[John Nuttle Diary]
The court & attorneys for Pltff [plaintiff] appears very vindictive against Prest. Taylor & the Executors it is not Known what course may be pursued in the event of extreme Measures. Prest. Taylor feels that he will rather go to prison than submit to the base demands made upon him by these persons for in his position he feels himself amensable to the people and to God for his Trusts & not to them.
