Arrest warrant for Sanford Noyes in response to a complaint by James Noyes and Thomas Noyes, who claimed that he owed them 1,700 dollars. The form is typed, but details such as name, crime, and date have been handwritten in. It was witnessed by Edward Wilcox, and signed by someone whose name is difficult to read. On the back of the warrant, a handwritten note from Sanford Noyes acknowledges the warrant and says that he will appear at any time during the August term.
