“My mother was brought out from South Car’lina in a speculator drove,
an’ Lady Liza bought her at de auction at Coke’s Chapel. She lef’ her
mammy an’ daddy back dere in South Car’lina an’ never did see ’em no
more in dis life. She was bidded off an’ Lady Liza got her, jes’ her one
from all her family. She was got fer Lady Liza’s house gal. But
sometimes she cooked or was de washer, den ag’in de milker. ’Twas my job
for to min’ de ca’ves. Sometimes I went to Mr. Ed Western’s sto’ at
Gaston, three miles from us house, to see iffen was any mail for Lady
Liza, but ’twa’n’t none.
