The following is an excerpt of a letter written by Gervas Storrs, currently stored at the Library of Virginia. It concerns Gabriel's Rebellion and is written to the Governor of Virginia. It is:

To the Governor of Virginia at Richmond

Sir,

This is to certify that I was in conduction with Joseph Selden and we were examining in magistrates in the case of the Negroes charged with conspiracy & a design to raise rebel against the white people; & from every incident which appeared at the examination, I do not hesitate to say that Gabriel the property of Thomas H. Prosser of Henrico County, was clearly proven to be the main spring and chief mover in the contemplated rebellion. Given under our hands this 8th day of September, 1800.

Gervas Storrs
Joseph Selden
