Kidnappers in Philadelphia

"Before Hopper published his Tales in the National Anti-Slavery Standard, he published The Life of Cooper in 1832. In 1820, Thomas Cooper left Maryland, made it to Philadelphia where he landed a job, bought a house, got married, had several children, and lived in peace until his master found him and sold him to Georgia speculators. Cooper escaped, made it back to Philadelphia but could get no peace because he feared his master might find him again." p. xiv.
Available as a hardcover and softcover edition.
