Secondly, Tom experienced a dramatic shift in his relationship with his masters through respect. Previously, Mr. Shelby and St. Clare had both respected Tom in that they treated Tom as a family member and allowed him to contact his family. Tom lived with his family at Shelby’s and wrote a letter to Aunt Chloe, his wife, with Eva from St. Clare’s. After Tom was bought by Legree, there was no respect as Legree physically abused Tom and asked him to defy his moral beliefs and to “take this yer gal and flog her,” (Stowe, 1852, p. 507).
