COLONIAL NEW YORK 1756 Mayors Court document involving a financial matter and signed by the notable Pierre De Peyster, a member of the prominent New York family. De Peyster owned a slave named Pedro, who was a participant in the 1741 Slave Uprising in New York. At least one account states that Pedro was absolved from coaxing others to join the uprising. More than 30 slaves who participated in that revolt were executed. This Mayors Court case, offered here, 6 x 8 ½, involved a lawsuit seeking nineteen pounds with Waters Smith suing William Kennedy and John Dunlap. The document has been executed in rich period brown ink. The De Peyster signature is pristine. Folds and light toning. Our goal is to please every customer.
