The court responded by issuing a writ of habeas corpus to have Winter brought before it, which was done the same day. It reviewed the indenture he produced, and there being “nothing made to appear that the said servant had ever been provided for as in said indenture mentioned and the particular facts complained of appearing to be true” ... the court concluded that Winter was not entitled to retain John’s custody, which was returned to his mother.
