    sold to my estate
    wade of willow spring
    one negress answering
    2 da name Sapphira
    pure African stock
    a mother a Queen
    limb & teeth sound
    all warranty
    against the vice and maladies
    prescribed by my law
    do not hold forth she be.

    Purchaser being in full knowledge
    affexing signature in witness
    thereof that said Sapphira
    is half prime lean and inflicted
    she be with sullenness
    entertains a bilious nature

    she having resisted under reasonable
    chastisement performance of field
    (or) labour that served on occasion
    in the capacity of her own
    not without extreme mischiefment
    suspicions of delving witchcraft

    I in hold bond the drums of nubian worship
    and test - ta - fi in whole the entire bliss
    she yet not know of me which was sold

    CONDITION OF SALE
    ONE HALF GOLD TENDER, ONE HALF GOODS IN KIND
    FINAL WORD.

    Deep.......... $RICH$

    Takes me back to a time, when the auction block was our reality, and what it must have felt like, the humiliation, despair and the unknown terror of what will become of you. Your vision made the image so real.........u got it goin on with this one. Epiphany

    I think that's all

    fact that I'm feelin'
    it...
