MD PROV COLL: Newtown, sale of slave & rental agreements, 1843., 08/29/1843-11/15/1843

 File — Box: 6, Folder: 5
Identifier: 19663
This series groups material on Jesuit places in St. Mary's County, except for 'St. Thomas's Land' and 'Truth & Trust' which were covered in the preceding series. Very little material from those Jenkins-related places were associated with the places of this series except near the end (1840s) when some contracts concerning the two former Jenkins properties were executed by Jesuits stationed at Newtown. Generally, however, while series 5 and 6 both concern St. Mary's County, the two have little in common.
