Letter to Samuel Whitbread from Thomas Schreiber: King's writ does not run in the Islands, but the Kings commission under the great seal. The local court made a law that an Englishman can be arrested for bond or bill, but this was not santioned by the King in Council. Writer intends to appeal on this to the House of Lords. Will ask Allen to draw out his case. Hopes for support. 24 September 1814.
