Henrique, Alfred's son, is an example of how cruelty and justification of slave ownership is inherited from one generation to the next. The fact that a young boy can beat a slave so cruelly is meant to inspire fear in the reader as to what adult masters with equal of worse tempers can do. So too, Stowe wants us to question the fact that from birth, white children are taught that other human beings are their property and slave children know they have no agency over their own destinies nor physical persons.
