  • Hello Dear Madam, did you happen to  hear about how the compromise that went on last week is now making runaway slaves return back to their plantations due to the fugitive slave act?
  • Why , yes, I did. What exactly went on there? And how are they going to retrieve the slaves?
  • I am honestly not sure over what exactly happened at the conference due to not being a member of government. I got the news from one of the horseback riders on this plantation. And about getting the slaves back, I feel like they really should not. What about slave revolts?
  • Slave revolts are the least of our problems at this minute!! If any slaves tried to revolt, their owners should beat them proper!! We as a nation need to focus on bigger issues like decreasing the rate of sectionalism or the tension between the north and the south!!!
  • You just care about yourself and all of the coinage that you earn!!! What a selfish young gentleman!! And secession could also intervene with plantations and their earnings!! I am through debating this!!!
  • Hundreds of plantation owners have been killed by these bloody slave revolts!!! If you care about things less important than this like secession, you have a real problem!!!! This is a pivotal moment of our plantation finance because of the cotton gin!!
