    "Rev. Thomas Bacon, rector of All Saints' parish, in Frederick county, a man of great learning, excellence and intelligence, published his Laws of Maryland, giving the course of legislation in the province from the beginning down to 1764; a work well known, and indispensable to all students of Maryland history" (Scharf). Jonas Green's work in the making of Laws of Maryland is often cited as a high-water mark in early American printing.
