This chapter presents excerpts from the suit regarding the slaves on the Cafetal Catalina who walked out on their mayoral in protest and ran off into the scrub. Francisco Martinez had been mayoral for two months, in charge of a work force of ninety-one slaves. The only thing that had occurred to him as a possible cause of such a mass exodus was that the previous mayoral apparently had accustomed the slaves to a lighter work load. However, the deponent was new at his job and made them work a little harder, allowing little respite from the tasks at hand, for the grass out in the fields was high now.

Keywords:   Cafetal Catalina, mayoral, Francisco Martinez, work force, slaves, mass exodus
