           The Delay, which in some Instances has occurred in the Transmission of Depositions, having proved Cause of much Inconvenience in duly preparing and in many Points relating to Charges to be exhibited to this Court; and in Order to afford more full Opportunity of taking the same into Consideration, and of pursuing any such peculiar Measures as the particular Case may seem to suggest and require; the Magistrates generally and respectively are requested to give Directions, that the original Depositions, under the Hand of the committing Magistrate; may be forwarded immediately to the Judge Advocate, in every Cause of Commitment for Trial or Recognizance taken for Appearance before the Court, as it may arise from Time to Time, as soon as may be conveniently allowed, after such Order in either Respect shall have been given.

By Order of the Judge Advocate.

Thomas Wylde, Clerk of the Peace.
