Kentucky slave related population tally being a printed circular, 3pp. 4to., issued by the speaker of the house, titled, "In The Senate," January 1, 1852 of Kentucky's seventh census as recorded by D. Meriwether, as secretary of the state. This circular lists the number of that state's total representative population for each of its counties use in the mid term elections. Interestingly, the number counts show the divide, in each county, of whites vs blacks and we can see the counties that were nearly wholly dependent on slavery for economic survival. Counties that fall into this category include Fayette County with nearly one slave for every "free white" person and Woodford County where there were more slaves then "free whites." While on the flip-side Pike County only had only 98 slaves against 5,269 "free whites" and Johnson County slave population is small, if not smaller, with just 30 slaves vs. 3/759 "free whites." Recently discovered among the papers of a Kentucky merchant's archive and is offered here for the first time in the marketplace and is perhaps very rare. Expected folds, else VG.
