Court of Appeals in Cases of Capture

2 U.S. 40

Stoddard, Appellant  v.  Read, Appellee, and the Schooner Squirrel and Cargo

 Argued: May Session, 1783 --- Decided: May Session, 1783

On motion of the Apellant’s Counsel, before an appearance filed on behalf of the Appellee, stating that the prize Schooner was in a perishing condition, it was ordered,

By the Court. That the Schooner, her tackle, apparel, and furniture, be sold at public auction, to the highest bidder, for the use of those to whom the same shall be finally decreed.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
