Petition #11082904


Natchez barber William Hayden, a man of color, says that the Mississippi Act passed in 1822 concerning slaves and free people of color might well "produce absolute ruin to his prospects." He states that he has a good business, a good reputation, and owns property. In constant danger "of being driven from his home," he asks for "a special act exempting him from that part of the said act which requires his removal from the state."
