This chapter describes the process by which Fanny was educated to the duties and challenges of slave ownership. Cecelia was purchased as an infant by Fanny's father and eventually became Fanny's personal property, and the chapter discusses the evolving relationship between the two girls. It also delves into Fanny's family history and suggests how her father's attitudes shaped Fanny's views on slavery and slave management.
