Anthony Burns

December 29, 1854

The Evening Telegraph says that Burns has been sold to “a North Carolina negro trader, (after $1400 had been tendered both here and in Virginia, and after he had promised to let Rev. Mr. Grimes have him), for the sum of $700, with a condition in the bond that he should never be sold to go North. And this is the fate of this poor victim.”
