1841 District of Columbia Legal Manuscript re: a Converted Double Barreled Fowling Gun.
“...hath unlawfully converted…”
An odd case, Thomas Turner vs. John Peabody, where the latter man accuses the former of “unlawfully converted for his own use three certain double barreled fowling pieces…” The specifics of this dispute remain unknown to us. Here Peabody attests to Turner’s dastardly deeds by making “oath on the Holy Evangelists and Almighty God” before Morsell, District of Columbia justice of the peace.
