Preamble.     WHEREAS, by the act to enable the several and respective county clerks
within this province, to remove some of the county records and papers
from the public offices, a liberty is given to the said clerks, to
remove and take out their four last courts dockets and papers, next preceding the
time of such taking out, and the same to keep in their own houses for their convenience;
under which liberty it is found, that some of the said clerks, who live
a considerable distance from their public offices, omit to bring with them the said
dockets and papers on office days, by which means many people, who go to the
said offices to get bills of cost or issue executions, are disappointed in having their
business done;
Clerks, upon 
every office
day, to bring
the four last
dockets, &c.
    II.  Be it therefore 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 every county clerk in this province
shall bring with him, upon every office day on which he is obliged by law to attend
at the county court-house of his respective county, the four last courts dockets
and papers next preceding every such day of attendance, under the penalty
or forfeiture of thirty shillings current money to the party grieved, for every neglect
or omission thereof, to be recovered before one justice of the peace, with
costs.
                                            CHAP. XI.
An ACT to remedy a defect in the title of Bartholomew Pomeroy, of London,
    merchant, to a tract or parcel of land called Rencher's Adventure, lying in
    Prince-George's county.  PR.
                                            CHAP. XII.
    An ACT to unite the free-schools of Somerset and Worcester counties.

    Ten visitors are appointed in each county, and the whole are to form one body, which is to be upon
the same footing with the visitors of county schools, and any vacancy that may happen is to be filled up
with a resident of the respective county.  The said visitors, or a major part of them, are empowered to
sell, at public vendue, all the lands belonging to each school, and to receive and recover all monies subscribed
to each school, and all monies in the hands of the former visitors, and the whole is to be applied to
the use of one school, which is to be erected, at their discretion, in the place most convenient for each
county.
    The public treasurers are directed, henceforth to pay them two equal dividends of all duties and impositions
to be collected for the use of county schools, which dividends they shall apply as aforesaid.

                                            CHAP. XIII.
An ACT to enable the justices of Dorchester county court, to assess and levy, on
    the taxable inhabitants of the said county, a quantity of tobacco, for the purpose
    of building a court-house.

    The quantity of 200,000lb. of tobacco is to be assessed at three annual assessments, beginning in November
next.  It is to be paid to Charles Dickinson, Robert Goldsborough, William Ennalls, Robert Harrison,
and John Goldsborough, jun. or to the major part of them, who are to meet at Cambridge by
the 15th of March next, and to contract with undertakers, or with workmen, for the building a new
court-house.
    So soon as this court-house shall be completed, the clerk is to remove, to a convenient apartment
therein to be provided for the purpose, all the books, rolls, papers and records, a list of which, at the direction
of the justices, he is to make out, sign, and enter upon record amongst the proceedings of the
court.
    The justices are then to sell, at public vendue, for ready money, all the materials of the old court-house;
and the money arising from the sale, with the surplus of the aforesaid levy, is to be applied to the
use of the county.
