Lord Carbery against Weston & al.

A Petition of Edward Weston Esquire and others, Respondents in a Cause depending in this House, wherein George Lord Carbery of the Kingdom of Ireland is Appellant, which stands appointed for Hearing on a distant Day, was presented, and read; setting forth, "That, before the Decree appealed from was obtained by the Petitioners, the Appellant put in Practice every Method that could be devised, to retard the Hearing of the Cause in the Court below, and throughout the Progress thereof hath given the Petitioners all possible Delay; and, since the final Decree, which was made in February 1756, hath stood out Processes of Contempt to Sequestration, before he thought proper to lodge his Appeal; that these Delays are in a very particular Manner distressful, and may be attended with fatal Consequences to the Petitioners; for, if the Appellant should happen to die, pending this Suit, they will, by his Death, lose a great Debt due to them, as they have no Security for it but the Decree, the Estate conveyed by the Appellant as a Security having been previously encumbered by him to Three Times its Value;" and therefore praying, under these Circumstances, "That their Lordships would be pleased to appoint a short Day for hearing the said Cause."
