will be prepared preffered
In consequence of the strong opinion you
yesterday expressed in the case of Partridge as
to the attorney general's intentions regarding
all the known cases excepting those you gave
me the draft Indictments against and which
have been proceeded upon I wish to know
distinctly from the Crown what course they
mean to adopt in the cases before referred to
that I may act accordingly for should the
Crown decide to prosecute further I feel
it my duty to state that I am directed by
the Magistrates to present to the Grand Jury
the charges capable of being proved against
the Prisoners before named in order to their
being dealt as they may deem proper -
I have been directed to prefer a Bill against
Samuel Etheridge No 19 which I have
done. But beg you to inform me as early
as possible what course I am to pursue as
regards the Crown
And I remain
My Dear Sir
Yours faithfully Wm T.H.Phelps
