United States Supreme Court

15 U.S. 371

The London Packet

IN the argument of this cause, Mr. Winder, for the claimant, stated, that there was an affidavit annexed to the record, which was taken under the order for farther proof, in the court below, but which, not arriving until after the decree of condemnation was pronounced, was ordered by the circuit court, to be transmitted, de bene esse, for the consideration of this court. He farther stated, that he had additional proofs, taken since that time, to be used in this court; and he asked whether he should now be permitted to read these proofs, in order to show what was the nature of the evidence which existed, to clear away any former doubts in the cause.

[Mr. Chief Justice MARSHALL.
