Your Lordship has now before you the whole train of occurrences
by which the sort of regard is paid in the "improved" colony
to liberties acknowledged even there (as your Lordship has seen) to be
due by law, is testified: which occurrences are here given, exactly
as they stand reported, by the person of all others the most competent
to report them - the Judge Advocate. They are not articles
picked out from a greater number for this purpose. Those, which
have been stated on this occasion, added to the others in which
an account is given of the several parties which at later periods
with or without permission were fortunate enough to get
away are all that have any bearing on this point.

The Statements given on that former occasion, shaped as they were
then to the purpose of that occasion, present in the aggregate a picture
not altogether irrelevant to the present purpose. The subjoined table
exhibits of one view the whole of the information we have been favoured
with by the Judge Advocate, respecting the number of the convicts of both
descriptions (Expirees or Non expirees) who with or without permission
had taken their departure from the Colony, before he quitted it: to
which is added the account of the unsuccessful attempts.—( )
