    BE it enacted, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That where any
person or persons, under the age of twenty-one years, or being idiot,
lunatic, or non compos mentis, are or shall be possessed of any
lands, tenements, hereditaments or real estate whatsoever, which are, or
shall be and stand, mortgaged for the payment of any sum or sums of
money or tobacco, or for securing the payment of any debt whatsoever,
and the day of payment in such mortgage is elapsed, it shall and may be
lawful for the chancellor, upon the petition of the mortagee or mortgagees,
or any person claiming under the mortgage, after summoning the
infant, and his appearance by guardian, to be appointed by the chancellor
for that purpose, and to answer and defend on the part of such infant,
or after the appearance of such person, being idiot, lunatic, or non compos
mentis, by the trustee or trustees, or committee of such person being
idiot, lunatic, or non compose mentis, to be appointed by the chancellor
on behalf of such person, for the purposes aforesaid, and hearing all parties,
and being well satisfied of the execution of the deed of mortgage,
and that the sum claimed by the person making such application is
justly due, to order and decree a sale of such mortgaged premises,
or such part thereof as may be necessary to discharge the debt or debts
due on such mortgage, or the chancellor may decree a foreclosure of the
whole of such part of the mortgaged premises as may be necessary and
sufficient to discharge, pay and satisfy, the debt or debts due upon and
secured by such mortgage, in such manner as the chancellor shall judge
most proper; but if a part only is foreclosed, and such part shall be
esteemed by the mortgagee, or person praying a foreclosure, insufficient to
pay the money secured by such mortgage, then a sale thereof shall be
made in such manner as the chancellor shall direct, and the money raised
by such sale, or so much thereof as is necessary, shall be applied to discharge
the debt secured by such mortgage; and if money sufficient to pay
the debt secured by the mortgage is not raised by a sale of the part foreclosed
and sold as aforesaid, then the chancellor shall decree a sale of such
other part of the mortgaged premises as will be sufficient for that
purpose.

good and sufficient security approved by the chancellor, to the infant, his
heirs, executors and administrators, in such penalty as the chancellor shall
direct, with condition, that in case the infant, within one year after arrival
to age, shall make appear, to the satisfaction of the chancellor, that there
