There were many slaveholders in colonial Maryland, and Daniel St Thomas Jenifer owned a plantation with slaves. His outlook on the issue of slavery can probably be surmised from the fact that in his will he declared that all his slaves should be freed six years after his death. So, it appears that (like Thomas Jefferson) he did not like slavery, but accepted it as something necessary for the proper running of the plantation, and to support his livelihood. However, upon his death, he no longer required that "crutch" and, after a period of time to ensure that the slaves had the skills necessary to live free, he did what he felt was the right thing.

If you read his autobiography it states he ridiculed King George III for supporting it in the Declaration of Independence's first draft. It was written out after members of the Continental Congress, including New Jersey among others, argued against it.He also wrote appeals to the forming government to end it and send them back home, but it was not recognized.
