"And for want of goods and chattles whereon to make distress, you (the tax collector) are to take the body of the person so refusing, and him or them commit unto the keeper of the goal of said County.... and safely keep him or them until he or they pay and satisfy the said sum." Signed at Hartford, July 23, 1793, by Judge Jon. Bull (Johathan Bull). There are six pages of names (see scans for partial). Condition: soiling, stains, creases- still in VG condition. 4" X 6 3/8". Some of the listings include such taxpayers as Oliver Ellsworth, Amos Bull, and many others.
