believes, invest the whole of the money received. He brought back with him to this County in the month of June, twenty one slaves. After his return, your Orator informed him that the time for taking up the note was fast approaching and urged him to set out immediately for the purpose of making sale of the said slaves. This also the said Wall refused to do and he and the said negroes are now in this County, so that in all reasonable probability the negroes cannot be sold in time to take up the said note. In addition to this, your Orator has lately understood that the said Wall in preparing to set out for the purpose of selling the said slaves, but not with the view of appropriating the money to the payment of the said note. Your Orator has been informed and he has no doubt truly that the said Wall has declared his intention of selling the said slaves and of appropriating the money to the payment of a private debt which he owes, and your Orator verily believes he will so appropriate it. Indeed he believes that he has already appropriated a part of the money obtained by the discount of the said note to his own private uses. Should he appropriate the money in the manner stated by him as aforesaid, your Orator will not only be greatly harrassed in taking up the said note, but he believes that he will find great difficulty in getting a reimbursement from the said Wall. Your orator believes that the said Wall has taken the title of the slaves purchased by him to himself without the least mention of your Orator's interest therein. In lender consideration of the premises and inasmuch as your Orator is remediless therein without the aid of a Court of Equity. To the end therefore that that the said Charles F. Wall may answer the allegations of this bill on his oath fully and unequivocally, that he may be injoined from carrying the said slaves from the County or from selling them, unless he will give bond with good security to account for the produce of the sale; that he may render an account of the money received by him and how he has appropriated the same, and that your orator may have such this relief as to Equity may seem meet, may it please the Court to grant the Commonwealth's writ of subpa &c 1830 Aug 32d Sworn to in open Court.
