Opening The History of Mary Prince, a glimpse of Mary’s early childhood depicts just, humane treatment bringing her joyful satisfaction in her life. For example, Mary describes the wife of her master, Mrs. Williams, as “a kind-hearted good woman, … [who] treated all her slaves well” (pg. 7). Consequently, Mary recalls her willing dutifulness to Mrs. Williams’ directives, where neither fear of mistreatment nor hesitance from violent punishment lead her actions. Additionally, the opening of Mary’s autobiography introduces her relationship with her family, serving as another source of happiness in her early childhood.

It kind of made me feel like it was where I needed to be to grow as a person and helped me meet the people who I can call family to this day.
