Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Artists in Today’s World ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe

Acknowledging Harriet (Beecher Stowe)

He was short thick-set man with features common but made up to appear distinguished. His nose was bulbous in a way that made him, despite his well-appointed dress, when combined with his mannerisms, gruff and obviously self-centered, ugly.

Sitting with him at the long table were an equally offensive group of conspirators whose features and appointments demanded fear.

“But what shall we do with them after we call their debt,” the thick-set man queried, polishing his nails, “for they will be no good to us, then.  We will have saddled them with eternal debt. They shall have nothing with which to repay us and yet they will continue to want to eat and their usefulness as slaves shall be no more. For we shall have all and they shall have nothing.”

~ Stephen J. Bergstrom
