Description

At a meeting held at Georgetown College in 1813, the members of the Corporation of Roman Catholic Clergy decided to sell two "black servants" to the Rev. Bitouzey, a member of the secular clergy, who was in charge of White Marsh until his resignation on October 26, 1813. This resolution also approved the sale of an unspecified number of enslaved women from White Marsh.

This sale of enslaved persons appears to have been a settlement between the Rev. Bitouzey and the partially restored Society of Jesus.
