Descripción

A manuscript contract quite specifically listing the terms of hire for these individuals- the three suits of clothes required for each negro, requiring no one be put to work on a railroad, canal or mill. They are also not to be moved not more than 10 miles from their present location. Lucinda is contracted to Isaac Lamm; Tempy to James H. Barnes; Cader (for his Board & Clothes to Zilpha Scott, likely to be Benazah's widow; Will to Charles A. Scott; Chany to Thomas Barnes. It seems that Charles A Scott is to be paid $18 for keeping Maria & two children. The location is not indicated, but is in an American southern state. A search of Ancestry.com has not easily revealed where this group of people were living. Dated 22nd December 1858. 8 x 9 1/2", blue lined paper, entirely manuscript. N° de ref. de la librería 10568
