Petition #11384901


A. V. Toomer represents that he "was the owner of a negro slave named John," who was "lodged in the Work House in Charleston for safe keeping." Toomer explains that said slave had been tried and "was convicted, sentenced and publicly executed" for “aggreivously wounding maiming and bruising” three white men in “the outbreak at that Institution which took place during the past summer.” The petitioner therefore prays that "he may be authorized to receive from the Treasury the Sum of Two Hundred Dollars as set forth in the said sentence."
