Petition 10382412

John Price bought three slaves at his mother-in-law's estate sale in Maryland. He seeks exemption from the Delaware law designed to prevent the importation and exportation of slaves and asks permission to bring the slaves from Maryland into Delaware. Price states that the slaves belonged to his wife's family for many years and, if he had "consulted his own interest, he would never have purchased negros of their age and in the state of Maryland too where it is well Known the price of slav[e]s is much greater than it is in Delaware." He further notes that his purchase was prompted by a desire "to prevent them being Transported to a southern Market."

Petition 11081902

Benjamin Farar asks to emancipate Louisa and her daughter, Betsey, as requested by Abram Ellis in his will. "He is aware that it has been deemed inexpedient by some of our best legislators to extend too freely to this unfortunate race of beings the discretionary aid of the Legislature," Farar explained, "at the same time it has almost always been done in cases like the present, when the applicants had performed essential & faithful services to their master, and had uniformly borne an excellent character."

Petition 11085902

Albert W. Dunbar, guardian of the estate of Dr. James P. McPheeters of Adams County, purchased in 1858 for the widow and her eight children a plantation on the Black River in Catahoula Parish, Louisiana. He then transported the slaves belonging to the estate to Louisiana and worked them on the plantation. Dunbar is an experienced planter, the petitioners aver, and this was the best way to use the slaves; prior to the purchase of land, the slaves could not be profitably utilized. The widow and her children explain that because of the minor status of five of the children, the removal of the slaves needs an "Enabling Act." They ask the legislature to pass such an act.
