Abstract
The deponent, 35 years old, having no land, disinterested in the outcome of the controversy, says that persons named in Exhibit 48 are freeholders or householders of Hardy township. They live north of the line made by Clinton and Dennis, and pay taxes to New Jersey. The deponent has heard of Clinton's Old Line. He is also acquainted with the southern part of Warwick Town, and knows that it is dispu ted land. As far as he knows, the people of Warwick hold their lands by possession, without a title from either New York or New Jersey. The reason many inhabitants pay taxes to New York is that they were compelled to do so. John Westbrook, a tavern owner who lives about a mile and a half northward of Coles Fort, has a liquor license from New Jersey. Signed by Samuel Whitehead. In Jay's hand.
