The Over-seer was named, Mr. John Brooks. One time some one stole a sheep, and   the Over-seer went to all the negroes houses and smelt to cooking pots to find   out who got the sheep. They found it at the home of Davey. Mr. Brooks tied his   feet and hands to a stake and sure did lay the lash on him. Miss Mary had to   go and make him quit, when she thought he had been punished enough. Miss Mary   was mighty good to her slaves, but she wanted them to do right and when they   did not do right she had them whipped.
