The Jury are instructed that though
they may find from the evidence
in the Cause that ElizabethElizabeth
Dixon, the mother of LouisaLouisa , and
grand mother of GeorgeGeorge - purchased
the said LouisaLouisa , with the intention
to emancipate her, and after said
purchase permitted her to act as a
free person, not subject to the control
of said ElizabethElizabeth Dixon up to the
period of the death of said ElizabethElizabeth
and that GeorgeGeorge was born of the
said LouisaLouisa after the said
purchase - such facts did not
work an emancipation, either of
the said LouisaLouisa or GeorgeGeorge
