Abstract:In 1798, Richard Foster possessed a female slave named Kate. He now claims that in March 1799 he "casually lost the said negroe Girl Kate out of his possession" and that she soon "came into the hands of" Nathan Gouch, Joseph John Martin, and Augustin Williams. Since that time Foster has been unable to recover his property, and he now asks that the defendants be required to pay him five hundred dollars damages.
