Mr. Parsons held a Justice's Court for the trial of a trifling action of trover and
conversion. The dispute was about 600 feet of pine boards. The witnesses on both sides
were examined and after a trial of two hours; Mr. Parsons advised them to settle the
matter between themselves without any judgment; which they accordingly did. The weather
for a day or two past has been very mild and pleasant; verifying, the vulgar saying,
mentioned at the beginning of the month. I walk'd with Putnam this afternoon and pass'd
the evening with Townsend.
