There were six men two colored skin and four white men, Fredrick and the other slave were confused, they didn't know what was going on because they haven't even tried to escape yet. It turns out another slave ratted them out to on of the overseer's.most of the slaves just got tied up but these two slaves named henry and john were a lot of trouble. They were putting up a fight trying to not get wiped or punished Henry was running around the guards while John was caught and tied up. Henry stopped and was screaming “i will never be tied up i will keep running and running until i am free.”
they finally got Henry to stop running away and they were all tied to chairs ready to be punished. Douglass told all the slaves to get rid of their protections so there wouldn't be anymore evidence of them trying to escape. They finally rounded up Henry and he still hasn't got rid of his so frederick told him to eat it with his biscuit. Douglass and the other slaves were put into a stone prison, and Douglass had given up all hope.Douglass thought he would be a free man and a few days before Frederick was full of hope and now he i full of despair. Then walks in Mr.Auld into the prison.
Douglass was very confused that Mr.Auld walked in because he thought he hated Douglass because Mrs.Auld taught him how to read and write. It turns out douglass was going to be sent to alabama a very hot and harsh slave state.mr.auld came in and bailed him out of prison. But for some reason he was not sent to alabama and master auld sent him back to Baltimore to live with his brother and learn how to trade. Douglass suddenly got hope that he has never felt before in his life hope that could possibly change his life forever. douglass learned that if everything doesn't work out as planned don’t give up just keep trying an trying until you achieve your goal.
