He say us Niggers might better be’s pow’ful sad when us come to   dat fun’al. An’ dem Niggers was sad over de death o’ dat poor old dog what had   chased ’em all over de country. Dey all stan’ ‘roun’ a-weepin’ an’ a-mournin’.   Ever’ now an’ den dey’d put water on dey eyes an’ play lak dey was a-weepin’   bitter, bitter tears. ‘Poor old dog, she done died down dead an’ can’t kotch   us no more. Poor old dog. Amen! De Lawd have mercy!’
