Matthew Clay seeks payment for the hire of four of his slaves who worked on the Cumberland Turnpike Road. Stating that an agent for the state signed a promissory note for the slaves' hire on 21 September 1814 for more than four hundred dollars, Clay charges that said agent has died and "your memorialist has not received one cent for their services altho [he] holds the note executed from the State by his agent."
Result: Senate: referred to committee on claims; house: tabled.
