General Petition Information

Abstract:Thomas Tims represents that he purchased two slaves, Jupiter and Fanny, at a public sale for "a large price in Cash" and that he "solemnly declares that he had not the most distant idea of their being confiscated property or he would by no means have purchased them." As a person of modest means, Tims asserts that "it would greatly distress himself and his family if he should be so unfortunate as to have them taken from him." He asks that he be granted "such relief as your Honours in your Wisdom shall think fit."
