Excerpt from The Military Law of England, With All the Principal Authorities: Adapted to the General Use of the Army, in Its Various Duties and Relations, and the Practice of Courts Martial
That the act for punishing Mutiny and De sertion, &c. In common with many other acts of parliament, required periodically, should not be adapted to the facility of hasty refe rence, by those occupied in the discussion of its laws; is no impeachment, either of their talents or industry, when it is recollected that even Addison, while secretary of state, could not write a letter on business required in haste.
