    of MARYLAND, begun and held at the city of
    ANNAPOLIS, on Monday the seventh of November,

    and ended the thirtieth day of December, in the year of
    our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety-one,

    the following LAWS were enacted:

                    GEORGE PLATER, Esq; Governor.

                                            CHAP. I.
An ACT to continue certain causes in the high court of appeals.

Passed December
    WHEREAS there are two causes now depending in the high court of
appeals, the one between Benedict Calvert's lessee, and Robert Eden,
and others, the other between Simon Wicks and Mary his wife,
and John Sutton, and others, which cannot be continued by the said court without
an act of assembly for that purpose:  And whereas it appears to this general
assembly, that from the attendance of one of the counsel concerned in the said
causes, as a member of the house of delegates, the removal of two others to the
judiciary department, and the indisposition of a fourth, a hearing of the said
causes could not be had with justice to the parties, who are therefore desirous of
continuing the same.
    II.  Be it enacted, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That the said two
actions shall be continued, and they are hereby continued to the next court of
appeals, any thing in any law to the contrary notwithstanding.
Actions continued.
                                            CHAP. II.
An ACT to settle and ascertain the salary of members of the 
                                council for the ensuing year.

Passed December
    BE it enacted, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That each member
of the council shall be entitled to receive, for the ensuing year, the sum
of one hundred and fifty pounds current money for his salary.
Salary ascertained.
                                            CHAP. III.
An ACT to lay a further tax on Cæcil county to complete the
            court-house, prison and prison-yard, at Elkton.
Passed December
    WHEREAS it has been represented to this general assembly, by the
commissioners appointed under an act, entitled, An act for the
removal of the seat of justice from Charles-town to the Head of
Elk, in Cæcil county, that the further sum of seven hundred pounds will be
necessary to complete the said buildings; which sum the said commissioners, and
other inhabitants, have prayed may be levied, in two annual payments, on the
inhabitants of Cæcil county.
    II.  Be it enacted, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That the justices of
Cæcil county be and they are hereby empowered and directed to levy and assess,
at their next levy court, the sum of seven hundred pounds on the assessable property
in said county, together with the collector's commissions for collecting the
same; which said sum, so to be assessed and levied, shall be collected by the
collector of said county, one half in the year seventeen hundred and ninety-three, in the same
manner as the public and county assessments are by law collected, and the same,
as soon as collected, shall, by the said collector, be paid to the said commissioners,
or their order, for the purpose of completing the said public buildings.
