Servitude was often another demanding ordeal faced by migrants. Indentured servants were often worked too hard on plantations and many who worked on plantations were treated like slaves. An example of this would be Richard Frethorne 's letter to his parents describing the conditions he worked under.

Also, these life struggles are also not felt by the rare three percent of the population who have actually obtained the riches that were blessed by inheritance into an upper class
