1769.                         19  FREDERICK Lord BALTIMORE.

                                            CHAP. IV.
An ACT continuing an act, entitled, An act to oblige infected ships and other
              vessels coming into this province to perform quarantine.

                                            CHAP. V.
An ACT continuing an act, entitled, An act to increase the allowance of jurors
    attending the provincial and county courts, and for other purposes therein mentioned.
                                            CHAP. VI.
An ACT continuing an act, entitled, A supplementary act to the act, entitled, An
    act for ascertaining what damages shall be allowed upon protested bills of exchange.
                                            CHAP. VII.
An ACT continuing an act, entitled, An act for amending the staple of tobacco,
    for preventing frauds in his majesty's customs, and for the limitation of officers
    fees, and the supplementary act thereto.
                                            CHAP. VIII.
An ACT for applying a sum of money, in bills of credit, to the use therein
                                          mentioned.  PR.
                                            CHAP. IX.
An ACT to secure to Thomas Smyth, the right in a lot of land in Chester-town.
                                            CHAP. X.
An ACT for appointing places for holding the next election of delegates for Baltimore

    Viz. at Baltimore-town for four successive days (if necessary); and after an interval of one day, for
four days (if necessary) at Bush-town.  The sheriff is first to make proclamation, and, in the usual manner,
to give not less than ten days public notice of the days and places.  The election, however, is not to
be held longer than four days at either place.  Baltimore county having been divided since the passage of
this act, and the constitution giving directions as to elections in all counties, this act is not in force.

                                            CHAP. XI.
        An ACT for the relief of Mary Hindman, of Talbot county.  PR.
                                            CHAP. XII.
An ACT to enable the justices of Queen-Anne's county court, for the time being,

    a quantity of tobacco for building a chapel in the said parish.

    The justices are directed to meet, between the 20th of December and 12th of January following, to
assess on this parish 30,000lb. of tobacco; and in November 1770, they are to assess 30,000lb. more;
the whole, as well as the money and tobacco already in their hands, is to be applied, by the vestrymen
and wardens, to building, at the place where the old chapel stands, a new chapel, which is to bear the
name of St. Andrew.

                                            CHAP. XIII.
A Supplementary ACT to the act, entitled, An act for laying out a-new, and settling
    and ascertaining the future bounds and limits of, St. Luke's. Christ Church,
    and St. John's parishes, in Queen-Anne's county, and of St. Paul's parish, lying
    partly in Queen-Anne's and partly in Talbot county.

    This act is repealed by the act of September, 1770, ch. 9, and as nothing was done under it, and as
the repealing act has, in its stead, made provisions, there is no necessity for reciting the substance of it.

cases relative to their trust.  For their services they are to be allowed each, clear of the necessary expenses
of their office, 400 dollars for the first year, and 320 for every year after.  They are to attend at
their offices on stated days and hours, and to be assisted by a clerk of their own appointment, who is to
take the same oaths, to give bond for his fidelity, and to be allowed for his services 300 dollars the first
