1855, Wheeler v. Passmore
August 5, 1855 letter from John H. Wheeler to Governor Thomas Bragg with two legal decisions, requesting that North Carolina provide an attorney in
northern states to "protect and defend" slave-holding state citizen while traveling in those states. Wheeler attached two habeas corpus cases which
described the abduction of three of his slaves while traveling in Pennsylvania; Passmore Williamson, an abolitionist was accused of masterminding this
raid. The first decision supported Wheeler's claims, and ordered the arrest of Williamson; the second, in federal court, denied the prisoner's
application for habeas corpus in a jurisdictional decision. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of titles originally held by the Library of Congress).
