The words "shall Counsel.

What that Act provides is that the bill of and since that time several of the chancery judges have sale, &c., shall be presented to, and the copy and affidavit kept up the custom, and last year not one of them sat on filed with, the registrar“ within seven clear days after that day, except the Master of the Rolls.
