[missing figure]

Except in the before mentioned case of
RobinRobin aliasRobertRobert , I am not aware of the question
of slavery having ever been in the courts of
Justice in Lower CanadaCanada that other cases
might be found in the archives in my custody but
unless some resonable clue thereto be
(as was done in Robin'scase) I cannot undertake to
seek for them with any prospect of success There is
nothing in the record to show the grounds upon which
the judgement in Robin's case was renderedbeyond
what appeares upon the face of the documents them-
selves. such a judgement mighthave been rendered
from insufficient proof on the part of Mr.Fraser who
claimed RobinRobin as his slave. And further I say not.
