Session
Laws
p. 31

adjourned their Court to Tuesday the 30th Day of October Instant,
in order to finish the same; but for that a Member of the Lower
House, who is general concerned in the Causes there, is obliged to
attend his Duty in the Assembly; and that his Clients and himself
would be greatly prejudic'd by his involuntary Absence, should the
Causes (several of which cannot be continued, as the Law now
stands, 'till November Court,) be try'd; or those he is concern'd for,
be condemn'd unheard: For Prevention whereof,
Be it Enacted, by the Right Honourable the Lord Proprietary, by
and with the Advice and Consent of his Lordship's Governour, and
the Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly, and the Authority of
the same, That all Suits, Pleas and Process, Civil and Criminal, that
were not determin'd and ended in August Court last past, in Balte-
more County-court, shall be, and are by Virtue of this Act, con-
tinued from August Court, to November Court next ensuing; any
Thing in the Act to limit the Continuance of Actions, or other Law,
Usage, or Custom, or Defect of Sitting and Proceeding according
to the Adjournment aforesaid, notwithstanding.
