Douglass says that Covey's "pious soul" adds to "his reputation as a ‘nigger-breaker.'" From what you know, make a prediction about what will happen at Covey's.

Although it would be nice to think Covey will get what he deserves, it is difficult to speculate. There are many evil men in this book who do not get punished for their horrid deeds against slaves. Still I had thought that perhaps, out of desperation, Douglass might stand up to Covey as he later does.
