IN SLAVERY DAYS
Old Document Tells How Human
Beinrjs Wcro Bought and Sold
The following document, being a receipt for
the purchase of a young Negro woman named
Kmallne, and dated In 1852, elxty yearaago,
has been banded In to The Pubuo Ledger for
publication. It Is a gentle reminder of the
days when the servant' girl problem hadn't
arisen over the domestic horizon of Maysville.
"In those good old daya"(?) Negro men, women
and children were considered beasts ot burden
and wore beaten and even murdered by their
white masters. Many times In tho South
white men have brained their black slaves with
bludgeons or abot tbem down, killing them, and
the murderers were never even arrested.
Following la a copy of the receipt men

a Negro girl named Emallne, about 14 years
old, which Negro I warrant sound and healthy
In body and mlod and a slave for life.

The vendor was one of the wealthiest aris
tocrats ot Uaysvllla'of anto-bellum days.
Tha D.vld Wells mentioned was the late
Captain D. L, Wells of Murpbyavllte and a
brother of 'Squire John K. Wells ot this city.
It Is worthy of mention that Captain Wells
at once set the girl Emallne free after buying
ber and she went North.
Captain Wells was a gallant officer In the
old Sixteenth Kentucky Regiment, very few of
