General Petition Information

Abstract:Richard Paulett is the administrator of Jesse Paulett's estate. He claims that he "casually lost" a slave named Hesther, "a wench of the value of five hundred dollars." The slave ended up in Thomas Hanner's possession "by finding." Paulett alleges that Hanner knew that Hesther belonged to him, as administrator, but has not delivered her. He "has converted ... [her] to his own use to the damage of your petitioner one thousand dollars." He asks the court for redress of grievances.
