Some insinuations were made James T Callendar wrote an article It was published in the Washington Federalist newspaper However, he had no proof We did not want newspaper headlines such as ‘Slave Mother of President’s Children’ Or, ‘President Has Children with Unmarried Mother’ Therefore, I stayed on the plantation The only city that I visited was Paris It changed my life in some ways, but not in others It was an interlude between slavery It was the start of an incredible relationship A relationship with a man who I trusted One that continued for nearly 40 years Indeed, it lasted longer than most marriages © Dr Charles J Margerison - The Amazing People Club 57 Amazing Women A relationship with the most powerful man in the country Except, he could not abolish slavery If he had freed me, I would have had to leave Virginia Because of his debts, he needed slaves to run his plantation In all, he had over 100 slaves However, he did what he could for our family With his help, our daughters, Harriet and Beverley, escaped Our sons stayed on the plantation They were freed in the Master’s Will He died on July 4th 1826, aged 83 I was 53 years old and officially remained a slave My best years were behind me What would happen to me?

The husband or the lover? It was better not to ask and so that was the way it was At first, I was shocked, but came to realise the reality I was in France It was the French way of dealing with issues Indeed, was it so different than relationships at home in Virginia?

Of course, I kept such concerns to myself After dinner, the talk was more about the situation in France There was great unrest in the villages, towns and cities The people in high society feared a civil war The gap between the rich and poor was immense Just like the gap between the landowners and slaves in Virginia Before midnight, my Master would thank his hosts Taking my arm, we would retire to our shared room Less timid than on the first occasion, I knew what to expect He was always kind and considerate, respecting my needs There was a time and a place for the formal and the personal Never rushed, he helped me develop emotionally and physically Indeed, I found the visits and the evenings most enjoyable Experiencing what it was like to be a society woman Since arriving in France, I had moved up the social ladder From slave to ladies maid and from a niece to a companion But, I had also gained a privileged position I had become the Master’s chosen woman, a courtesan He had taken me to the theatre, to the opera and the Grand Balls More than that, I had met the King of France and stayed at his palace The Master had made me a woman of standing in all respects © Dr Charles J Margerison - The Amazing People Club 53 Amazing Women What more could a slave girl ask for?
