CHAP.
 LXX.

                                LAWS of MARYLAND.

    To execute all these various duties, he is authorised to choose an assistant, who, as well as himself, is to
take an oath of office.  And, before the intendant enters on his office, he is, before the executive, to give
bond with security in the sum of £. 20,000, for the faithful performance of his duty.  In case of a vacancy
in this office, the appointment is vested in the executive.
    Other duties and powers have been conferred on the intendant by other acts; but his office was suffered
to terminate at the period fixed by the act.

                                            CHAP. LXXI.
An ACT to empower James Wignell to sell the real estate of John Ashburner,
                        deceased, for the payment of his debts.  PR.
                                            CHAP. LXXII.
An ACT enabling the governor to exercise certain powers therein
                                                mentioned.
Preamble.     WHEREAS certain provisions were made for the benefit and relief of
disabled and maimed officers, soldiers and mariners, by an act passed
at the October session, seventeen hundred and seventy-eight, and the
execution of the said law was given to the justices of the orphans court in each
county:  And whereas the officers of the Maryland line under such circumstances,
have petitioned the general assembly to place the execution of said law in the
hands of the governor, so far as said law relates to commissioned officers; and it
appearing reasonable and proper to this general assembly to grant their petition,
Execution of
law place in
governor, &c.
    II.  Be it enacted, by the general assembly of Maryland, That the execution
of so much of said law above recited as relates to commissioned officers of the
Maryland line, be placed in the hands of the governor, and he is hereby authorised
to exercise the powers given by said law, in as ample a manner as the
justices of the orphans court were empowered to do.
                                            CHAP. LXXIII.
    An ACT for the benefit of Thomas Bacon and James Bacon.  PR.
                                            CHAP. LXXIV.
An ACT to repeal such part of the acts of assembly therein mentioned, as authorised
    Thomas Contee to collect the debts of William Molleson and of William
    and Robert Molleson.  PR.
                                            CHAP. LXXV.
An ACT to authorise the issuing grants for the lands therein mentioned.
Preamble.     WHEREAS, by the act, entitled, An act to appropriate certain lands
to the use of the officers and soldiers of this state, and for the sale of
vacant lands, it was enacted, that all the lands within this state in
Washington county, westward of Fort Cumberland, and for which located warrants
had not issued or surveys been made under common warrants, and were
then bonâ fide the property of any subject of this or any of the United States,
and on which the money had been actually paid, should be and were thereby appropriated
to discharge the engagement of lands thereto made to the officers and
soldiers of this state, and the residue to the use of the public, as the general assembly
should thereafter direct, and that no grant should issue on any survey
made in virtue of such warrants before the order of the general assembly:  And
whereas divers of the citizens of this state are justly entitled to have their titles
perfected in lands lying to the westward of Fort Cumberland, on certificates of
survey made before the passing of the said act, in virtue of warrants fairly obtained
and duly executed, and the with-holding their patents, is not only prejudicial
to them but injurious to the state, in delaying the settlement and improvement
of those lands,
Land confirmed,
&c.
    II.  Be it enacted, by the general assembly of Maryland, That at any time after
the first day of July next, a grant may issue in the usual mode to any citizen of
this or any of the United States, for any land within this state westward of Fort
Cumberland, regularly surveyed, by virtue of a special or common warrant obtained
