7059. PROPERTY, Sequestration.—

securing to the citizens of the Commonwealth
[of Virginia] an indemnification out of the
property of British subjects here, * * * in case the sovereign of the latter should
confiscate the property of the former in his
dominions, as well as to prevent that accession
of strength which the enemy might derive
by withdrawing their property * * * hence * * * the lands, slaves, flocks, implements
of industry * * * of British subjects, shall be sequestered.—
