To the Honourable Charles Read, Efq-, of Burlington.
SIR, Brunfwick, 'July ii, 1766.

' T T? 7 HEN the Juftices and Freeholders of the County of Salem fhall think pro-
y y per to apply to me, and fequeft me to petition the Governor for a Com-
' milFion of Oyer and Terminer, for the Trial ' of Criminals in their County, I will
' very readily do it ; but till this is done, I do not think I am authorifed to afk for
' fuch a Commiflion.

' I fhall be obliged to you, if you have any Opportunity to acquaint the Juftices

* and Freeholders of the County of cW«», that it is my Refolution, atprefent, not to
' come into that diftant County, in this hot Seafon of the Year, unlefs, they engage

* to bear my Expences from Amhoy to SaJem, and back again, at the Rate of twenty
"• Shillings per Day. 'Ten Pounds allowed by the Province, is little enough for the
' Fatigue of fitting in a crowded Court-Houfe to attend a Trial.

' / afn, -Mth great RefpeH, SIR,

' 2''our very obedient bumble Servant,

Fre. Smyth."

To Cortland Skinner, Efq; Speaker of the Houfe of Reprefentatives of New-Jerfey.
"■SIR, ■ Burlington, June 19, 1767..

^ T3 Y a Paper left at my Lodgings laft Night by Order of the Houfe of AfTembly,

jf) I find Complaint hath been made againft me in the Houfe, for refufing to
' hold a Court of Oyer and Terminer and General Goal Delivery for the County of
' Salem, unlefs the Juftices and Freeholders of the faid County would agree to pay
' me Twenty Shillings, per Diem, from the Day I fliould let out, till my Return, over
' and above the Sum allowed by Law.

' In Anfwer to this Charge, I muft beg the Favour of you, to acquaint the Houfe
' of AfTembly, that during my Refidence in this Province, once in every Year, a

* Court of Oyer and Terminer has been held by me in the County of Salem; that the

* laft Court was held about a Month fince^ that I have never received One Farthing
' above the Ten Pounds allowed by Law, for holding thofe Courts, notwithftanding
' from the Length of the Journey, I liave neceflarily been obliged to expend much

* more than that Sum.

' Be pleafed alfo, Sir, to acquaint the Houfe, that it is not ufual to hold more than
' one Court of Oyer and Terminer, in a Year, in the County of Salem, unlefs the
< Magiftrates petition the Juftices of the Supreme Court, to requeft the Governor to
' iflue a fpecial Commiflion. No fuch Petition has ever been prefented to me, from

* the Magiftrates of Salem; and therefore I have not yet had an Opportunity to refufe

* fuch a Requeft, nor can any Difappointment on this Occafion be imputed to me.

' If any mention has been made by me of Twenty SMllings per Day, for travelling
' Charges, to attend a Special Court at Salem, it was written in a Letter to a Friend n
' a private Correfpondence ; but never demanded by me ; nor fhould I have allowed

* myfelf to infift on it, if the Magiftrates had legally applied to me for a CommifTiun
' of Oyer and Terminer : But in the. mean Time, I fubmit to the Confideration of the
' Houfe of AfTembly, if it can be rcafonablc to expeft or require me, to perform a

* Journey, with Servants and Horfes, upwards of an Hundred and Sixty Miles,

* (which I believe is lefs than the Diftance from my Houfe at Amboy to Salem^
' and home again) for the Sum of Teii Pounds.

' Therefore, Sir, as I find the Word Grievance in the Paper from the Houfe, and

* a Committee of Grievances, &c. If there is any true Caufe of Complaint at this

* Time, or any real Grievance exifting, I hope the Houfe will difcover where it ought
' to be fixed, and how redrefTed. I hope the Houfe will no longer think it reafonable,

' that-



( 15 )



' that I fnould be called rVom one End of the Province to the other, at an Expence

* three Times above what is allowed by Law, to hold a Court whenever a Thief fhall
' be apprehended, merely becaufe the Gaols in the Counties are not kept in fufficient

* Repair to hold Prifoners •, which I obferve is the ufual Reafons given for requefting a
' fpecial Court.

' As I have ever been attentive to difcharge the Duty of my Station, with the
' ftrifteft Uprightnefs, Punftuality and Zeal, for the Good of this Province, I hope
' the Reprefentatives of New-Jerfey, will have more Candour, than to admit of
' Cenfure, Murmuring or Refieftions, to be heard in their Houfe, to my Difhonour,
' till they fhall appear to be juftly due and well founded.

' I am, with all due Refpeci to the Houfe, and Regard for you, SIR,

' 2~our very obedient hurable Servant,

Fre. Smyth."
' P. S. If it will afford Satisfadlion to any of the Members of the Houfe, I will,
' with great Pleafure, confer with them on the Subject of the Paper left with me lafi
' Night, whenever they fhall be pleafcd to call upon me."
