1810.098: Petition seeking Alterations to Laws on Chattel Slavery.

Published: 1810

Full Title: To the honorable the General Assembly ... inhabitants of the county of Berkeley ... pray, that the law ... may be so altered ... to permit persons ... to bring their slaves into this state, and retain their property in them ...

Author: Inhabitants of Berkeley County.

Place Issued: Martinsburg

Issuing Press: John Alburtis

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 36 cm. x 21 cm. (broadside)


Sheet lacks colophon; clearly a petition from Berkeley County where the only press was conducted by John Alburtis at Martinsburg, the county seat; also size and format matches another petition from Martinsburg (1810.091) to this Assembly; so the attribution here.
