    One of the first acts of the new Common Council was to adopt the following, June 15th. '.'Resolved, to send for the Court at Harlem, and the constable, Resolved Waldron, by letter, to come hither by Saturday next." What was brewing was hardly hinted at in the polite billet thereupon addressed: "To the Honorable, the Court of New Harlem." It ran in these words"
    Honorable and Affectionate Friends:
    Thse serve only that your Honors hold yourselves ready to appear here in this city, on Saturday next, being 17th June, old style, with Resolved Waldron, and to receive all such orders as shall be communicated. Whereunto confiding, we commend your Honors, after cordial salutation, unto God's protection, and remain Your affectionate friends,
    The Mayor, Aldermen and Sherrif of the City op New York.
    By order of the same, Johannes Nevius, Secretary.
    Done, N. York, the 15th June, 1665.

    Punctually those sent for appeared, and the record reads thus : "Resolved Waldron entering is notified that he is elected Constable of New Harlem, which accepting, he hath taken the proper oath ; and the Magistrates who accompanied him are informed that they are discharged from their office. The aforesaid Constable is authorized to select three or four persons, who shall have power to decide any differences or dispute to the extent of Five Pounds Sterling, in Sewant, and no higher ; and the party who shall not be satisfied with the decision of those elected as aforesaid, shall be bound to pay him, the Constable, the sum of Six Stivers, and further to bear the costs of proceeding before this bench of Justice."
