Isaac Walker represents that he is the owner of soon to be thirteen-year-old Moses, a slave "untill he arrives to the age of twenty five years." Walker also reports that he recently moved from Delaware to Maryland and "there now resides on a farm owned by him." The petitioner, being "desirous of removing his said Slave to the State of Maryland, for the purpose of working him on this said farm," therefore prays that a law be passed "authorizing him to remove his said Slave from this State into the State of Maryland."
