Copy of proceedings at a Court of Sessions, Midletowne, County of Monmouth, March 25, 1701. Mosses Butterworth, who was accused of piracy and had confessed that he did sail with Capt. Kid in his last voyage, being examined, one Saml. Willet, Inholder, said that the Government and Justices had no authority to hold Court, and that he would break it up, and went downstairs to a company of men then in armes, and sent up a Drummer, one Thomas Johnson, into Court, who beat upon his drum, and several of the Company came up with their arms and clubs, which together with the drum-beating continually made such a noise (notwithstanding continual open proclamations made to be silent and keep the King's peace) that the Court could not examine the Prisoner, and when there was betwixt 30 and 40 men come up into the Court, some with their arms and some with clubs, Benjamin and Richard Borden attempted to rescue the prisoner. The Constable and Under-sherrif apprehended them, whereupon they were assaulted (the Drum still beating and the people thronging upstairs with their arms) and the Bordens rescued.
