Petition #20584103


James Trotti asks that Ephraim Ponder be enjoined from further action against him with regards to his note for the purchase of the slave Clinton. Trotti explains that he bought two slaves, Henry and Clinton, from Ponder for $2500. Trotti charges that Clinton was of an unsound mind and body, often suffering fits of an "aggravated character" that rendered him a liability. Trotti asks that Ponder "be decreed to credit thereon the price of said Clinton."
