General Petition Information

Abstract:On 1 January 1840, Edmund Bishop hired a slave named William for $60 from James Jameson. Bishop now argues that William was ill on two occasions and unable to work throughout much of the year. Bishop suggests that Jameson knew William was ill, yet swore to his sound condition. Jameson has sued Bishop for payment of the debt, and Bishop asks that he be released from the full obligation of agreement.
