Hebron, CT [1787]

One of the more colorful incidents in the story of Cesar and Lowis Peters involves the invoice submitted by Roger Fuller, a Hebron inn-keeper, for refreshments served at his tavern following the safe return of the Peters family. The "refreshments" consist almost entirely of various liquors, and according to town records, Mr. Fuller was not reimbursed.
