      Charles County Land Records 1782-1786; Liber Z#3; Page 21. Deposition, recorded at the request of John Harbin. The Deposition of Leanner Harbin, who deposes that, in 1782, Nicholas Serlott came to her husband, John Harbin's house, 3 different times, and by him was treated very ill each time. In the first place, he insisted that I should come to sd Serlott's store and deal with him to the half of my sd husband's estate without his knowledge of the same, which she, this Deponent, refused, and told him that she Was not in want of decent clothing, and that if she was, she did not choose to deal with any person without his leave. He then tried to persuade me to leave my husband and come to live with him, and that he would keep me a lady, for that I must be a damned fool to live with such a man as John Harbin so long as I had, to which I answered that Mr. Harbin had always used me well, and that. I was very happy with him. Sd Serlott then said he should be glad to gain my favor to ride in the woods with him. I then replied I would not. He then said if I would consent to go with him, he would give me a chintz gown for a night with me, and further said that if I would leave John Harbin and live with him, he would give me the horse that he then had there, all of which she refused, and asked him why he should have such an opinion of her as to make such offers, and that he had treated her ill, and that she would inform Mr. Harbin of his behavior when he returned home. Signed - Leanner (I her mark) Harbin.
