Petition #11681504


Frances Hudson, a Louisiana man, bought on credit a number of slaves from Hugh and James McLaughlin, but failed to meet his payment schedule. To discharge the debt, the McLaughlins took "sundry negroes" from Hudson, and sold them in Kentucky. There was, however, a problem with the title for one of the slaves, Moses, who is of "peculiar Value in consequence of being an excellent house servant." The McLaughlins brought Moses back to Virginia, and ask that they be allowed to keep him without incurring any penalty for the importation of slaves into the state.
