Petition #10384309


Andrew Gray states that his twenty-one-year-old slave Charles was arrested and jailed for theft in 1809. He further reveals that said Charles "after he was arrested and committed, did with other prisoners break gaol and escape, and has never since been heard of." The petitioner, thirty-four years later, now seeks compensation for the loss of the slave Charles, "for which he has not yet been indemnified."

Result: Rejected--see par #10384310.
