Actually he originally wrote

Actually he originally wrote "life, liberty, and the pursuit of property" as this was the way it was phrased. People were used to that phrase, but they couldn't put it that way because it would be too close to saying that slaves have the right to property, which slaveholders didn't like so they changed it.

The original is correct, and what they in fact wrote is meaningless. You have the right to pursue property unimpeded by coercive force, ie statist force. You do not however have the right to property.
