Stopped by a Tenant House. There were two slaves discussing the merits of accepting the Governor’s offer of them running away to join the British Army to gain their freedom. Three Colonial Militiamen came buy to talk to the one slave to strongly suggest that he (straw hat) not leave and to find out were the other slave (blue vest) went. This slave’s owner defended her slave, saying he had been with the family all his life and he would not leave. A real interesting skit.
