General Petition Information

Abstract:Charles, "a man of color," claims that the will of the late John Hundley stipulated that he be set free after serving said Hundley fifteen years from date of purchase. Having completed said term of servitude, Charles now asserts that Hundley's administrators claim him as their property, and he "beleives himself to be in danger of being sent to a distant state ... with a view of preventing him from asserting his right to freedom." He asks that the defendants be restrained from removing him from the state until his case is heard and that he be granted his freedom.
