My Old Master

I usually think of a good come-back about 10 hours after I should have said it.  When I’m alone, I’m at my most eloquent.  On the spot? Not so much.  Here’s a letter that might be one of the best replies of all time.  It’s written by a former slave to his old master who is asking for his return.  The writer never loses his own dignity and yet utterly triumphs in making his point.

To My Old Master.
