This is a bill of sale, 1 June 1774, for a slave named Boston Loring, sold by Benjamin Dolbeare of Boston to Benjamin Williams of Roxbury for £58. Dolbeare was the administrator of the estate of Nathaniel Loring. Although this is a bill of sale, it is endorsed as a "manumission," and it is unclear whether Boston Loring was freed as a result of the sale.
