Petition #20978601


Patrick McNemara states that although he has been in jail for the past ten weeks "on Suspision of being a Run Away," he is, in fact, a free man who has been "in the American Service in Captain Migills Company, Comanded by Col. Bakerfield in the Virginia Service." He explains that his colonel cannot vouch for him because Bakerfield was killed at the Battle of Camden, but "there is Severale that knows that I have or was not a Servant." McNamara asserts that he was unacquainted with the necessity of carrying a pass to indicate his free status and he asks to be released from jail.
