Document J Voyage from Africa, 1756 "In a little time after, amongst the poor chained men, I found some of my own nation, which in a small degree gave ease to my mind. I inquired of them what was to be done with us? They gave me to understand we were to be carried to these white people's country to work for them. I then was a little revived, and thought, if it were no worse than working, my situation was not so desperate: but still I feared I should be put to death, the white people looked and acted, as I thought, in so savage a manner; for I had never seen among any people such instances of brutal cruelty... The shrieks of the women, and the groans of the dying, rendered the whole a scene of horror almost inconceivable. Happily perhaps for myself I was soon reduced so low here that it was thought necessary to keep me almost always on deck.... One day, when we had a smooth sea, and moderate wind, two of my wearied countrymen, preferring death to such a life of misery, somehow made through the nettings, and jumped into the sea;.... and I believe many more would very soon have done the same, if they had not been prevented by the ship's crew, who were instantly alarmed." Gustavus Vasa, The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olandah Equiano or Gustavus Vasa, Written by Himself (London: Printed and sold by the author, 1793), p. 46-53.
