MVB, Senate remarks on Anna Dubord relief bill, 14 May 1824

The bill reported by the Committee on the Judiciary, "to permit Anna Dubord to land certain slaves in the State of Louisiana," was taken up in Committee of the Whole. The lady for whose relief the bill was drawn, had left the country; and, on her return, requests permission to land her household servants, which she took from the country with her. Messrs. Holmes, of Maine, J. S. Johnston, of Louisiana, and Van Buren, explained the circumstances. Mr. Chandler opposed, and Mr. Mills advocated, the passage of the bill. It was then reported to the Senate, without amendment; and passed to be engrossed and read the third time.
