1866: A Law Suit Against Substitute Brokers

The Superior Court sitting in Middletown, had on trial on Monday and Tuesday of this week, a suit brought by Hon. Samuel L. Warner, Congressman from this district, and others, against Samuel Bishop, Wm. E. Baldwin and Charles G. Wilson, of this city. It seems that the defendants, during the war, made a contract to furnish substitutes for the town of Middletown. It is claimed that when the price of substitutes rose, the defendants refused to fulfill their contract, but furnished substitutes after that for other parties. The case is not yet decided.

From the Columbian Register (New Haven, Connecticut), Saturday, November 10, 1866.
