Archibald Finly [Findley], administrator of the estate of Archibald Campbell, asks permission to sell lots in the town of Montgomery rather than slaves to satisfy debt against the estate. Finly states that the slaves are "negroes which are of great advantage to your petitioner and the Guardians of said Campbells heirs by applying the money arising from the hire of said negroes to the support of said heirs." He claims that sale of the city lots "would be far less injurious to the said ... estate and the heirs thereof than a sale of the said negroes or any part thereof."
