Powhatan Nov 12 1815 I have known Edward Woodson the petitioner almost from his infancy. his character has ever been, that of a faithful honest & industrious Servant, and I have frequently been informed by Maj Woodson, who liberated him that it was in consequence of his faithful Services and correct deportment that he had given him freedom.
