William Anderson. William was a slave in Virginia. When about twenty-five years old, he left his master and went to Philadelphia with two of his fellow slaves; giving as a reason that he wanted to try whether he could n't do something for himself. When they had been absent a few months, their master sold them running to Mr. Joseph Ennells, a speculator in slaves, who procured a warrant and constable and repaired to Philadelphia in search of his newly acquired property. They arrived on Sa
y; and I recommend a similar course to thee with regard to these poor fugitives.
The speculator finally agreed to sell the three men for two hundred and fifty dollars. The money was paid, and he returned home.
In the course of a few days William Anderson called upon Isaac T. Hopper for advice.
He informed him that Thomas Harrison had bought him and his companions, and told him he had better find the other two, and go and make a bargain with Friend Harrison concerning the payment.
