The following Depositions were returned to this Board by
the Justices of Calvert County

Calvert County ss

Ellis Slater Deputy Clerk of the County afd answers to the
several Questions upon Oath as follows

Quest. 1st Hath it been the Custom of the Justices of your
County to order their Clerk or his Deputy to make Returns
on Writts of Certiorari
Ansr It has been the Practice for the Clerk to make all
2d Did they order you to make Return on that produced
by Samuel Harrison a Wardrop & Graham last June Court
and what Return did they order thereon
Answer. They did order me to make Return on that Writt,
that because the said Wardrop and Graham by Thomas Clark
their Attorney had petitioned that a Judgment of Non pross
or discontinuance of the Action by them brought in said Court
against said Harrison with Cost might be entered against
them, that therefore It was their Opinion there was no Action
then existing between the said Parties, and therefore could
not allow of said Writt of Certiorari
3d Why did not you make Return thereon as ordered
Answer. Because Samuel Harrison forbid me, and hindered
me therefrom, by taking the Writ into his Custody, saying
I should not, It was their Business, and if they were such fools
as not to know it, he did, He should take Care of the Writ,
and as this Respondent was told last Provincial Court, there
was no Return thereof.
4th Did not receive you from Mr Edward Dorsey Attorney

P. 362

for Mr Onorio Razolini two declaratory Bills on two protested
Bills of Exchange with Orders to file copy and dockett the
same against Samuel Harrison Clerk of Calvert County Court
in the usual manner the Law directs
Ansr I did and shewed them to Mr Harrison who forbid
me to do the same
5th Did not some of the Justices of the County afd on the
day after the Court house was burnt apply to Mr Harrison to
inspect what Damage the Records had sustained and that He
refused to suffer them so to do
