1783.
                                            CHAP. I.
An ACT respecting registers of vessels, and to direct the entry and
            clearing vessels from and to the British dominions.
    WHEREAS since the treaty of peace between Great-Britain and the
United States, it is improper to prevent subjects of Great-Britain from
holding property in vessels belonging to and owned with citizens of
this state, and vessels ought to be entered and cleared from or to any part of the
British dominions:
Preamble.
    II.  Be it enacted, by the general assembly of Maryland, That hereafter, in
granting registers, such part thereof as prevents the subjects of Great-Britain
from holding shares or interest in vessels, one third whereof belongs to citizens of
this state, shall in future be omitted, and every register hereafter granted shall be
corrected so as only to prevent subjects of any state at enmity or war with this
state, or the United States, or any of them, from having property in any vessel
declared by law to belong to this state, and entitled to privileges as such; and
the oath required of the master of every vessel, on entry, shall also be amended in
the same manner; and it is hereby declared to be lawful for any naval officer to
enter or clear any vessel from or to any part of the British dominions, in the same
manner as to any other kingdom or state in peace with this state.
Registers to
be altered,
&c.

a public road, and kept up at the expence of Nathaniel Manning.  Three commissioners are appointed
to lay it out as a waggon road, 20 feet wide, and to ascertain the damage done to the persons through
whose lands it shall pass; and thus damage shall be paid by the said Nathaniel Manning.

three miles below Pipe-creek, in Frederick county.  This road is to be laid off by three commissioners,

named in the act, as a public waggon road, twenty feet wide.  It is not, without the consent of the
owner, to run through any orchard, meadow or garden, and whatever the commissioners shall determine
to be the damage occasioned by it, shall be paid to the persons concerned by the said John Groff.

                                            CHAP. VII.
