"Dear Master" Letters of A Slave FAmily


LETTERS OF A SLAVE FAMILY Edited by Randall M. Miller
The fullest known record left by an American slave family, this assemblage of more than two hundred letters dates from 1834 to 1865. The collection reveals the relationship of two generations of the Skipwith family with the Virginia planter and slaveholder John Hartwell Cocke.

"An astounding uncensored commentary on the complex relationship between a family of seemingly privileged African-Americans and those who determined their fates."
