John Garrison, a black slave, petitioned the court for his freedom from Mrs. Janet Lingan. That petition is "still pending and undetermined." Garrison charges "that one William Beverley Randolph, pretending to have purchased your petitioner of said Mrs Lingan, is about, with the privity & consent of said Mrs Lingan, to remove your petitioner out of the County of Washington." Garrison asks that the defendants be "enjoined from removing your petitioner or causing procuring or suffering him to be removed" until his case is settled by the court.
