Vanstophorst et al.  v.  the State of Maryland

 Argued: . . . --- Decided: August 3, 1791

The Attorney General (Randolph) moved, on behalf of the plaintiffs, that a commission should issue to examine witnesses in Holland; to which the opposite counsel assented, although the commissioners were not named.

But, by the Court:—We will not award the commission, ’till commissioners are named.

This being done, the motion was granted.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
