    This part of the Texas Ordinance of Secession (1861) is referring to the Fugitive Slave Clause.

    This Fugitive Slave Clause was made into law by demand from the South, who felt that northerns disrespected their right to property. This clause stated that fugitive slaves from states that permitted slavery should be returned to their owners and it was also mobilized by South Carolina when it was justifying its secession from the Federal Union.
