52 Assembly Proceedings, June 3-23, 1752.

L. H. J.

Liber No. 47
June 17

fifteen or sixteen Children taught by the said Elston at his School :
That he knows that the said Elston taught at Patapsco in Anne
Arundel County, and heard him say he had kept School at Deer
Creek, in Baltimore County, before that Time.
2dly. That Popish Priests, or Jesuits, take Grants of Lands from
the Lord Proprietary, as well as Deeds from others, in their own
Names; whereon they build and erect public Mass Houses, Planta-
tions, and Edifices, for the public Exercise of their Functions; of
which Mass Houses, Seminaries, or Sects of Jesuits (exclusive of
many Chapels and Mass Houses in private Families), there are six
or more seated, besides Tracts of Land held in their Right, ready to
be so seated for the Purposes aforesaid, and pervert many of his
Majesty's Subjects.
3dly. That many Papists openly send Children to St. Omer's, and
other Popish Seminaries, out of the King's Obedience, there to be
trained up and educated in their Superstitions and dangerous Prin-
ciples; whence many return into this Province Popish Priests, or
Jesuits, propagating their Doctrine without Controul; which if not
timely checked, may become of dangerous Consequence to this Part
of his Majesty's Dominions.
4thly. That a German Priest, or Jesuit, has a Seat of Land, or
Place for exercising the Popish Religion, near the back Mountain,
as appears by a Deposition taken in May Session, 1751, and then
lodged with the Clerk of your Honourable House.

Waring, of Prince George's County, That he has been acquainted
with Mr. Henry Darnall, Attorney General, 14 or 15 Years; and
understood that he was brought up and educated at St. Omer's, and
that he, Mr. Darnall, professed the Popish Religion until the Time
he first began to practice the Law, and of his taking the Oaths to the
Government: That some Years after Mr. Darnall was appointed
Attorney General, and Mr. Waring hearing by many People that
Mass was said in his House after such Appointment, Mr. Waring
often took Occasion to mention it, and particularly to Mr. Baker
Brooke, a Papist, who said it was so; and that he, Mr. Brooke, also
said, he understood by his Lordship's Charter, the Roman Catholics
had Liberty to exercise their Religion any where, and that the Mass

was said for Mr. Darnall's Family, but believed Mr. Darnall himself
was never present: That in September last, Mr. Waring says, he
was in Company with Mr. Ignatius Diggs, a Papist; and, after some
Discourse, he, Diggs, talked of the approaching Election for Repre-
sentatives, to serve in Assembly for Prince George's County, saying
that Messieurs William Murdock and John Addison were not fit to
