Petition #20680706


James Huling bargained his female slave named Mary for Wingfield Shropshire's female slave named Chloe. Huling claims that Chloe was sold to him as being thirty-two years of age and sound of mind and body. He alleges, however, that Shropshire is guilty of trying to deceive him, as he knew full well at the time of the sale that Chloe was in fact "unsound in her intellect" and weak in her body. Chloe turned out to be "of no value" to Huling, who contends he has incurred $550 in damages. He sues Shropshire for this amount.
