A Supplement lo an Act, entitled, An Act to incorporate a Com-
pany to make a Turnpike Road from near Ellicott's Lower Mills to-
wards George-Town, in the District of Columbia.
WHEREAS it hath been represented to this general assembly, by the petition of a number of
the commissioners appointed to receive subscriptions for making a turnpike road from near
Ellicott's lower mills towards George-town, that they opened subscription books, but that a suffi-
cient number of shares could not be obtained to authorise the organization of the company, owing
to a restriction in the law, that the said road was to be located so as to cross Hock Creek, at not
less than three miles above George-town; and that difficulties have also arisen on account of the
large number of shares limitted to be subscribed before the law could legally go into operation; and
therefore they prayed that a supplement to the said law might pass authorising the president and
managers, that may be appointed, to locate the said road on such direction as may be found most con-
venient, without paying any regard to the restriction before mentioned, which appearing reasonable,
II. BE IT ENACTED, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That it shall and may be lawful for the
president and managers who may hereafter be chosen in conformity to the act to which this is a sup-
plement, and they are hereby authorised, to locate the said road from near Ellicott's lower mills to
the line of the district of Columbia, on a direction towards George-town, in such manner as they
may apprehend most beneficial to the public, without having any regard to the restriction contained
in the said law to cross Rock Creek not less than three miles above George-town, and the commis-
sioners named in the said law, or a majority of them, are hereby authorised to open subscription
books at such times and places as they may think proper, and to receive subscriptions in addition to
those already subscribed, and when five hundred shares of the said stock shall be subscribed, to call
a meeting of the subscribers in order to organize the company agreeably to the act to which this is
a supplement, any thing in the said act to the contrary notwithstanding.
