Douglass decided to register a complaint and decided to head to St. Michael's. This was a long weary road for someone in his condition, and at times he had to hide from Covey who pursued him for a while. He reached his master's home and lodged his complaint. Master Thomas listened to him, but did not believe that Covey was capable of evil and would not kill Douglass. He commented that Covey was a religious man. Douglass was melancholy at this news, and headed back to Covey's farm. There he hid in the corn for awhile and Covey could not find him.


The response was unanimous and in thunder tones no one. He was sincerely apprehensive that he should do more than good.
