1849 Agent Bill For Hiring Slaves

1849 Agent Bill For Hiring Slaves

 

Alabama 1849, Single page manuscript agent bill on pale blue paper, 7.75" x 2.75". Very good condition with small stain along right edge.

 

"Recd of David Packer guardian for calvin … the sum of too [sic] dollars for … the hiring of the negroes + land this the 2 of January 1849"

 

These are actually quite scarce as most people hired their slaves themselves, not only to save the agent's charge but (more significantly) guard against skullduggery between the agent and the slave owner, which was known to occur frequently.

 

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
