----, HARRY
    by Julia Munro

Harry (last name unknown), male, adult. Harry is mentioned three times in the Proctor's Daybook. He was owned by David Watts (P47122), and hired to the university by executor Nathaniel Terry (P47120). He is listed in a memorandum for "Hires made for 1822" that states, "Harry of N. Terry - Bond given (Blanket and hat) $60." A September 25, 1822 entry for $42.50 states, "To Nathaniel Terry Ex[ecutor] of D[aniel] Watts for hire Harry to 18th September 1822 Bond payable January 1, 1823." Lastly, a November 25, 1822 entry notes the payment of $5.50: "Labour amount to Proctor for his draft to D. Watts for the balance of hire of Harry."
See the 1832-3 Court Petition involving David Watts's son and Nathaniel Terry provides interesting details of the valuing and management of slaves once an owner has died.
