Mills, B. W. & J. J. Wells - Agreement

Whereas on the 22nd of June 1859 B. W. Mills conveyed by Bill of Sale to her daughter Sarah Ann Mills the following slaves viz a boy Wiley aged 20 yrs. Caroline aged 18 years & her child, Bennett aged 13 yrs. Turner aged 14 yrs & Dibey aged 9 yrs. The intention of which said instrument was to convey to said daughter the said slaves to her sole and separate use and benefit free from the liabilities or control of any future husband and whereas there are some doubts as to whether said instrument does so convey said slaves and whereas said Sarah Ann Mills was married on the 28th June 1859 to H. J. Wells and whereas the said Wells is willing that said intention of said Mills aforesaid shall be fully carried out and perfected and whereas the said slaves have never been reduced into the possession or control of said Wells and he has not by possession control or ownership acquired any right to them and whereas he has never made any settlement upon his said wife Sarah Ann and the same is desirable so as to carry out the original intention of said instrument of June 22, 1859 and the same might be done by a Bill in Chancery to settle it on her to her sole and separate use. Therefore in consideration of the premises and of a valuable consideration moving from B. W. Mills to said Wells it is agreed upon that said Wells does hereby relinquish any and all rights in and to said slaves that he has or might require by reducing them into his possession and in settlement of the question of a settlement upon his said wife and the said Mills and Wells do hereby agree that the said slaves heretofore set out shall be held by said Sarah A. to her sole and separate use and benefit and free from the debts contracts or control of her present or any future husband.
