Clotel; or, The President's Daughter

Why does Mr. Walker not chain up the slave women that have children? And why wouldn't the woman try to run off?

Maybe it was too difficult for the slave women to run off with their children.

THe children would often cry and Mr. Walker couldn't stand this noise. He needed the mothers to quiet them. You are correct in that he knew they would not run off because mothers would never leave their children.
