Richardson Baker was taken to court by bricklayer James Lovett, Friday, 8th August 1862. A debt of £2 16s 5d had not been paid by Baker who said Lovett owed £1 14s 10½d for beer and tobacco supplied between 25th December 1860 and 20th February 1862. His Honour ordered that the difference between the two claims be paid immediately ( with costs ) since neither party could prove the other wrong.
