160        RULES of OFFICE.

    They are not to grant administration, receive
the inventory, pass the account, or proceed in 
any matter, relative to estates, libelled against,
or complained of before the commissary general,
but must stop all proceedings, until the issue of
such litigation be regularly certified, by an order
from the office.   Nor are they to take cognizance
of any case of controversy, but refer all
such matters to the determination of the commissary
general.
 

    A caveat entered in the prerogative court, against
the probate of a will, letters of administration,
or other matters there cognizable, is
in force for three months only.  And, all appeals
from the sentence or decree of the commissary
general, must be entered within the
space of thirty days from the giving of such sentence,
and must within thirty days more be
prosecuted before a court of delegates.
No appeal is granted, except the persons
against whom such sentence doth pass, first
comply with the same.
