Nathaniel Ross owns land in both Maryland and Delaware. His Maryland land is two miles from the state line with Delaware along the Nauticoke River. The timber in this area is ready to be harvested and carried to the ports of Baltimore, Washington, and Alexandria, he states. He therefore prays "the enactment of such Law as in your Judgment may be proper, to enable him to work his own Slaves, from this State, on the aforesaid Land and afterwards bring them back and retain them in as slaves."
Result: House: read, referred to committee.
