After the fight, Douglass doesn't understand why my Covey doesn't take him to the police. From that point on, my covey doesn't mess with him anymore. When Christmas comes, Douglass has a holiday and all slaves have six day between Christmas and new years off from work. And drink as much as they want. After his years at Mr covey, Douglass get hired to a master, Mr Freeland. Mr Freeland lets the slaves do whatever they want in their free time, Douglass set up a little school, so he can help other slave to read. Douglass starts to think to escape with other bunch of slave. After, sometimes they come up with a plan. They decide to seal a canoe and row north as far as the river will take them.
