Go go go go go!

Every time I start to do some research I always end up finding something about slavery. I started off trying to find out about a house in Baltimore and ended up at the MD Historical Society where I went a few pages further and found some ads for runaway slaves. I know I shouldn't read them, because they break my heart, but I do anyway and I find myself chanting go go go go, like encouragement from the 21st century is going to do them a bit of good.

I hope this lot got away. There were so many of them, one an infant, that the heart trembles for their safety.
