opinion, that as the petitioner has paid into the treasury the sum of five hundred and thirty-four pounds nine
shillings and four-pence halfpenny, in consequence of his father having been security for Benjamin Cawood,
former sheriff and collector of public taxes for Charles county, who is since insolvent, it would be reasonable
and just to indulge the petitioner for the balance due until the first day of December next; they therefore sub-
mit the following resolution:
RESOLVED, That all proceedings against Charles Gardiner, and others, for the recovery of the balance due
by him to the state of Maryland, be and they are hereby suspended until after the day of . next,
and that the said Charles Gardiner be and he is hereby indulged in the payment of the said balance till the pe-
riod before mentioned; provided that the judgment aforesaid shall continue and be in full force, notwithstanding
