The old couple is being evicted yet the emancipation letter is a reminder that they were once slaves,
"Be it known to all men that my negro, Primus
Provo, has been freed by me this sixth day of August, 1859. Signed: John
Samuels Macon . . ."
They were free to live the American dream; this is what their dream turned out like.
