9781511799294: Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation: 1838 - 1839 (African American Studies - Slavery)

Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation 1838-1839 - By Frances Anne Kemble. A First Hand Account of Slavery. SLAVE PLANTATIONS. ‘I have been interrupted by several visits, my dear E——, among other, one from a poor creature called Judy, whose sad story and condition affected me most painfully. She had been married, she said, some years ago to one of the men called Temba, who however now has another wife, having left her because she went mad. While out of her mind she escaped into the jungle, and contrived to secrete herself there for some time, but was finally tracked and caught, and brought back and punished by being made to sit, day after day, for hours in the stocks—a severe punishment for a man, but for a woman perfectly barbarous. She complained of chronic rheumatism, and other terrible ailments, and said she suffered such intolerable pain while labouring in the fields, that she had come to entreat me to have her work lightened. She could hardly crawl, and cried bitterly all the time she spoke to me.’ Suitable Study Aid for; African American Studies - Social Sciences - Slavery in America
