Read 12 Years a Slave, by Solomon Northrup
How many lashes does Epps’ mistress tell Solomon he will get for learning how to read and write?
When Mistress Epps gave him a list of items to buy from Bartholomew, she noticed that Solomon was able to read. Solomon confesses he can read, but claims he can´t write and seems protective of any information regarding his education. The Mistress then reminded him that he was not to do anything besides the tasks commanded to him, and anything besides that (including reading and writing) would get him one hundred lashes.
