Showing my ignorance here (never studied Latin but now wish I had),  
but addendum is a supplement in general terms so could it mean a a  
supplemental writ to explain something or words to that effect?

Mary, not even Bouvier’s Law Dictionary has this one!  However, a  
“capias” was a “writ.” Bouvier (his 1856 edition is online athttp://www.constitution.org/bouv/bouvier_c.htm) 
  explains a half-dozen different types of capias/writs but not this  
one.

Ad, of course, means “to”; but expono has several meanings that  
essentially boil down to “put forth” or “explain.”

I found this term in a court record and its definition was not in my  
7th edition of Black's Law Dictionary.  Capias means "that you take,"  
but what does the rest mean?
