“He was a cruel man, hardened by a long life of slaveholding. He would at times seem to take great pleasure in whipping a slave” (Douglass 23)

“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)

“This establishment was under the care of two slaves—old Barney and young Barney—father and son. To attend to this establishment was their sole work. But it was by no means an easy employment; for in nothing was Colonel Lloyd more particular than in the management of his horses” (Douglass 32-33)
