“When niggers run ‘way frum de plantation dey was whupped, but dey had to go   to de sheriff to be whupped. De sheriff, he would tie de nigger to a tree an’   whup him till de blood run out.”

“All our niggers had to have passes to leave de plantation an’ when de   pateroller kotched ’em wid out’n a pass, de nigger was whupped. Sometimes de   plantation owner did hit an’ sometimes de sheriff. Dey used a long leather   strop cut at de ends.”
