This is a superb original and scarce slave bill of sale from the State of Tennessee dated 1842. This one is dated in brown ink from Montgomery County, Tennessee on August 15th 1842. A receipt for one hundred and twenty-five dollars for the sale of "a Negro Girl named Netty." Signed "Daniel McCauley" There is also a notation that he warrants the girl to be ".... to be a slave for life". Often when you see the estate totals the slaves were by far the greatest valued item in the listings. The paper measures approximately 7-1/2 inches by 5-3/4ths inches in overall size, which is just the right size for framing. You can see on the back of the paper that they were reusing a previous slave bill of sale paper. This is a fine piece of Civil War history from antebellum Tennessee!
