The Boston child slave case....



Item # 638415

September 24, 1836

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Sept. 24, 1836 

* Commonwealth v. Aves
* Boston slave girl - Med Slater
* Transportation of slaves


The ftpg. has an item on the interment of Aaron Burr's remains. Inside has four pages of text concerning: "The Boston Save Case", being the case of the slaver girl Med. See Wikipedia for much more on this historic case, which established a precedent in law that slavery was local & liberty general. This precedent was widely appealed to by antislavery forces in their future litigation. Terrific detail in this report.
Also in this issue: "Volunteers For Texas".
Sixteen pages, 8 1/4 by 12 inches, bit of light damp staining, good condition.
