General Petition Information

Abstract:Edward Hall seeks to revive a memorial "to enable your Petitioner to recover from the Possession of Job Riddick of the County of Gates" eight slaves which the said Riddick "unjustly detains." Noting that he has submitted earlier petitions to the legislature to no avail, Hall nonetheless conceives he cannot "obtain possession of the aforesaid negroes without Legislative interference, as his reduced circumstances will not admit of his instituting a suit."
