Petition #11379103


John Jordan states that "in November 1778 the only slave that your Petitioner possessed was executed pursuant to a Sentence of Two Magistrates and five Freeholders for Poisoning." He further asserts that "said Slave was valued according to Law at ₤1200 -- Old Currency for which he received a Certificate." Jordan claims that he presented said certificate for payment when "the Town was invested by the British Army under General Clinton which induces your Petitioner to believe was the reason that his demand was not paid." Jacob therefore prays that "the Commissioners of the Treasury may be directed to Pay" him for his loss.
