Abstract:

Letter from attorney J. McClintock, Columbia, S.C., advising Leckie of the situation regarding Adam Smith, a young African-American man, who was being detained in the Columbia jail. Leckie had written in April outlining some measures he was undertaking on Smith's behalf, but having heard nothing more from him it had been decided "that Adam was born a slave, and that his friends had declined any further efforts on his account."

McClintock notes that the claimant's attorney notified his client of the decision, and he was expected to arrive from Alabama shortly; expressing concern about the short notice, McClintock advised Leckie "if Claimant should arrive and take away the boy before any further advices from you, you might pursue him to Alabama if you deemed it expedient."
