The papers begin in 1681 with the appeal of Capt. Palmer from a decision of the Mayor's Court and conclude with a suit brought on Sept. 24, 1819 by one Leggett. Large quantities of returns of writs of inquiry, especially during 1770-1775, are present as well as numerous legal opinions by government officials.
