TEXTUAL NOTES 291

61.25/104.31 hoes] In this context, the intended word is undoubtedly "hoes."
The stem of the "h" is missing in all examined texts.
73.3/125.18 breast-bone] Hyphenating this instance of "breast-bone" is con-
sistent with Douglass's usual treatment of two-word nouns and with the treatment
of the term in 73.15/126.2.
89.18/155.29 ship-yard] Although this term is hyphenated in only six in-
stances of its approximately twenty-four occurrences in Bondage and Freedom,
hyphenation is consistent both with Douglass's usual treatment of two-word nouns
and with his usual treatment of "ship-yard" in his first autobiography, Narrative.
Douglass Papers
, ser. 2, 1.
97.28/170.32 ship-yard] See the preceding note.
97.38/171.13 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
98.14/172.3 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
126.26/220.34 course] The compositor's inadvertent substitution of "coast" for
"course," the term Douglass used in the passage from the Narrative (Douglass Pa-
pers
, ser. 2,1:50.10) that he is here reproducing, is found in all examined texts.
131.21/229.13 Master] Douglass consistently capitalized "Master" when cou-
pling it with the name of his owner. In the immediate context, see 132.14/230.29
and 132.29/231.19.
153.27/269.8 where] A1's omission of the "h" in "where" is corrected in A2–5.
176.21/309.4 go to] In addition to being demanded by the context, "to" is con-
tained in the passage from the Narrative that Douglass here quotes directly (Doug-
las Papers
, ser 2, 1:67.18). The compositor's omission in A1 remained uncor-
rected in all other impressions and printings.
178.7/311.28 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
178.12/312.3 ship-yards] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
178.39/313.10 daylight] Providing an end-line hyphenation and treating it as
one word is consistent with Dougalss's treatment of the word in 137.34/241.12
179.27/314.15 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
179.29/314.18 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
180.3/315.6 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
180.6/315.10 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
180.28/316.9 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
181.4/316.30 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
181.19/317.21 the nigger! kill] Consistency requires either deleting the end-
quotation mark after the first occurence of nigger! or adding a begin-quotation
mark before kill. Simplicity is served by deleting the end-quotation mark.
188.23/329.28 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
189.39/332.13 ship-yard] See the note to 89.18/155.29.
190.2/332.16 float-stage] As indicated in the note to 89.18/155.29. Doug-
lass's usual practice was to pull together two-word nouns with a hyphen, as in
