An Act for Disabling Thomas Macnamara Esq; to Practice the Law
within this Province.

Whereas Thomas Macnamara, Esq; a late Practitioner of the
Law and Attorney in several of the Courts within this Province,
has been sundry times Suspended here and in the Province of Penn-
silvania, for his Misdeeds, and Re-admitted to his Practice on his
fair Promises of Amendment. And whereas by An Act of Assem-
