T[homas] H[ill] Hubbard to MVB, 6 June 1818


On my arrival at court I found that causes of the People vs Pitts and others were not on the calendar, I put them on, but by agreement with the Opposing Consul was not ^to^ hand up the N. pr. Records, until I could see Mr. Clorry the Agent mentioned in your letter. 

Mr. Avery did not appear nor any Witness on the part of the People. I made every inquiry concerning the cases, but could get no information from any quarter except that Mr. Avery had moved to Oneida County, and it was generally believed he had taken no measures to procure testimony & that he would not appear. If he had been in this County I should have sent a subpoena for him, I made [out] one, supposing he resided in the North part of the County, but on learning that he was so far off I did not send for him, for want of time. 

I left court last evening, and put the N.P. Records in the hands of Mr. Stebbins with directions to try the Cause if Avery appeared. The Judge however had but one cause to try and I presume the Court was adjourned in an hour after I came away. The Records will be returned to to me today. Shall I send them to you by mail, or wait for a convenient private Opportunity.

I have the honor to be with great Respect

Your Most Obedt Servt.

T.H. Hubbard
