[(Continued from August Number). Cartwright on the Diseases and Physical Peculiarities of the Negro Race. DRAPETOMANIA, or the disease causing slaves to run away. Drapetomania is from * * * * * a runaway slave, and * * * mad or crazy. It is unknown to our medical authorities, although its diagnostic symptom, the absconding from service, is well known to our planters and overseers, as it was to the ancient Greeks, who expressed by the single word * * * * * the fact of absconding, and the relation that the fugit[i]ve held to the person he fled from. I have added to the word meaning runaway slave, another Greek term, to express the disease of the mind causing him to abscond. ...]
[It was common practice for masters to lease slaves to manufacturers who paid the slave for his work. Slaves entered into contracts that enabled them to earn money, typically divided between the slave and his master, which could be used to purchase freedom for themselves or family members]
