Twenty-five-year-old Eliza Hassel "humbly prays your Honorable body to pass an act authorising your memorialist to bind herself in perpetual slavery to Shephard R. Spruill." Hassel confides that she "is moved to make this application by the fact, that in the service of a kind master, with the claim for support and protection which this relation will give her, her condition will in every respect be greatly bettered."
