Petition #11283001


William Whitfield, Edmund Whitfield, and Allen Whitfield of Wayne County request that slave patrols from Lenoir County be permitted "to Patrol the Negro houses" in their neighborhood. They point out that "this little section of Wayne lies at some distance from the body of the Patrols generally appointed ... and has generally been neglected by them," whereby "the Negroes of Wayne Lenoir and Duplin Counties are in the habit of collecting at those houses to the injury of the owners of them and the neighbours."

Result: Senate: referred to select committee.
