ACTS


At a Session of Assembly, begun and held at the City of Annap-
olis, in Maryland, the Tenth Day of July, 1729, the following Laws
were Enacted.

An Act repealing Part of an Act, Intituled, An Act against Forging
and Counterfeiting of Foreign Coins, Gold or Silver; made at a
Session of Assembly, begun and held at the then Town and Port
of Annapolis, the Twenty Sixth Day of March, Anno Domini
1707.
Whereas at a Session of Assembly, begun and held at the City of
Annapolis, Anno 1707, there was an Act passed, to prevent, amongst
other Things, the Clipping of all Sorts of Foreign Coins; but foras-
much as such Coins, both of Gold and Silver, do at this Time pass
Current by Weight, and not by Tale, as heretofore, whereby the
Mischiefs of Clipping are effectually prevented; and seeing that the
Cutting or Clipping of Foreign Coins is now in some measure nec-
essary for the making of Change; this present General Assembly
taking into their serious Consideration the grievous Penalties in-
flicted by the said Act upon Persons Clipping Foreign Coins as
aforesaid, have thought fit to repeal so much of the said Act as
related thereunto :
Wherefore, Be it Enacted, by the Right Honourable the Lord
Proprietor, by and with the Advice and Consent of his Lordship's
Governour, and the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly, and
the Authority of the same, That that Part of the said Act that relates
to Clipping the Coins therein mention'd, be, and is hereby utterly
repealed, and made void.

A Supplementary Act to the Acts* for regulating Writs of Error,
and granting Appeals from and to the Courts of Common Law,
within this Province; and for Regulating Appeals from the
Court of Chancery.

Whereas, in and by the said Act, amongst other Things, it is
enacted and contained, That in all Appeals and Writs of Error from
the Courts of Law, to the Governour and Council, it should and
might be sufficient for the Council only, to hear and determine Mat-
ters of Controversy, whereof the first of the Council in Commission,
being present, should preside; whose Judgment thereupon should be
definitive, in as full and ample Manner, as if the said Governour
were actually present and presiding.
