On November 13, 1778, Charles Carroll, Sr. petitioned the Maryland legislature to repeal "An Act to make the bills of
credit issued by Congress, and the bills of credit omitted by acts of Assembly, and resolves of the late conventions, a legal
tender in all cases." The legislature refused to repeal the act stating that it was necessary to the American cause and public
credit to enforce it The address to the reader is a discussion of the resolution of the House point by point attempting to
show that the bill is injurious and unfair to creditors.

The dispute between Lemmon and Martin started when "Mr. Martin detained, or smuggled away, a letter confidentially
entrusted to hun by Mr. Lemmon (written by S. C. to J. D. and supposed to be criminal in its nature) who, it appears,
obtained if from a person that picked it up in the street, by the awfulness of his magisterial power, and with an apparent
design, on the part of the magistrate, to prosecute the writer." Cineas regrets that neither of the disputants went into detail
as to why the letter was criminal in nature.

In the preface to the public, General Smallwood gives as his reason for having this book published the gross misrepre-
sentation of his conduct toward the prosecution of Colonel J. C. Hall who had withdrawn from his regiment and neglected
his duties for nearly six months because he did not choose to act under the commands of his superior officer. Captain Edward
Norwood of the fourth Maryland regiment was court-martialed because he refused to obey the order of a superior officer
and after the verdict was reached was court-martialed again because he publicly stated that he had no regard for the censure
of the commander in chief, the court martial and his superior officer. The courts-martial came to a verdict again but it was
disapproved of by Washington who ordered a retrial and the final verdict was that Norwood be discharged from the service.
The object of this book was to justify the position of Smallwood in the affair. The preface is dated Sept. 10, 1770.
Evans, 16334.
