                    Letter of Transmittal.            xxxi

      hog stealing, whom, it was said, he had deliberately allowed to escape, the court
      declaring that the fine was to be doubled if the fugitive were not brought before
      the Calvert County Court at its next session (page 477).
        It is of interest to note that the boundary dispute between Maryland and
      Virginia involving the line between these two colonies on the Eastern Shore
      cropped up in a suit for debt instituted in December, 1664, against a certain
      James Jolly, who was accused of conveying his family and all his movable
      goods to a plantation on the Eastern Shore, which it was feared might be out
      of the jurisdiction of this Province and in the government of Virginia (pages
        The editor takes this occasion to thank Mr. Louis Dow Scisco for his invalu
      able help in preparing this volume for the press. The copy was made directly
      from the original manuscript books, in part by Miss Lucy Harwood Harrison of
      the Society's staff, and in part by Mr. Scisco. Those who are familiar with
      the difficulties presented in deciphering the clerical handwriting of the mid-
      seventeenth century, will appreciate how much students are indebted to them
      both for the meticulous accuracy with which they have done their work. In
      addition Mr. Scisco has corrected the proof, and prepared the very full index
      covering both names and subjects.
        The next volume of the Archives to appear will be the Proceedings and
      Acts of the General Assembly of Maryland for the years 1752 to 1754, inclu
      sive, which will be the fiftieth of the general series and the twenty-third of
      the Assembly sub-series. It is hoped that this will be followed by a volume of
      Proceedings of the Court of Chancery from 1668, when separate records for
      this court began to be kept, down to the year 1700.
                                Respectfully submitted,
                                   SAMUEL K. DENNIS,

                                   J. HALL PLEASANTS,
                                   JOHN M. VINCENT,

                                      Committee on Publication.
