"Among the large crowd of Southerners sent to this school, I began
preaching emancipation in my pinafore. Mounted upon a window-seat in
an alcove of the great play-hall, I passed recess after recess in
haranguing a multitude upon the subject of Freedom, with as little
success as most apostles, and with only less than their crown of
martyrdom, because, though small boys are more malicious than men,
they cannot hit so hard."
Ludlow, F.H. "If Massa Put Guns Into Our Han's" The Atlantic
Monthly April 1865, p. 507.
