The Indenture of servitude between Charles Paine and Samuel Hamner and William W. Davidson, bound Amy Menice as a servant to William W. Davidson. This agreement states that Amy is to serve faithfully and apprentice with Mr. Davidson until she turns twenty-one years old. In exchange, Mr. Davidson will teach or have someone else teach Amy "the art, trade, and mystery of spinning, sewing and weaving." He is also responsible for providing the servant girl with appropriate food, lodging, and clothing. At the end of her term, Amy is to receive payment for her legal freedom.
