This depends on what chapter you are referring to. 

Bad as all slaveholders are, we seldom meet one destitute of every element of character commanding respect. My master 3 was one of this rare sort. I do not know of one single noble act ever performed by him. The leading trait in his character was meanness; and if there were any other element in his nature, it was made subject to this. He was mean; and, like most other mean men, he lacked the ability to conceal his meaness.
