  Subject: [APG Public List] Illegible word assistance requested

  I'm trying to transcribe a judge's notes pertaining to witness testimony 
  an assault case and keep coming across a word I can't make sense of. It
  clearly refers to a weapon with which the victim was struck. It looks like
  "steve" or "stem" or "stew". Do any of these words refer to something that
  could be a weapon? In case it's relevant, the event took place in 1835 in
  Toronto, Canada.

  Thanks in advance for your comments,
