And Be It Enacted, by the Right Honourable the Lord Proprie-
tary, by and with the Advice and Consent of his Lordship's Gov-
ernor, and the Upper and Lower House of Assembly, and the Author-
ity of the same, That at the next November County Court within
this Province, and at every November Court during the Continuance
