Abstract:John Adams recounts that in 1792 he "had the misfortune of having a valuable Negroe man (who was appraised at Eighty pounds ...) shot by a party of militia in pursuit of some runaways." He reports that he sent "the papers respecting the same to the Legislature" but that “his prayer was rejected on the belief that his demand came not under the sanction of the Law."
