Petition #10379604


George Waller “is a resident near the line which divides the State of Delaware and the State of Maryland," and he is "compelled to have business indiscriminately with the Inhabitants of both States." Waller reports that a business dealing resulted in an indebtedness which was discharged by his "taking a Negro woman named Phillis and her Child named Stephen." He further states that he has had "frequent applications" to buy said slaves, but he fears that "the purchasers wanted to send them to the Southern States." Waller therefore asks that "a Bill be passed into a Law to enable your Petitioner to remove said Negroes from the State of Maryland into this State."
