Father said: Jacob, you go to the cupboard and get some cold grub and set it on the table for your friend. And after I had spread everything in apple-pie order, father says: Sit down there, Jacob, and wait on Aleck.
Of course it was not the fashion in those days to wait on any colored person. It was the custom for slave holders to curse and maul and beat them if they did not perform so much labor each day, and hardly allow them to have the Sabbath day on which to rest. Of course they were allowed to go 'coon or 'possum hunt. Ing when their day's work was done. You may talk about your good times and your hard times, but the poor Indians had the hardest time of all. Well, I tell you I have lived many years among Indians and among negroes, particularly the Indians, of which I will tell you later on.
