- Birth certificate of Eleanor, born April 9, 1807, to a 'Negro woman Margaret' and her husband Pompey. Includes note that Eleanor was baptised by Reverend Mr. Harris [probably Rev. William Harris] at St. Mark's Church in the Bowery and sponsored by Margaret's owner, widow Christian Marschalk of New York City. In document, Marschalk expresses concern that a certficate had not already been submitted by her attorney, Dirck Ten Broeck [Dirk Tenbroeck], and thus submits a second.
- Assorted advertisements for sale of slaves, rewards for return of runaway slaves, the slave trade, and slavery in general, most unattributable to particular newspapers. Includes three engravings (two duplicated) of slave forts in Africa with captions, "The North Prospect of James Fort in the River Gambia," and "A View of Cape Coast Castle, with part of the Negro Town." Several advertisements are in manuscript form, and appear to be submissions for printing.
