Excerpt from An Appendix to the Case and Vindication of Mr. Hewling Luson, Published on the 4th of June 1803: Containing Sundry Documents and Extracts Relative to His Petition to the Honourable House of Commons, Presented 9th of May, 1811, and Ordered to Lie on the Table of That Honourable House
The further Operation of such manifest injustice Mr. Luson trusts the humanity and equity of that august Tribunal, to which he humbly appeals, will effectually prevent. The precedents of Bryant and Terry, already adduced, to which various others might be added, fully prove not only that a subsequent Board of Admiralty may reinstate, or superannuate, but that it actually has exercised these powers with respect to those whom a former Board had dismissed and given them their arrears of superannuation, from the date of their dis missal, after several years had elapsed.
