In the 1930's The Rawick collection interviewed aged ex-slaves on their memories of slave times before those memories
were lost to the nation forever. Gus, one of Thomas' slaves was interviewed.
Gus remembered that Mr. Tom (Thomas) never whipped about nothing much but stealing. He never let his overseer do no whipping, if he knowed it. He would burnt you up about stealing.
Lots of time Newt and Anderson would tell Gus and another boy named John, to come and get under the steps while Mr.
Tom was eating his supper. When he would get up from the table, they would hear the sliding of his chair, cause he was
such a big man. Mr. Tom would then go into Kitty's room to sit by the fire to warm his feet and have his Julip. The boys
would run from under the house to the bushes near the front walk. Newt and Anderson would come out of the house with
ham biscuits for them. The biscuits would be full of gravy. We had good times then, like I never had before or since.
Mr. Tom was good to his hands that they all loved him all the time.
Gus stated that the young children and babies of the slaves were kept at home by the women too old to work in the fields.
Mr. Tom would check on these women everyday. The children on our plantation were well looked after. Sometimes it
was as many as 15 that was too little to walk. The mommies would not work until their baby was on a bottle, and in those
days no one under a year old was given a bottle.
