; 686 THE CHANCELLOR'S CASE.

pounds per annum, for the past year, or so much as has become
due and remains unpaid; with legal interest on such portions as
have been demanded and withheld. And he also claims the benefit
of some such, provision as the General Assembly may now think
proper to make, for the regular quarterly payment of that amount
hereafter, during the continuance of his commission. " It is justice
that establisheth a nation. " The chancellor asks no more than
justice. His case is with you.

THEODORICK BLAND,

Chancellor of the State of Maryland.
Annapolis, 26th December, 1825.

This Memorial was presented and read in the House of Dele-
gates, on the third day after the commencement of the session,
and referred to a committee; who made a report thereupon, (b)
After which, the matter having been considered, was called up,
discussed, and finally passed upon by each House. Whence it
may be fairly assumed, that the following resolutions, recognizing
the chancellor's claims, may be considered as a deliberate and final
judgment of the General Assembly of Maryland affirming, in sub-
stance and in general terms, the leading and material principles set
forth and asserted by the chancellor in his Memorial. Considered
in this point of view, this is a case of much and lasting importance
as regards the judiciary in general as well as in relation to the
chancellor in particular.

17th February, 1826. By the General Assembly of Maryland,
Resolved, That the salary of the Chancellor shall be three thousand
four hundred dollars during the continuance of the commission of the
present chancellor, and no longer; and after the expiration of his
commission, such salary shall be provided for the succeeding chan-
cellor as the legislature shall then think proper to fix and establish.

3d March, 1826. By the General Assembly of Maryland, Resolved,
That the treasurer of the Western Shore pay unto the order of Theod-
orick Bland, the sum of three thousand four hundred dollars for his
salary as chancellor for the year ending on the sixteenth day of
February 1826; and the salary of the present chancellor, as declared
by a resolution passed at this session of the General Assembly, shall
be paid to him quarterly by the treasurer of the Western Shore,
during the continuance of his commission and no longer.

(b) Jour. H. Del. 28th December, 1825, and 24th January, 1826.
