Description A photocopy of a slave contract between Thomas Crutchfield and Alexander Williams regarding a slave named Charles, age 23 claiming that Williams is giving the "right and title" of this slave to Crutchfield and warrants him "to be sound healthy and sensiable, and to be a slave for life". Charles is believed to be listed in the Crutchfield's list of negroes in 2011.036.052

Found with a note on Bill Crutchfield's stationary that reads "Tom--This slave contract has a lot of 'cosmetic' appeal and is quite old, Alexander Williams was Williams' Father-in-law. Enjoyed our visit the other evening, Lets swap some family stuff before we are both dead and gone! Cuzzin Bill."
