My slavery life was difficult to live.

"I was born in Tuckahoe, near Hillsborough, and about 12 miles from Easton, in Talbot County, Maryland." (Douglass 20)

"Heart-Rending shrieks of an own aunt of mine, whom he used to tie up to joist, and whip upon her naked back till she was literally covered with blood."  (Douglass 23)

"My mother and I were separated when I was but an infant." (Douglass 20)
