a continual Expence to the County, and although large Quantities
of the Public Tobacco have been frequently levied and expended
thereon, hath always proved defective and insufficient to restrain the
Attempts of Criminals and other Prisoners; great Numbers of whom
have escaped to the Loss and Vexation of the Sheriffs and Suitors,
