    10.  AND BE IT ENACTED, That as a better compensation to the
said clerks and register for the books they are obliged to procure,
and for making on their records fair entries of their proceedings,
they shall respectively be entitled to charge, demand and receive,

for the like services, that is to say, for transcribing the docket entries

An Act to provide for the conveyance and return of Process issued
    from the Courts of one County to the Officers of another. 
Lib. TH.
    No. 6, fol. 46.
    By 1819, ch. 144, s. 3, the provisions of this act are extended to the court of

Passed Feb. 6, 1818.
    WHEREAS, the trial of causes, civil and criminal, is often delayed
by the irregular manner in which process is conveyed from the
courts of one county to the officers of another county, and by the
want of convenient proof of the delivery of such process to the officers
to whom the same is directed, as well as by the frequent neglect
of such officers to serve and return such process; and it appears
to be necessary, for the speedy and due administration of
justice, that an effective remedy should be provided in that behalf,
    1.  BE IT ENACTED, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That
from and after the passage of this act, the clerk or register of any
Process issuing
from one county
to be served in
another, how to
be conveyed.
