Douglass really wanted to leave the plantation. When Douglass was seven or eight he was informed that he was to go to Baltimore to live with Mr. Hugh Auld, the brother to Colonel Lloyd's son-in-law. Douglass's last three days at the plantation were some the happiest of his life. Lucretia told him he had to be clean for Baltimore, so he was scrubbed thoroughly and was given his first real pair of trousers.
