Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Chapter 30 Summary

Northward Bound

  • Linda makes it to the boat.
  • The captain turns out to be a kind southerner who opposes slavery, but Linda—understandably—has a hard time trusting him.
  • Ten days after boarding the boat, they approach Philadelphia.
  • Together, Linda and Fanny watch the sunrise on free soil. Their eyes are moist with tears.
  • We're feeling a little sniffly ourselves.
