General Petition Information

Abstract:Seventy-two-year-old former slave George Daniel seeks assistance in his old age. Relating that he served on a privateer in the War of 1812, he avers that "he was faithful and loyal to his ... master and his family, that he has been polite and respectful to all." Daniel declares that "no resident of the state, more deeply deplores the disastrous termination of the war to both White and Black than does your Petitioner." He therefore "respectfully prays that its Representatives of his beloved state will do something to help the old man in his declining years."
