Look inside the book:
I must stop a moment and give our Eliza, on whom this battle was waged, a little space in this story, for she occupied no small part in the events of the six years after; and when she left us and took an upward step in life by marrying a colored lawyer, I could not reconcile myself to the loss; and though she has lived through all the grandeur of a union with a man 'who gets a heap of money for his speeches in politics, and brass bands to meet him at the stations, Miss Libbie,' she came to my little home not long since with tears of joy illuminating the bright bronze of her expressive face.
...When Eliza reached New York this past autumn, she told me, when I asked her to choose where she would go, as my time was to be entirely given to her, that she wanted first to go to the Fifth Avenue Hotel and see if it looked just the same as it did 'when you was a bride, Miss Libbie, and the Ginnel took you and me there on leave of absence.'
...After we had strolled through the streets for many days, Eliza always amusing me by her droll comments, she said to me one day: 'Miss Libbie, you don't take notice, when me and you's walking on, a-lookin' into shop-windows and a-gazin' at the new things I never see before, how the folks does stare at us.
