BLACK LIST* A list of those Tories who took part with Great Britain In the Revolutionary War and were attainted of -:HIGH TREASON:- Commonly called the -:BLACK LIST:-
-The situation of those who, previous to the 11th February, 1777, adhered to the King of Great Britain.

2-The situation of those who, after that time, took the oath of allegiance,
or joined the British, and have been attainted of high treason.

3-Of those who, after the 11th February, 1777, took the oath of allegiance
to, or joined the British armies, and were NOT attainted of treason.

1.--With respect to those who, previous to Feb. 11th, 1777, made their
election, and adhered to the British, I conceive there can be no doubt,
they became British subjects, and could not afterwards become citizens of
Pennsylvania, but by complying with the forms, etc., prescribed it the Acts
for the naturalization of foreigners. This priciple seems to be settled
by the case of the Commonwealth against Chapman, determined in the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania, in April, 1781.

2.--With regard to those who, after February, 1777, joined the British, and
were attainted of treason, where the attainder has not been reversed or a
pardon procured, they cannot be considered as restored to the rights of
citizenship. The treaty of peace did not operate as a reversal of the
attainder nor as a pardon, but only protects the persons from further
prosecution or punishment.

3.--As to the third class, who, after the 11th. February, 1777, took the
oath of allegiance to the King of Great Britain, or joined the British
armies, and were not attainted, they cannot be considered as expatriated;
though such acts might be deemed overt acts of treason, they must still be
considered as citizens, and entitled to the rights of citizenship. Till
attainder, their rights were not forfeited. The test laws have now no
operation on the question, unless to show the sense of the Legislature
in support of the above principle. By the eleventh section of the Act
of 5th December, 1778, it is enacted that those who had taken the oath
or affirmation of allegiance to the State, and afterwards to the King
of Great Britain, should be incapable of election, etc., until they
should take the oath therein prescribed by the Act of 13th March, 1789,
all the test laws were repealed, and the oath of allegiance, etc.,
rendered unnecessary. So that those who took an oath of allegiance
to the King of Great Britain, joined his banner, or committed any
other treasonable act, are not disfranchised unless attainted.
