Prince, enslaved by General William Whipple and his wife Katharine Moffatt, accompanied the general through several battles of the American Revolution but was not freed until 1784. In 1779, however, Prince and Winsor were two of twenty African-born men in Portsmouth who signed an elegantly worded petition asking the State legislature to abolish slavery. The lawmakers tabled the petition. The local newspaper printed the text in its issue of July 15, 1780 "for the amusement" of its readers
