I shos seed bad niggers whipped as many times as dere is leaves on dat ground.   Not Mars Bob’s niggers but our neighbors. We was called “free”, case Mars Bob   treated us so good.

  The whipping was done by the overseer or driver, who would say as he put the   whip to the back, “Pray sir, pray sir!”
