Petition #21385770


William Carter, the guardian "of the person and estate" of Wallace G. Rudd, requests the court's permission to sell several slaves. Daniel Rudd died in 1856, leaving a last will and testament, in which he "bequeathed to his son Wallace Rudd" seven slaves. The petitioner reports that said slaves have been "hired out for the present," because Wallace Rudd has "no land upon which to work them." Carter asserts that "negroes are now selling very high" and that the sale would be "much ... to the interest of ... Wallace G." The petitioner requests that a sale of said slaves be approved.

Result: Granted.
