✹ About Monday 29 July 1667 Terry Foreman on 24 Jul 2019 • Link " The Speaker, they found, was kept from coming in the morning to the House on purpose, till after the King was come to the House of Lords." L&M: Milward (p. 84) has an account. The Commons were summoned by Black Rod to the Lords in indecent haste. Cf. Marvell (5th Advice, ll. 857-8): 'The Speaker summon'd to the Lords repairs,/ Nor gave the Commons leave to say their pray'rs'.
