinance, to the said committees to be dispersed and published accordingly. It is further ordered, that Edward Husband the printer do forthwith print a sufficient number of these ordinances, and bring them in by to morrow twelve of the clock at the farthest.

While all subjects have the right to petition the Parliament, yet by tumultuous assemblies Parliament has been hindered in its labours. No petition is to be brought up by more than 20 persons: it is to be delivered to some member to be presented. -- Cf. Steele.
