Flowers left for Harrison Blake
Harrison was strongly against slavery. His home was a known stop on the underground railroad, but secrecy was of utmost importance. It worked for a while, as the guests arrived at night. The next day spirited off to Oberlin. His daughters began wondering how a ham could disappear in one day.His oldest daughter learned the secret and Harrison kept her from going to school when they had "guests" in the house.
