Sd Negro girl was not above 6 years old, if that, when I heard sd Saml White first say he had given her to Guy White, and several times after that, I heard the sd Saml White say that Murrier belonged to Guy White. The sd Guy White being in debt and I being very intimate with the sd Saml White, he got me to put his son, Guy White, on board a vessel at the mouth of Patuxent [River], in order to go to Virginia to live, which he did, and after I returned and told sd Saml White what I had done.

      Question 3, why did not Saml White give this Negro girl into his son's possession - answer - the son, Guy White, was in debt and he was afraid she would be taken from him, the sd Guy White, being a housekeeper at that time.
      Question 4, what was the size of Guy White when the Negro girl Murrier was given to him - answer - a stout lad.
      Question 5, how many children had Guy White when you carried him to the mouth of Patuxent - answer - 2 children living.
      Question 6, who was present at the time Saml White gave this Negro girl, Murrier, to Guy White - answer - Benjamin White, Stephen Stamp, John Miles, and many others this Deponent cannot recollect. Signed - John Evans.
