Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Chapter 37 Summary
A Visit To England
- Mrs. Bruce dies. This is really sad for Linda, and a little nerve-wracking for us. What's Linda going to do now?
- Luckily, Mr. Bruce keeps her on as a nurse for little Mary. They all travel to England, so Mary can be with her relatives.
- Linda notices that the English poor are oppressed, but they're still better off than American slaves. They’ve got homes, access to education, and legal protection.
- Linda stays in England for ten months and never encounters racial prejudice.
