I am the widow of Dr. Emerson, who owns Dred Scott and his family, Mrs. Eliza Emerson.
After all I've done for him and his family, providing them with shelter and he a job, and they're still not happy.
Just because my husband, Dr. Emerson moved to Illinois which prohibits slavery, Scott thinks he can ask for freedom.
He can forget about it. He has shelter and work right where he is.
Yet, even though I tell him this, he serves me with court papers in a fight for his freedom.
I guess this is what I get for being a good person and providing work and shelter.
