This storyboard does not have a description.
"About three o' clock of that day, I broke down; my strength failed me, I was seized with a violent aching of the head, attended with extreme dizziness, I trembled in every limb" (Pg. 399).
Where Mr. Covey beat him for being in the shade and not working, kicked him and told him to get up.
When he arrived too St. Michaels all he had to say was no he could not find him another slave owner and to walk on back, so he did...
"He told me with great solemnity, I must go back to Covey; but that before I went, I must go with him into another part of the woods, where there was a certain root which if I could take some of it with me, carrying it always on my right side, would render it impossible for Mr. Covery or any other white man to whip me" (Pg. 402).
He walked back on to Mr. Covey's plantation.
Mr. Covery was so kind and told him to gather the pigs that were nearby.
"He can only understand the deep satisfaction which I experienced, who has himself repelled by force the bloody arm of slavery.I felt as I never felt before. It was glorious resurrection, from the tomb of slavery, to the heaven of freedom" (Pg.403).
