Petition #11380901


Charles C. Ashe seeks compensation for a twenty-two-year-old slave named Monday, who "hath been tried convicted and executed for Burglary in Sept 1804"; he was also convicted of "taking a gun and ammunition & swearing he would kill a Certain Negroe fellow" belonging to Mary Crofts. Avowing that Monday "was of great utility in aiding him in his planting interest," the petitioner hopes "that there will be some alleviation of his loss." He therefore prays that "such allowance be made unto your petitioner as to your honorable Body shall seem competent with propriety." The "Justices of the Quorum" assessed Monday's value to be $400.
