General Petition Information

Abstract:John L. Wilson, the governor of South Carolina and the guardian of Jehu Jones, attests that Jones, a free person of color, "has always borne an irreproachable character" and that "he is respected by all who know him." Wilson explains that Jones’s wife and family are "now abroad and prevented from returning to this State, under the penalty of the late Act." The petitioner therefore prays "your honorable body to permit the Said Jehu Jones to visit his family in New York, and to return to this state, by and with the Consent of your Honorable body." Wilson "assures your honorable body, that his ward is a fit and proper subject for the exercise of your Clemency."
