replying to an application made on behalf
of American citizens arrested in Ireland,
says : " The coercion act is contrary
to the spirit and foundation of the principles
of England and American jurisprudence,
but is the law of the land and controls
all persons domiciled in the proclaimed
districts of Ireland, whether British

were redeemable by tenths and
