Petition #10383703


Joseph Ford of Washington, D.C., reports that his wife, Julia Ann Green Ford, recently inherited "a certain family slave called and known by the name of Jane Green" from her father's estate in Delaware. Ford explains that he "wishes to remove the said slave to Washington City to be employed in his house as a Servant." He therefore prays that a law be passed "authorizing and empowering him to remove to the City of Washington the said slave Jane Green, and to hold her as a slave."

Result: House: read, referred; senate read.
