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̀̀without Delay,'') is a common Right,'' so indispensably due to all innocent Persons, that it cannot be set aside, or withdrawn from any that are so, (who demand it,) without fundamentally subverting the political Constitution, or legal Establishment of these Kingdoms, and thereby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!
