- Two slave boys, Richard and Pinckney, were bequeathed to his wife, Catharine, by the will of Benjamin Newland. The will suggested that the slaves should not be disposed of outside the family, but the Supreme Court ruled that this restrictive expression was void and inoperative as she had been given an absolute estate in these slaves. These two slaves were clearly separate from the main body of property in the estate. Verdict for plaintiff affirmed. The slaves clearly therefore belonged to Catharine's estate and her administrator was entitled to recover.
