OUR NIG;

or,

Sketches from the Life of a free Black,


IN A TWO-STORY WHITE HOUSE, NORTH.


SHOWING THAT SLAVERY'S SHADOWS FALL EVEN THERE.



BY
"OUR NIG."


"I know
That care has iron crowns for many brows;
That Calvaries are everywhere, whereon
Virtue is crucified, and nails and spears
Draw guiltless blood; that sorrow sits and drinks
At sweetest hearts, till all their life is dry;
That gentle spirits on the rack of pain
Grow faint or fierce, and pray and curse by turns;
That hell's temptations, clad in heavenly guise
And armed with might, lie evermore in wait
Along life's path, giving assault to all."
--
HOLLAND.
