A few slaves were left at some towns on Cape Cod, then they would reach New Bedford, and then they would be taken by an abolitionist there to Fall River, to be sheltered by Nathaniel B. Borden and his wife and sent by them to their home at Valley Falls, in the darkness of night, and in a closed carriage.
