Many persons having left this place who are indebt to me and
having gone to your section of the c'try—I am induced to trespass
on you in making the inquiry, whether their property can be
pursued before your tribunals for debts contracted here? and if
so what step should be taken to do it.—I have of debts due me and
which are in my hands for collection about 20,000 against citizens
of the province all of whom are slave holders. Your politeness in
answering this note would confer on me a singular favor.
