But are the Proceedings of the Old Bailey searchable in full text? The interface appeared to be searchable only by field or keyword. In any case, the Old Bailey cases were criminal cases, and "deliberate speed" seems to be more of a chancery concept.
I haven't heard of any plans to put chancery records online, although historians would probably find them at least as useful as the criminal records.

WITH ALL DELIBERATE SPEED (continued)
It's curious that the legal phrase does NOT appear in Proceedings of the Old Bailey (online, up to 1799).
