1 But Simon Legree heard no voice.
2 "Take off your boots," said Mr. Legree.
3 Legree took a silent note of Tom's availability.
4 Her master is Mr. Legree, who owns a cotton plantation on the Red River.
5 At last the boat stopped at a small town, and Legree, with his party, disembarked.
6 Legree, like some potentates we read of in history, governed his plantation by a sort of resolution of forces.
7 As they stood there now by Legree, they seemed an apt illustration of the fact that brutal men are lower even than animals.
8 It was well he did so; for Mr. Legree, having refitted Tom's handcuffs, proceeded deliberately to investigate the contents of his pockets.
9 Having died insolvent, it had been purchased, at a bargain, by Legree, who used it, as he did everything else, merely as an implement for money-making.
10 Legree had been drinking to that degree that he was inclining to be very gracious; and it was about this time that the enclosures of the plantation rose to view.

13 A dark, wild face was seen, for a moment, to glance at the window of the house; and, as Legree opened the door, a female voice said something, in a quick, imperative tone.
14 "If there were no planters except such as that one," said he, pointing with his finger to Legree, who stood with his back to them, "the whole thing would go down like a millstone."

17 Mr. Simon Legree, Tom's master, had purchased slaves at one place and another, in New Orleans, to the number of eight, and driven them, handcuffed, in couples of two and two, down to the good steamer Pirate, which lay at the levee, ready for a trip up the Red River.
