have liberty to sue out their grants for their lands, the rights
being good, though the certificate be of never so long

time to come, all instructions that his lordship shall please
to transmit to the governor or other officers, about land, may
be published, and recorded in the respective county courts,
within six months after the said instructions shall come to the
hands of the said governor or other officers.
