"The slave among the ancients," says DeTocqueville, "belonged to the same race as his master, and he was often the superior of the two in education and instruction. Freedom was the only distinction between them; and when freedom was conferred, they were easily confounded together.” (The Sewanee Review, Aug., 1893)
