Mrs auld taught douglass to read, because slaves weren't aloud to know how to read. they sent him to mr covey who was a slave breaker. didn't break him, after leaving coves plantation douglass got rented out by mr freeland. Douglas was reaching manhood and decided he doesn't want to be a slave anymore and he wants to have freedom as his fellow slaves. Douglass taught a sabbath school were a taught his other slaves. While on mr freelands plantation douglas thinks about how he is going to get others to join him in the journey of freedom.
Douglass is trying to get others to join get freedom. While everyone wants freedom but no one ever tried. He wanted to fill their minds with the thought of freedom. As he filled there minds with the great thought of freedom and how wonderful it would be they joined. “How would you know what freedom is like if you never tried”. First henry then john then others start joining. They were all very determined to get there freedom but they were worried. “No one has tried it before” that they knew of how are they going to do it. Douglas opened up a door no one thought would ever be opened the thought of freedom. “How about new york?” douglas says “straight to new york none stop” they all shout.
Everyone was excited they were finally getting there freedom, but they were worried about how they were going to get treated,how are people going to react to free slaves . “Im worried, what if they send us right back” “ i promise that i won't let you down” douglass says. “It’s not going to be easy watchmen are all over this place” henry says worriedly. If they failed there were very bad consequences. Once they finished their plan they talked it out. “ paddle, boat, and protection”.
After planning and everything douglass wrote the protection. He wrote them to make sure they are safe while they are traveling on the bay to new york.”i won't let anyone get caught while on the bay” douglass says assuredly. “thank you douglas i appreciate your effort” john says That night douglas could not sleep. Douglass had this feeling that he could not explain while he stayed up all night waiting to escape the next day. Douglass knew he was more anxious than all the others he could tell because they were all worried.
Douglass was so anxious that he couldn't sleep that night. He knew that all the others were worried and were scared of what was going to happen if they get caught. Douglass knew that if they had failed their mission they would get punished very badly or even worse . He had this indescribable feeling that couldn't go away. When morning rises douglass walks to the field and as he walks he ses 2 white men and two colored me standing. Mr. freeland calls douglass over and at once they tied him up and so as john. Henry soon comes and they tried to cuff him but they just broke into a fight.While all the fighting is happening douglass throws all the evidence he has into a fire. Once they got henry into cuffs the men forgot what they were there about and just accused for trying to escape.henry didn't know what to do with his protections to douglas told him eat eat it with his biscuits in the morning

I should have never even tried i don't even know why i did he thought to himself.douglas was supposed to be going to alabama to go work on a plantation. “There was a change of plans your lucky” mr freeland says. “Instead of going to alabama” like mr.freeland told him “im sending you back to my brother mr auld to learn the system of trade”.
