In chapter 17 of the book Uncle Tom's Cabin Why does Phineas stop to help Tom Loker? What do you think is going to happen to Tom in the Quaker house?

The slaves overpower the slave hunters and leave Tom Loker wounded and at the slaves' mercy. Phineas is a Quaker and a pacifist. He believes that violence is never the way. At this point I predict that Tom Loker might have a change of heart after being tended to at the Quaker house.
