Den I would slip off an’ sometimes get cotched up with. I’d tell ’em   I was gwine down to Ma’s cabin. I had to git back in Marse’s house, dat made   it easy fer ’em to cotch up wid me. Ole Missus done de whuppin’.

  “On Sunday us went to church at de white folks meetin’ house. At other times   us would git together an’ have worship amongst our selves. Den us could sing   our songs and shout an’ sho’ ‘nuf’ enjie a good meetin’.
