Abstract: Richard Menefee states that he served as counsel to ALEXANDER GOWENS in an action of trover and conversion involving several slaves. The case is now pending. Although he "faithfully attended to the defence of said action," Gowens has not paid him his fee, which was agreed would not be less than $100. Gowens owns land in Lawrence County, and Menefee asks the court that as much of it as necessary be sold to satisfy his claim.
