x Preface. was especially called for this purpose, but the news of the Queen's death on August 1 caused the postponement of that work to the next year. In 1712, after several false starts, the court-house for Baltimore County was fixed at Joppa. Hitherto for the Acts of Assembly we have had the MS. records. But Liber LL 4, which contained the Acts of these sessions, cannot be found. We have been compelled, therefore, to take the Acts from the compilation published in 1765 by the Rev. Thomas Bacon, who had the missing Liber. He prints only the public laws, giving private bills only by titles, which it has seemed superfluous to reprint, as inquirers can consult Bacon. A few Acts not printed by Bacon have been taken from Baskett's Acts of the Maryland Assembly (1723). For the Acts of 1715, amounting to a complete code, we have fortu nately a manuscript record among the Calvert Papers.
