Liber H. S.

p. 141

An Act Impowering the Justices of Frederick County Court, to levy
on the taxable Inhabitants of the said County, a Sum of Current
Money for the Use therein mentioned.

[Preamble.]

Whereas George Gordon, late Sheriff of Frederick County, by his
humble Petition to this present General Assembly, has set forth, That
when the Petitioner was Sheriff of Frederick County, the Magistrates
of said County were of Opinion that the Ordinary License Money
belonged to the County, that the Petitioner accounted with the County
for One Hundred and Eighteen Pounds, as per Certificate doth
appear, being Fines arising on the Breach of the Act of Assembly for
regulating Ordinaries, &c. and Ordinary License Money, and the
Magistrates of the said County thought they could not levy the afore-
said Sum without an Act of Assembly; therefore, the Petitioner
prayed there might be an Act passed, to impower the Magistrates of
Frederick County, to levy the atoresaid Sum of One Hundred and
Eighteen Pounds, with the Sheriff's Commission, to enable the Peti-
tioner to pay the said Sum to the Commissioners of the Loan Office,
and prevent his Bonds being put in Suit: Which being thought

reasonable, it is prayed that it may be enacted, And be it Enacted, by
the Right Honourable the Lord Proprietary, by and with the Advice
and Consent of his Lordship's Governor, and the Upper and Lower
Houses of Assembly, and the Authority of the same, That the Jus-
tices of Frederick County, for the Time being, shall, and may, and
they are hereby authorized and directed to assess and levy on the
taxable Inhabitants of the said County, the aforesaid Sum of One
Hundred and Eighteen Pounds Current Money, in Bills of Credit,
together with the Sheriff's Salary of Five Pounds per Centum for
Collection, at the laying of the next County Levy; which said Sum
of One Hundred and Eighteen Pounds, shall be collected by the
Sheriff of the said County, who is hereby authorized and directed to
collect the same, and to pay the said Money, when so collected, to the
aforesaid George Gordon, or his Executors or Administrators.
