Details:Petition for mitigation of sentence....The memorial of Mary Daniels most respectfully sets forth - That she was put in goal at the early age of 11 years. She was scarcely conscious of the guilt, where she remained for 2 years before she was brought to trial. That she was then found guilty of the same and condemned to die; but was subsequently reprieved. That your memorialist remained still in goal for 5 years longer, when she was sent to this colony in the ship Experiment and has been here for near 6 years. That upon a representation of the above circumstances, your memorialist obtained from the late Lieut-Governor, emancipation. That Memorialist has aged parents and relatives in England from whom she has a considerable expectation; that during the time she has been in this colony she has borne an upright and honest character; Therefore begs leave most humbly to implore that Your Excellency will be graciously pleased to take her case into consideration and that from the circumstances above related particularly her having served so long a servitude, Your Excellency may be induced to grant her an absolute Pardon that she may be enabled to return to her aged parents to be some comfort to them in their old age and for such humane favour memorialist will ever prove herself grateful ......
