Petition #11286103


Twenty-three-year-old Kissiah Trueblood, a free woman of color borne of free parents, represents that "after mature deliberation, upon her part, uninfluenced by any person, it being of her own free will and accord, she desires to become the slave of the said Dr Ritter," for whom she has worked the past two years "in the capacity of servant, receiving wages for services rendered." Trueblood confesses that "in her present condition she is destitute and without protection, and in the condition of a slave, she would be cared for and have the protection of her Master and to that end she prays your Honorable body to enact such law as to enable said Dr Ritter to hold for all time to come both your petitioner and children should she have any."
