Sample Text:

Sojourner:        You can’t be talking about Uncle Tom’s Cabin? That was a masterpiece!

Booth:              You would say that! And what was your book called?

Sojourner:        ‘Narrative of Sojourner Truth’ – though I couldn’t actually write it. I left that to Oliver Gilbert.

Legree:             Illiterate, ignorant slave girl! Huh! What could you expect!

Lincoln:            She might have been illiterate but she certainly wasn’t ignorant! Just because shechose to spend all her wealth differently from you!

Davis:               A slave with wealth! Whoever heard of such a thing!

Booth:              It’s true! That book about her proved a best seller. And she was a very fine lecturer – though I say so myself!

Lincoln:            Well, her words weren’t delivered from a script! She spoke out about things that mattered! What a difference she made!

Legree:             Abolitionism! What a cause to follow!

Brown:             And to die for! If you really believe you’ve been called upon to do the Lord’s will, then the means justify the ends!
