Peter Sonmans' Conduct

Our New Jersey settlers did not always lead a quiet life!  Apparently, Peter Sonmans expressed his displeasure with the state of electoral affairs on 1 Nov. 1710 in Middlesex Co., NJ. His words--and actions--caused his hearers to complain all the way to Gov. Robert Hunter.

The above is taken directly from Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the state of New Jersey, Vol. IV: The Administration of Governor Robert Hunter and President Lewis Morris 1709-1720. (Newark, NJ.: Daily Advertiser Printing House, 1882) pp. 15-16.
