Another Slave Case in Boston

January 19, 1855

From the Boston Evening Transcript, the story of Jackson, an alleged fugitive, who had been in the city for eight weeks.  A Capt Fox, pursues Jackson. Jackson was “taken in charge of, and in a short time was leaving, in the company of good friends, as rapidly as steam would allow, the city of Faneuil Hall, overshawdowed by Bunker’s monument.”  Fox pursues him but “finds that a long distance intervenes between himself and his prey, and the hunt is up!”
