Weston and William Patterson state that they paid James Henderson $212.50 for "a certain negro man named Isaac & a certain Mare or Philly." He "the said James undertook then and there warranted and promised that the said negro man Isaac & the said Philly were sound and well." Isaac, however, was not well and soon died.
