Number of Manumissions

Fifty slaves were set free in this county previous to the 1st day of June, the period when the new law on that subject went into operation. The manumissions, how- ever, do not in most cases take effect immediately, some of them having been extended to 1870 and ’75. In Frederick county one hundred and thirty- six slaves have been manumitted.
