Wythe to Robert Carter, 11 June 1771
11th of June, 1771.
The executor of mr Henry Randolph came to town this day, and we agreed to refer the affair of his slave, Moses Flood, to the arbitrament of mr Treasurer and mr Blair, who value the man to 100L and awarded us to pay that sum with 37..10..0, for interest, which I have paid accordingly. Perhaps you may hear of the fellow in Maryland, whither, it seems, he fled, and reclaim him for the benefit of the estates. John and Fidas tell me Anthony Hay, who I believe left not estate enough to pay his debts, had one of the horses; and John says he thinks a mr Tabb of Amelia had the other, which I suspect he is mistaken in. Do you recollect any thing about them? With the best wishes for the family at Nomoni, I am,
Your humble servant
Hon. mr Carter.
The Hon. Robert Carter, esq.
