  •  That reminds me of a chapter synopsis from (5+ / 0-)

    William Still's "Underground Railroad". Such a thriller of a tale, just encased in those 24 words. With just a little imagination you can fill in the blanks (or read the chapter, lol) of all the stuff this man went through to get to freedom:

    CHARLES GILBERT, Fleeing from Davis, a Negro Trader–Secreted under a Hotel–Up a Tree–Under a Floor–In a Thicket–On a Steamer.

    :::spoiler!:::

    He made it safely to freedom.

    “If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
