Frederick Douglass was born a slave sometime in the 1800s on a plantation in Maryland. He knew very little of his parents and knew nothing about his birthday or age. Sadly, poor Douglass had to go through most of his life in slavery and didn’t get a chance to live a normal life. Douglass usually went from plantation to plantation when people needed him to work for them. Once Frederick had met the Aulds everything seemed different from what he was used to.
Once Frederick had departed from Colonel Lloyd’s plantation, he was off to Baltimore. Gosh he was so happy to leave that place. Once he had made it to the Auld’s he knew right away that this would be something different when seeing Mrs. Auld gentle gaze. “Hello, you must be our new worker! I am Mrs. Auld and this is my husband Mr. Auld.” she had said softly which had took Douglass by surprise. In response Frederick just bowed and shortly after was sent to work.
Day by day as Frederick worked on his new plantation, he was taking a liking to working there. Mrs. Auld was the nicest most caring person in Frederick’s eyes. She would often give warm smiles here and there and sometimes encourage him or the slaves to work harder in a kind manner. Mrs. Auld has even offered to teach him the ABC’s and Frederick gladly accepted the offer. Frederick knew that he would never get another mistress like Mrs. Auld and wished that it would be like this forever but all good things come to an end.
