Whereas, much evil exists in the county of Twiggs, in consequence of owners and managers of slaves, permitting them to hire their time, and live separate and apart from their owners or managers, and from the liberty given by the owners or managers of slaves, to them, to furnish victualing on public days, in said county -- For remedy whereof,
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Georgia, in General Assembly met, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That from and after the first day of January next, it shall not be lawful for any owner or manager of any slave or slaves in the county of Twiggs, to allow him or them to hire his or their own time, to live on a separate town lot, from his owner or manager, or to hire themselves on any farm or plantation, or hire any slave or slaves to any other person to the intent that said slaves, may be allowed to live separate and apart from their owner or manager, or to be allowed to furnish victuals for sale or accommodation of any person or persons whatsoever, and that any owner or manager offending against this act, shall be deemed and considered guilty of a misdemeanor, and subject to indictment for the same, and on conviction, shall be fined in a sum not less then fifty dollars, nor more than one hundred dollars.
Sec. 2.

Provided, That the jailer shall not be authorised to receive any slave from said freeholders until one or more of them shall file an affidavit, that said slave or slaves, has been apprehended with a view to the inforcement of this act.
