. ---Petition of Company of Grocers of London and of divers Apothecaries of the said city [to H. C.] The grocers are an ancient company consisting of merchants, retailing grocers, apothecaries, and others of divers trades. The apothecaries' medicines and compositions have been yearly viewed by the president and censors of the College of Physicians and also by the wardens of the company assisted by some skilful apothecaries ; about seven years ago divers apothecaries petitioned His Majesty for a new corporation of apothecaries only; the petition was referred to the now Lord Chancellor and Sir Henry Yelverton, who in May 1614 reported in favour of a separate company, against law and to the disturbance of trade. The King, thus misinformed, issued a warrant for a patent for incorporating apothecaries members of the grocers or any other companies within seven miles of London into a company, and to free them from their oaths and taxes to their several corporations, giving also to the new company the sole right of selling apothecaries' wares and sundry drugs, conserves, and distilled waters, to the great injury of the grocers, comfit-makers, and distillers. The late Lord Chancellor Egerton never affixed the great seal to the patent, but after his death it was done by the present Lord Chancellor. Disputes arising between the grocers and the new company, the grocers and others petitioned the King, by whom the matters were referred to the Lord Chancellor and Sir Henry Yelverton with others, when they two, without report to the King, made an order restraining the grocers in many particulars of their trade, and a proclamation was issued, 4th Aug. 1620, that none but members of the new company should make any medicinal recipe, or sell or distil oils or waters within seven miles of London, and that none should presume to petition His Majesty for alteration of the same. Pray for the repeal of the said patent and for examination of the means by which it was obtained. See C. J., I. 756. 6th April 1624.
.-Petition of the master and company of the ship called the “ William and Thomas ” (to H.C.] Had agreed to go with Captain North to the river of the Amazons to form a plantation. They started 15th March 1619-20, were eleven months away from England, had received no wages, the captain saying that the goods on board the ship from which they should have been paid had been seized by the customs officers. Can obtain no relief in any court. Pray for redress.

Feb. 24.-Draft of “ An Act for the repair of * the great road and highway to London from the north " part of England, between Biggleswade and Baldock.” The road is so worn by carts, wains, and “ drifts” of cattle, &c., that it is almost impassable, though the adjacent inhabitants give their labour for its repair according to statute; tolls to be levied for repair of the road. Endorsed, Lecta 1", 24° Feb., 19° Jac., on which day Parliament, according to the Journals, was not sitting. Bill not mentioned in Journals.
