Town, and the Court-house of the said County should be
built there, And no other Provision being made for building
the said Court-house than what was contained in the said
Act, which is not now in Force; and the Commissioners of
the said County having proceeded towards building of the

Enacted, (2.) That Baltimore County Court shall be from
henceforth held at the said House, now built at the said Town
of Joppa, and not elsewhere: And that the same House be,
to all Intents, Constructions and Purposes, adjudged, used,
reputed and taken, as the proper Court-house of Baltimore
County. And (3.) That all those Lots of Land laid out by
virtue of the said Act, for Towns, for the Public Use, shall
be, and is hereby declared to be and remain, to and for the
same Uses and Intents the same was at first laid out for.
