“There were no beds given the slaves, unless one coarse blanket be considered such, and none but the men and women had these” (Douglass 27)


"“Mr. Severe was rightly named: he was a cruel man. I have seen him whip a woman, causing the blood to run half an hour at the time” (Douglass 29)



“Colonel Lloyd kept from three to four hundred slaves on his home plantation, and owned a large number more on the neighboring farms belonging to him” (Douglass 26)
