Petition #11483325


Seventy-two residents of Davidson County praise Loo, "a man of colour formerly the property of W B Lewis." They "certify that he is a person of correct deportment" and that "he is of humble and respectful manners and has sustained a good character as a slave and having purchased his own freedom as well as that of his wife and child." They therefore "hope he may be liberated without being compelled to leave the State."

Result: Reasonable.
