The groans of the oppressed; or, reasons for reviving, extending and perpetuating the late law for preventing frivolous and vexatious arrests, &c. For limitting the Jurisdiction of the Marshal's-Court, and for Establishing a General Court of Conscience, all over the Kingdom, as in the City of London; with some Remarks on the ungenerous Motives that are suggested to have induced certain Great Men to Wink at the Expiration of that Salutary and Necessary Law. In a letter to a very young Member of the present Parliament.
An address to the people of England: being the protest of a private person Against every Suspension of Law that is liable to injure or endanger personal Security. Wherein is shewn That the Claim of personal Protection and Relief from unjust Imprisonment, ̀̀by due Process of the Law,'' (and that ̀̀without Delay,'') is a common Right,'' so indispensably due to all innocent Persons, that it cannot be set aside, or withdrawn from any that are so, (who demand it,) without fundamentally subverting the political Constitution, or legal Establishment of these Kingdoms, and thereby rendering the Advisers and Promoters of such a Measure guilty of High-Treason!
