    Injunction to Stop Selling Slaves in 1855 Galveston, Texas November 13, 1855, injunction to stop the sale of two slaves, Galveston, Texas. Choice extremely fine. Manuscript document on pale yellow, lined paper, trimmed to 8.75" x 7.5", two pages. This legal document is an injunction by Eleanor Spann against a Mr. Moore and Mr. Stockbridge, to stop the two men from selling specific slaves until a ruling has been made by the court. The two pages are held together by a single gold brad in the upper right hand corner. Paper quality appears new, with the black ink still strong. The second piece of paper has three small punched holes at top, not affecting the text. Excellent content and overall quality.
