Click on an image to enlarge

This is an interesting original document that is dated from 1852. It is from St. Mary's County in Maryland. It shows that W. Goodland had been paid $5.00 for "...arresting Negro Carter and bringing to jail". What is interesting is that at the bottom it states that it was "Cost in Case ... & Slaves of H.G. Hayden." This let us know that the case was about a captured runaway slave. The paper is 7-3/4ths inches by 6 inches in overall size and the fine old brown ink on blue reed paper and it is clear and very legible. It is an interesting document from the antebellum South.
