William M. Kennedy, vs. Samuel T. Bodine and the Commissioners and Inhabitants of the Kensington District of the Northern Liberties; Error to the District Court of the City and County of Philadelphia, September term, 1838, no. 313: Statement of Defendants in Error

Philadelphia: s.n., 1847. Pamphlet. 16 p.; 22 cm. Disbound from a volume of unrelated 19th-century pamphlets. "22" in ink at upper right-hand corner of first page. Caption title. At head of title: "Supreme Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania. July 1847, No. 40." William M. Kennedy claimed that his property running from Maiden St. to the adjacent wharf in the Kensington District of the Northern Liberties (at the time not part of the city of Philadelphia) included half of the street and the wharf itself. Elihu Duplessis Tarr (d. 1851) and John Meredith Read (1797-1874) represented Samuel Tucker Bodine (1810-1879) and the commissioners and residents of Kensington, offering the history of the property back to the orignal 1689 grant to Michael Neilson and through its ownership by William Masters and his descendants to show that both the street and the wharf had been public property. Very scarce. In Very Good Condition: disbound; light foxing, primarily on first page; otherwise, clean. Very Good. Item #005104

Price: $85.00
