In a recent battle fell a secession colonel, the last remaining son of his mother, and she a widow. That mother had sold eleven children of an old slave mother, her servant.

That servant went to her and said,

"Missis, we even now. You sold all my children. God took all yourn. Not one to bury either of us. Now I forgive you."

--Atlantic Monthly, January 1863.
