Abstract

Letter dated September 3, 1670 (August 24, 1670 Old Style) from Phineas Pemberton to his father, Ralph Pemberton, regarding a judge that was initially trying to help secure the liberty of Phineas and his fellow prisoners. Despite promising this, he regarded it above his head. However, he asked justices of the peace Moseley and Kenyon for the liberty of the prisoners until the next quarter sessions of court. The request was refused.
