We find that ISABEL, the Widow of said deceased, who afterwards intermarried with one CHARLES WRIGHT held the slave as part of her Dower during her life time We find that said ISABEL departed tis life in the month of November last. We find that an agreement made between Plt. and Deft. and WILLIAM ROBINS, a younger Brother of the Deft. took the slave into his possession and still keeps her and that Plt. and Deft. passed each of them a Bond for ten pounds, ten shillings to WILLIAM ROBINS in consideration of the Right which the parties then did believe he, said WILLIAM, had to the slave and another Negro which ISABEL held as her Dower and that THOMAS upon a demand for an Instrument of Writing for conveying the slave to the Deft. solemnly declared that he would never claim the slave of him. If upon the whole matter the Law be for Plt., we find for him the Negro woman of the price of twenty four pounds sterling and a penny sterling damage; if not we find for the Deft." And the Cause is continued til next Court for the matters of Law arising hereupon to be argued
