Text of 'The History of Mary Prince.' It was published in 1831 and was the first substantial account of the life of an enslaved woman. One of the worst periods of Mary's time in the Caribbean was the 10 years she spent on Grand Turk island working in the salt ponds. The labour left her feet deformed and in great pain. She also both witnessed and endured beatings and sexual harassment. Despite the pain it caused her to recall her experiences, Mary wanted her readers to understand the brutality of the slavery system and hoped that her story might encourage support for the anti-slavery movement.
