I am Douglass and I was a slave on a plantation in Maryland. I was born in the early 1800s. Like many other slaves I was separated from my mother at an early age. I also spent my life hopping from master to master. One of my masters was Mr.Covey.
Covey was an evil man who enjoyed whipping the slaves. One hot summer day I passed out in the field. And covey comes and kick me in the face. After, he was looking for me for a while because thanks to the cornfield it was high so no one could see me so he finally give up
I ran away into the woods and met a man named Sandy Jenkins. He was very friendly and could tell me what i needed to do. He told me to go back to Mr. Covey’s plantation.
So i eventually i went home because i was getting hungry so i went home thinking that he would have forgot about me running away but he didn’t he came running straight for me.
So finally on sunday morning i went home “tried to be sneaky” but…… when i was entering the yard gate,out came mr.covey on his way to meeting.
When i thought that he was going to whip me but instead he was calm and nice and told me to go drive by the pigs lot nearby i don't know what he was getting me to do but i did it anyway.
