Abstract:

Born in Edenton, North Carolina to slave parents who died when he was a child, the author is believed to be Harriet Jacobs' brother, John. He remained in and around Edenton, belonging to four different masters. After John escaped in New York while accompanying his master on a honeymoon tour, he soon learned about his sister's successful escape and they were reunited and together moved to Boston. John left the United States following the passage of the Fugitive Slave Law, while Harriet remained behind in Boston with her employer who eventually bought her from slave-catchers. The final installment of Jacobs's narrative from February 28, 1861, is a compilation of anecdotes about how slaves were treated in the south and a discussion of the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850.
