Be it remembered that on the twenty second day of July in the year of our Lord Eighteen hundred and eighteen, Captain George Farmer of the said county of Middlesex in New Jersey brought before us Robert McChesney and Thomas Hance two of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas in and for the said County his female slave named Hannah Grene aged between twenty one and twenty two years - and the said Hannah being by us examined separate and apart from her said Master declared that she was a slave for life and that she was willing and freely consented to remove and go out of this State with James K. Cook a resident in the State of Virginia (to whom her said master is about the sell her) and to reside with the said James K. Cook rather than continue with and serve her present master - provided that he the said James K. Cook purchases and takes with her her female child named Rebeca Ann aged four years on or about the fifth day of April last past now belonging to John Smock in the County of Monmouth in New Jersey which said female child was born under the Abolition Act of the Legislature of the State of New Jersey by virtue of which act she the said female child will become free and entitled to freedom at the age of twenty one years. - In Testimony whereof we have hereunto set our hands the day and year above written.
