Petition #11082902


A resident of West Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dempsey Cain is the guardian of his nephew, whose estate is located in Mississippi. He asks permission to bring "a Number of Valuable Slaves" belonging to his nephew, a minor, into Louisiana, where "he will be able so to manage and transact the business of said Ward as to make his Estate produce a greater profit." In the part of Louisiana where he lived the labor of slaves is, Dempsey claims, "more valuable and productive" than in Mississippi.
