Oratrix until coerced by a court of law or equity. Your Honor will see that the said Critcher has no legal right to collect any of the Bonds due, or to fall due, and your Oratrix cannot do so by reason or his withholding them from her possession. And it may and probably will turn out, that some of the obligors of said Bonds may become insolvent and if not insolvent refuse to pay the interest on said Bonds under the plea, that there is no person properly authorised to receive the amts: Your Oratrix therefore most earnestly prays your Honor to grant the Commonwealth's subpoena of injunction, requiring the said John Critcher forthwith, to deliver up to John A Parker her agent (who has at great inconvenience to himself advanced her a large sum of money and is called immediately to raise a still further sum to prevent her property from being sold) The Bonds shewn by his own statement to be in his hands, on the 12th day of March 1850, and the amt paid him, by Hill, since 1st Jany: as per Hill's letter - and not included in said Critcher's statement. These two amounts, as will be seen, are about Three thousand dollars (3000$) and their immediate delivery cannot interfere with the settlement of his previous a/c. Your Oratrix further prays that the said Critcher may be made a defendant hereto, and be required to Settle a fair and Just a/c, before some Commissioner of Your Court, and that he be required to make full answer hereto
