Before me archibald Gam
ble clerk of the Circuit CourtCircuit Court for said County
personally appeared Enos BurdnoEnos Burdno the plaintiff
in the within declaration I made oath that
Benjamin B. Bonneville the defendant named
in said declaration is justly indebted to him
in the sum of Two hundred & fifty dollars
of a real & unsatified debt being a
part of the same sum and due to him for
the same cause of action in said declara

tion set forth that said BonnevilleBonneville is not
a resident of this State, and does not, so
far as this affiant knows, own or possess
any real or personal Estate therein that
said BonnevilleBonneville is engaged in the fur trade
passing the greater portion of his time in
the Indian County beyond the limits of any
particular State, or territory of the United StatesUnited States
& beyond the reach of civil process & that
this affiant verily believes unless said Bonne

ville is held to bail in a sum sufficient
to secure the payment of said debt together
with costs of suit- he will be in danger
of losing the same.
