Oh what fun it is to ride

taken from Narrative of the Adventures and Escape of Moses Roper from American Slavery.

Another mode of punishment which this man adopted, was that of using iron horns, with bells, attached to the back of the slave's neck. The following is the instrument of torture:-- See image

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This instrument he used to prevent the negroes running away, being a very ponderous machine, several feet in height, and the cross pieces being two feet four, and six feet in length. This custom is generally adopted among the slave-holders in South Carolina, and other slave States.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One morning, about an hour before day break, I was going on an errand for my master; having proceeded about a quarter of a mile, I came up to a man named King, (Mr. Sumlin's overseer,) who had caught a young girl that had run away with the above machine on her.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

She had proceeded four miles from her station, with the intention of getting into the hands of a more humane master. She came up with this overseer nearly dead, and could get no farther; he immediately secured her, and took her back to her master, a Mr. Johnson.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Having been in the habit of going over many slave States with my master, I had good opportunities of witnessing the harsh treatment which was adopted by masters towards their slaves.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As I have never heard or read anything connected with slavery, so cruel as what I have myself witnessed, it will be as well to mention a case or two.
