Petition #20883703


John Barcley and Henry Tenney, lumber merchants, represent that George Douce, a free man of color, owes them $226.55. The debt represents the unpaid balance against a total purchase of lumber worth $411.55. Barcley and Tenney believe that Douce is "on the eve of leaving the state of Louisiana forever," but that he owns property in the parish, “real, personal & mixed.” They therefore pray that Douce be decreed to pay the debt and that a writ of attachment be issued to seize his property or as much as is necessary to meet their claim.

Result: Dismissed.
