The heirs and executors of deceased slaveholder Patrick Foley ask for an act of emancipation for two slaves in Foley's estate: Sall and John. In his will Foley expressed his desire to "manumit and set free from slavery" these two slaves. Sall, they explain is about fifty years old and John, Foley hoped, would be bound to a trade and sent to Ohio.
Result: Referred to committee.
