Douglass was not sad to depart; his mother was dead, his grandmother lived far away, and he did not have strong feelings for anyone else. He believed he would probably be as likely to find home elsewhere as here. Even if he experienced the same hunger, cold, whipping, and toil, it would be no different if he had stayed. Furthermore, he had always wanted to see Baltimore, having often heard of it in good terms.
