Douglass does not give too many details of his escape, for to do so would cause trouble for many of the people who had helped him out. Slaveholders might even become more vigilant and suspicious if they knew the details of this particular escape. There was no possible way Douglass would electively impair the escape of another brother or sister in slavery
