Notice of appearance in a Kentucky court of a woman in slavery, who alleged she was white. It was claimed that she had been in slavery from childhood until about two years ago when she was released on writ of habeas corpus. The Judge placed upon the jury the necessity of establishing the presence or absence “of any of the characteristics of the
African. None of these appearing to the jury, their verdict was in favor of the woman, and she was set free.”
