I’m going to be truthful with you, yes. I
have thought of escaping multiple times.
When I was being soldI found myself at
‘Sullivan's Tavern’, I thought of taking hold
of Ruth's palm and escaping through the
kitchen’s back door. The backdoor was
wide open enough to run through without
any complications. But Jenny, the owner
of the tavern’s wife, had advised us not
to, because of the consequences there
could be. I’m not sure where she is today,
but if I could thank her I would. If not for
her, God knows where Ruth and I would be.
II will not deny it, yes, I have tried
escaping from Madam. It did not end in
my favor. When I found out my sister had
been sold, I tried running away. I hoped to
search for her. I tried going to Colonel
Thomas Regan for help, but he did not
have that kind of power. Many people
grabbed at me and I was knocked out.
The next events were a blurry mess.
I was severely punished and I got branded.
On my right check, an I to represent
