Petition #20583304


Harvey Harrington purchased a slave named Betsey from James Cole, an agent for George W. Barkley. At the time of the purchase, Cole represented Betsey as being sound and of good health. Harrington alleges that, in fact, Betsey had "a disease of long standing and of an incurable nature." Harrington asks the court "to order the said contract to be rescinded and to decree that the said George W. Barkley and James Cole pay and refund to him the purchase money."
