receive therefor the 12 1/2 cents or the half pint of whiskey - thus it seems to me that the facts
& circumstances in every case are to be weighed with the intention of the parties acting therein
& to be charged therefor. The introduction of slavery or the attempt to introduce it is
regarded in some sort as a criminal act & is punished by a forfeiture of the property intro-
duced- we must then look to the intention of the party introducing the slave to determine
the degree of guilt & see if the Spirit of the Constitution has been violated since it is clear
it's letter cannot be enforced any other doctrine will convert the kind & tender nursing
by the master of his sick & helpless slave into a sort of crime
