North Carolina Slave Document 1859. Rental Of Slave From Minor Heirs.  For Sale

North Carolina Slave Document 1859. Rental Of Slave From Minor Heirs. 

North Carolina Slave Document 1859. Rental of slave from minor heirs. 

Rental agreement written on medium weight blue letter stock. Roughly 6" x 7". Some edge pieces missing, but overall legible and mostly complete. I have included the text as interpreted by me. Some words are clipped or missing and some I could not make out 100% but the overall interpretation is accurate.


Note that there is an old repair in the center that also has some writing on it of related to another financial transaction. Likely a piece torn from a ledger and affixed to this document to affect a repair. Judging from the date of the information on this strip of repair medium, the repair was post 1870, although it is hard to say how long past this date. Other marks are seen on the reverse, most of which are obliterated; redacted at some point no doubt to obfuscate the name(s) of the attorneys responsible for managing the affairs of former slave owners.


All in all a relatively rare person-to-person slave rental agreement. All the more rare for involving minor heirs by proxy.

While the company goes to extensive lengths to root out fraudsters, there are always new cons being spawned to part collectors with their money. This reality makes it hard for legitimate sellers and buyers alike, but such is the world we live in.
