Capt. Isaac Hanley seeks compensation for his troops who were called out "on immediate Service for one day at the Execution of some slaves (Criminals).” He reports that "four of his most active troopers" were ordered "to continue in Constant service until discharge ... for the purpose of suppressing a conspiracy of the slaves" in Wayne County; the said men served continually for several days. Noting that "we have not received any pay for the said Service," the petitioner prays "your Honours to allow them such sums as they are in Justice intitled to."
