William Scout


A Petition from William Scout, of the Manor of Moreland, was presented to the House, and read, setting forth, That the Petitioner, agreeable to the directions of the House, had waited on Captain Josiah Hart, and requested him to pay the account allowed by the Committee to the Petitioner, for his services as Fugleman to the Company of the said Hart, and that the Captain had absolutely refused payment of the same.

The House taking the foregoing Petition immediately into consideration,

Resolved, That the said Josiah Hart be forthwith brought to the Bar of the House by the Sergeant-at-Arms, to answer for his contempt of the order of the House.

And a Warrant for that purpose being made out at the table, and signed by the Speaker, was delivered to the Sergeant-at-Arms.
