Petition #11483112


Thirty citizens of Lincoln County report that John W. Isaacs, while “considerably intoxicated," shot one of his father's slaves and was indicted for said incident. They further represent that "the said negro has since recovered from the wound ... and is now perfectly sound and well" and Samuel Isaacs "has since become reconciled with his sd son John." They therefore pray "that your honourable body will pass a law to release the said John W. Isaacs from the further prosecution of the sd Indictment."
