Perry asserts that "the slave being a prime and valuable fellow, your Petitioner has consequently experienced great loss." Prince was appraised at five hundred dollars. Prince's nephew, Thomas, testified that his said uncle gave him "3 lumps large as the end of his finger" and that Prince told him "to put it in the coffee & let nobody know."
