IF any person or persons shall think themselves injured or aggrieved by the judgment of any monthly meeting, of which they were a member or members, such person or persons may appeal to the quarterly meeting, to which the said monthly meeting doth belong; provided notice be given of such intended appeal, in three months after such judgment is given; and the appeal must be lodged in such quarterly meeting, within six months after such notice.

If any persons be dissatisfied with the judgment of any quarterly meeting, they may appeal from such judgment to the yearly meeting; the appellants giving notice to the said quarterly meeting of their intentions to appeal, within six months after the judgment of such quarterly meeting is given; and such appeal must be brought to the next quarterly meeting, if it may with convenience, or to the next following.

If any appellant or appellants do not bring his, her or their appeal to the yearly meeting next ensuing, due notice once given, them, if such appellants continue their appeal, notice shall be repeated in writing to the meeting against which


they may appeal, at least three months preceding the yearly meeting. 1745. And when any persons manifest their intention of appealing from the judgment of a monthly or quarterly meeting, that such meeting appoint a suitable number of friends to attend the superior meeting, with a copy of their doings signed by the clerk, there to manifest the reason upon which such judgment was founded: which superior meeting is to take said appeal into consideration and determine thereon, by a committee to be appointed for that purpose. It is concluded, that appeals to the yearly meeting be entered and acted upon on the third day of the Week. 1806. It is the judgment of this meeting, that monthly meetings have a right, in cases of reversal of their judgment against any individual member, on account of irregular dealing only, to take up the case again, and proceed according to discipline; and it is recommended to committees of superior meetings to be careful, when reversals are made on account of irregular dealing only, to express the same in their report. 1807.
