What is a "court" ?
Well this isn't exactly creole related but I thought someone here might be able to assist me in understanding this newspaper extract. Apparently New Orleans had a french language daily newspaper in 1913. I must admit that surprised me. I found an article on a family (Edinburgh) I have been researching recently and I'd like to get some clarification as to the meaning of the following extract. I translated this extract with the Google Language Tool since it was so short. Rev. Silas Edinburgh is buying 2 courts. What is a court? Is it just an empty lot or what ?
