some dead Negro's grief. We lucky our
back? Or yours? Don't talk to me! Ha..You
lucky. You got one child left, still
pullin at your skirts. Be thankful. I had
of them gone from me. Four taken, four
chased and all, I expect, worrying
- alls I can remember of her now is how
little hands..I wouldn't know'em if they
slapped me. Can you beat that? Eight
children and that's all I remember.

You remember Halle.
of'em I guess..Halle, of course..I had
My two girls, sold and gone before I
third child, my son after Halle...I let
that straw boss have me for four months
so's I could keep that boy. Next year, he
pregnant with his child. I couldn't love
that child. I wouldn't. Not any of the
rest either. God take what He
would....and He did...
