Provincial Case File No. 26274, New Hampshire State Archives, Judgment Book of Superior Court, Vol. G, at 83 - Judgment of William Licht
Article 1, footnote 81
Chapter 2, footnote 16
To the extent that one can retrospectively impose order on the cases ... one key variable may have been whether the would-be appellant was still in prison. At any rate, when William Licht was summarily incarcerated by a J.P. (and then released on bail) in 1770 on the complaint of two townspeople of Chester, New Hampshire for harboring a potentially indigent stranger, he pursued his appeal, successfully, by bringing certiorari proceedings.
