“Pa stayed with Mr. Roby two years after de war ended. Marsa didn’t give ’em   nothin’ when dey left. Fact o’ de business, Pa hadn’t never been told he was a   free man ’till de latter part o’ de year. Dat year he jus’ got what Marsa   wanted to give him but de next year he traded wid him ‘fore hand an’ got half   de crop.”
