Silas Griffith.

No. 9.
The committee to whom was referred the petition of Silas Griffith of Dor-
Chester county, have considered the same and report:—That the petitioner
states that a certain William Gist of the county aforesaid is a debtor to the state
of Maryland on judgment for the purchase money of certain Choptank Indian
lands in Dorchester county, that the petitioner purchased said lands of the said
Gist, being unacquainted with the situation of said lands, or that the state had
any claim upon them; the petitioner further states that the state's agent is about
to issue execution against said lands, which will Injure him very much as he is
unprepared to pay the debt in consequence of the circumstances of the contract;
the committee, therefore viewing the circumstances of the case as sufficient to
entitle the petitioner to the commisseration of the state, recommend the adoption
of the following resolution:
Resolved, That all proceedings on the said judgment shall be suspended until
the first Monday of July eighteen hundred and twenty-five; Provided, that the
defendants to said judgment pay in the manner following: that is to say, the one
third part of the principle and all the interest and costs due thereon on or before
the first Monday of July next, the like sum of principal and all the interest due
on the remainder of the principal on the first Monday of January, eighteen hun-
dred and twenty-five, and the remaining part of the principal and whatever in-
terest is due on the first Monday of July, eighteen hundred and twenty-five, and
it either of the parties shall neglect to pay the proportion or installments so as
directed to be paid by them, then execution shall and may forthwith be issued
on the judgment or judgments against the party or parties neglecting to pay as
aforesaid in the same manner as if this resolution had not passed; Provided also
that nothing in this resolution contained shall prevent the state from recover-
ing any part of the said debt from any of the said parties if either of the defen-
dants shall become unable or neglect to pay the part or installments so as afore-
said ordered to be paid by them respectively.
