Occasionally the slaves were ordered to church to hear a white minister; they     were seated in the front pew of the master’s church, while the whites sat     in the rear. The minister’s admonition to them to honor their masters and     mistresses, and to have no other God but them, as “we cannot see the other     God, but you can see your master and mistress.” After the services the driver’s     wife who could read and write a little would tell them that what the minister     said “was all lies.”
