(SLAVERY AND ABOLITION--SLAVE SALES.) Executor's Sale of Slaves !!! Letterpress broadside, 13-1/2 x 9-1/2 inches; top edge uneven; a couple of early ink spots; printer's flaw rendering one portion of the lower text rather faded, yet entirely readable. (WGC) Clay County, Missouri, 1860
a highly unusual slave sale for three old men. All three are described as 'about' sixty-one, 'about' fifty-four etc. In most cases, age was certainly played down rather than up. So it is a practical certainty that these men were at least the ages stated. The life expectancy of the average male in 1860 was about 45.
