General Petition Information

Abstract:Manuel Aquair seeks to foreclose on a loan for $425 that he made to Nicholas Morgan; he also asks the court to order Morgan to surrender the slave, July, who Morgan offered as collateral. Noting that Morgan has not repaid the debt, the petitioner believes he is entitled to said slave; Morgan, however, will not settle the debt or surrender the slave. Aquair therefore asks that Morgan "may be forever foreclosed and barred of and from his right or equity of redemption in the said negro slave so mortgaged."
