Petition #11385402


Twenty-two residents of Orangeburg District represent that "there is greatly needed, a specified, Ticket, which every slave shall have in his possession, when traveling from place to place." Declaring that they "find the Law very lame on that particular" and "the present mode of tickets ... are a Nuisance to the community," the petitioners pray “that there be a law passed, that every slave shall have ... a Ticket specifying the places where they are to go." They also pray "that all slaves caught by the patrol (after the act passes) with a ticket not specifying the places he is to visit that the patrol Law be administered to him."

Result: Referred to committee on colored population.
