On the Eighteenth Instant by Virtue of a Warrant Issued by two Justices of Warren County Directed to me, I Imprest a bay horse, the property of Nat. Henderson; he said he would loose his life before he would loose his horse. I told him that I would not Contend with him as far as that, but that if he chose to take his horse by Violence he might do so. He immediately pulled the bridle away, and said that he would answer for his Conduct to any Quarter or the Governor & Council.
