Mr. Sands runs for congress on the Whig party ticket, and Dr. Flint, although generally a staunch whig, actively campaigns for the opposing candidate.

Mr. Sands wins the election regardless of Dr. Flint's efforts and prepares to leave for Washington. Linda wishes to secure her children's freedom before he leaves, however, so she arranges a meeting with him. She crawls out of her little den for the first time in two years and catches his attention en route to his boat for Washington. She asks him to arrange for her children's emancipation before he goes, and he tells her it will be done. She is so weak by this time that she cannot walk and can barely crawl. She is unable to get back into her den by herself and must wait for her Uncle Phillip to carry her into it. Her grandmother and her uncle disapprove of her leaving her den and speaking with Mr. Sands, but they pity her too much to reprimand her for it.
