General Petition Information

Abstract:"Old and well advanced in years," Sarah Dupre asks to be compensated for the loss of her slave, who had been "tried, Condemned, and Executed agreeable to Law" in March 1778 and "Was appraised by the Court who sat on his tryal to the sum of Eighty pounds." Dupre laments that she is "infirm in her Constitution, and thro' misfortunes is left with but barely sufficient to keep her above want." She therefore "earnestly intreats" the legislature "to direct that the said sum of Eighty Pounds aforesaid to [which] she conceives herself intitled be paid."
