Walter Thomas & Dennis Thomas v. Alexander Scott. Philip Barton Key to Alexander Scott



The Negro family styling themselves Thomas, Petitioned against the Stone family of Charles County, pending the Petition the various Proprieters contributed to a fee, you by note long since paid, contributed your part, which state I think is among my old papers at my seat near George Town. I think at the time of the Tryal you lived in Virginia, and I have no recollection of any personal intercourse with you. At the Tryal there was as understanding with their Counsel (Thos Buchanan) I think, and I believe an agreement in writing, that the Verdict on the cause tried should conclude all cases. The Tryal was long, all conducted, and the Verdict against the Petitioners
