And that all Causes, Pleas, Process, and Proceedings, either Civil

of Dorchester, to be held the second Tuesday of March in this pres-
ent Year, shall be, and are, by Virtue of this Act, adjourned and
continued from the said second Tuesday of March, until the second

And whereas many Persons who are Plaintiffs in Actions now
depending in the said Courts, and which would be determined at the
said first and second Tuesdays of March, if the said Courts were to
sit and proceed to Business, may be indigent and necessitous, and may
greatly, if not wholly depend on the Sums of Money or Tobacco, for
which they have commenced and prosecuted such Actions, for sup-
plying their Necessities, Payment of their Debts, or carrying on the
Business of their Professions.
