2: ENTRY 1 | I am Elijah Freeman. I live and I am from Buxton. I am 11 years old. I was the first kid in Buxton to be born free, and I guess you could say I am famous just for that. That is not all I am famous for. The other reason I am famous is because when Fredrick Douglas came to visit I threw up on him for a half hour. Fredrick Douglas should of known not to shake a me or a baby after a meal.
3: Entry 2 | Sunday after church I was doing my chores, and I found a set of peculiar tracks. So, I went to ask the Preacher what these peculiar tracks were. The Preacher said,”Well...... Those are hoop snake tracks.’’ “Sir what is a hoop snake?’’ “Eligah hoop snakes are very venomous snakes,if you get bit you can live 10 days after you get bit but after 10 days your body explodes leaving only your longs, heart, and head attached to your skeleton and then you eventually of starvation.’’ Man that gave me the chills . The preacher said,”If I ever get by one of these I want you to blow my head of.’’
4: Entry 3 | When I was a baby Fredrick Douglas came to visit Buxton.He was proud about my free birth. Lets Just say Fredrick Douglas isn’t the smartest man shacking a baby above his head after a full delicious meal. I threw up on him for a half hour. Folks say I am famous because I was the first kid free-born in Buxton.
5: Man what a day. Today I caught a glimpse of what seemed to be five newly free slaves well they did not know it but we did the just scurried and hid behind the trees in the woods. My dad told me to go get Emma Collins and I knew why. When I returned with Emma we told her to acted casual and go talk to the slaves. She zigzagged all around side to side, forwards a backwards, and diagonally it took her like ten minutes but finally she got there and she started to talk to the slaves well at least her lips were moving. | Entry 4
6: Entry 5 | Man what a day! *sniff,sniff*Today Mr.Leroy was sick and he went down to lake Erie to get some supplies. On his way back to Buxton he fell off his horse and died. Also speaking off Mr.Leroy today we found out that the Preacher has been gambling all of Mr.Leroy’s 22,000 dollars away. Now he lives in a stable with pony boys. | By Breadchastick
7: If I could meet Elijah there would be a ton of questions I would want to ask him but if I could only ask five questions these are the five questions I would ask Elijah. First I would ask Elijah how it felt to throw up on Fredrick Douglas. There for I would ask how it felt to be the first free born kid in Buxton. Third how it felt when Mr.Leroy fell off his horse and died. There for how it felt when the preacher stole Mr.Leroy’s money and gambles it all away. Finally how it felt to have most of the people in the town depend on you for fish. | Entry 6
