And whereas the House at King's-Town in Talbot County, be-
longing to William Wilson, was by an Act made in May, Seventeen
hundred and forty-eight, directed to be used for storing inspected
Tobacco; and accordingly hath been taken, laid out, and appropri-

Crane; Be it Enacted and Declared, That the Owner of the said
Wilson's House be paid but one third Part of the twelve Pence per
Hogshead, which shall arise due on all the Tobacco delivered out

thority aforesaid, That Pemberton's Houses, and Choptank Bridge
House, be separate; and that the Inspectors at Pemberton's be al-
lowed the annual Salary of forty-five Pounds Current Money, and
no more, to each Inspector; and the Inspectors at Choptank Bridge
House be allowed the Sum of thirty-five Pounds to each Inspector
yearly: And that the respective Vestries of the Parishes wherein
the Houses aforesaid stand, as soon as may be, after the End of

Houses, as by former Laws they are directed.
