Writ to "the Justices of the County Court of Common Pleas," commanding prisoners John Crever, William Moore, and John Moore "unto your custody" and to be held and detained "before the Justices of the Supreme Court of the State of Pennsylvania." Signed at the conclusion by McKean as Chief Justice of Pennsylvania, and countersigned by Edward Burd as prothonotary of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Paper seal remains affixed to left side. Suede-matted and framed with an engraved plate and image of McKean to an overall size of 20.5 x 19.75.
