     Phebe Smith, Staten Island, requests the Editor to publish two affidavits annexed to her letter. Her husband Job Smith was extradicted to New Jersey at the request of Governor Livingston and lodged in the Essex County gaol on 10 May 1784, then being charged with murdering Stephen Ball, late of Elizabeth Town, on Bergen Point in Bergen County, and also with robbing Joseph Baldwin and Zophar Lyon. After a strict investigation, his former prosecutors have found that Job Smith is innocent of the charge. David Ball certifies that while he heretofore had reason to believe that Mr. Job Smith was instrumental in the death of his son who was executed and murdered in 1781, he now believes him to be innocent. Zophar Lyon, Joseph Baldwin and Luther Baldwin, in the presence of John Hendricks Jr. and Baker Hendricks, certify that having fully investigated the charge against Job Smith for having robbed Zopher Lyon and Joseph Baldwin about Oct 1781, they believe him to be innocent.1
