In January 1802, John Sims possessed "a likely negro man named Sam," deemed $700 in value. He states that he "casually lost" the man, who "came into the hands & possession of Benjn Sims." John contends that Benjamin knows that Sam is his, but that Benjamin has kept him. John Sims estimates his damages at $1,000 and asks for intervention on his behalf.
