Lowestoft County Court Friday April 23rd
A. Adams v R. Baxter.  The plaintiff is a wholesale grocer residing in Lowestoft, and defendant a shop keeper residing at Wangford.  The claim was for 3£ 9s 5d.
Mrs Baxter asked his honour what the Plaintiff had brought her to court for, as the transaction was quite out of the district.
Plaintiff said part of the goods were supplied at Lowestoft and part of Wangford.
It appearing to his Honour that from payments made the amount claimed as a balance would be for goods ordered at Wangford, his Honour said the order of this court was that the case be struck out for want of jurisdiction, and plaintiff would have to go to Halesworth, which he said he should do directly.
Mrs Baxter asked his Honour for her expenses which plaintiff hoped, as he had had considerable trouble with Mrs Baxter, his Honour would be favourable in.
His Honour reminded Mrs Baxter that when the case was heard in Halesworth she would have to pay plaintiffs expenses of going there.
Plaintiff intimated that his time was precious.
His Honour made an order for 5s, for expenses, which plaintiff said he was quite content with, as he should get it back again.

* From the information I have, it would seem unlikely that Alfred Baxter was Alfred William's father. He was born while Alfred's first wife was still alive. In 1884 Margaret and Alfred William were repeatedly admitted and discharged from the Gordon Road workhouse, Camberwell. In the 1911 census Margaret suggests that she got married in 1885. Alfred William Draes died in 1885 age 2.
