5. As the remarks of Otis and Gridley, notes
, below, indicate, the work referred to here is William Brown's Compendium of the Several Branches of Practice in the Court of Exchequer at Westminster
(London, various edns., 1688–1725). The writ in question, found at p. 358–361 in the 1688 edition, is set out in full in Quincy, Reports (Appendix)
398–399. See an extract, note
below. See also notes 12
below. A work entitled The Modern Practice of the Court of Exchequer
(London, 1731) contains nothing even resembling a writ of assistance.
