Mr. Nicholson replied, that, being instructed only to support the articles
of impeachment against John Pickering, unless the court was ready to hear
them on the said articles of impeachment generally, the managers would
withdraw for further instructions from the House of Representatives.

They accordingly withdrew.

Mr. Harper was then called on by the President to proceed within the rule.
