[Speeches and proceedings in Parliament], [1628].

Manuscript, in a single secretary hand, of a collection of about a hundred Parliamentary speeches, messages, and debates, primarily on the subject of the liberty of the subject and the petition of right, and all dated 1628. The volume contains several speeches by Sir Edward Coke, including one on the freedoms of the subject, and another arguing that detaining a prisoner by commandment of the king, without expressing the cause, is against the law and liberty of the subject. Messages by King Charles I agree to draw up a bill for the confirmation of Magna Carta; respond to the petition of right; and voice his objections to the freedoms of the subject. Other items in the manuscript include the House's petition against recusants; the mayor of Taunton's complaint about billeting soldiers; and an act for the increase of shipping. At the end of the volume is a land indenture, followed by a document, on parchment, in a faded 15th-century hand.
