The em - banaJTment upon it requiring the beft counfel, I repeatedly repeatedly propofed to Richard Hopkins and all concern - cd, to apply to the honourable theHhancellor. for his luthority and direction, and I went and waited at Annapolis Annapolis for that purpofe a long time in vain : under thefe circumftances I think it fair to publifh this cauti - tion.
