Description
The New York City Court of Aldermen was comprised of aldermen who were allowed to sit as justices for certain types of cases. This manuscript documents the court's decisions between October 25, 1797 and March 23, 1798. It serves as a record of federal period crimes in the City of New York such as theft, prostitution, indentured servitude, and assault and the sentences and fines that were issued in response. Aldermen who presided over the court included Theophilus Beekman, Anthony Post, Jotham Post, Jacob De La Montagnie, Richard Furman, Gabriel Furman, and John B. Coles. A partial index appears in the back of the manuscript.
