We fully concede that many of them do as much or more than any of us would do under similar circumstances; and yet they know that what they do amounts, after all, to the merest trifle. Those who have railed against 鈥淯ncle Tom鈥檚 Cabin鈥?as an incendiary publication have singularly (supposing that they have read the book) overlooked the moral of the hero鈥檚 life. Uncle Tom is the most faithful of servants. He literally 鈥渙beyed in all things鈥?his 鈥渕asters according to the flesh; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing God.鈥?If his conduct exhibits the slightest departure from a literal fulfilment of this injunction of Scripture, it is in a case which must command the approbation of the most rigid casuist; for the injunction of obedience extends, of course, only to lawful commands. It is only when the monster Legree commands him to inflict undeserved chastisement upon his fellow-servants, that Uncle Tom refuses obedience. He would not listen to a proposition of escaping into Ohio with the young woman Eliza, on the night after they were sold by Mr. Shelby to the trader Haley.
