Abstract: 

Osler's humorous story about Dismal Swamp, which he visited with Futcher during Easter of 1900. He had been fascinated by the swamp and Southey's poem about it since he was a child. He had heard of a band of runaway slaves who had retreated to the swamp and who had not yet heard of abolition: Osler would take the message to them. Once in the swamp, he met one of the runaway slaves, who had the unfortunate affliction of a vertical eye. This slave, Hampton, took Osler and Jacobs to his home deep in the swamp, at which point Osler read Hampton and his family the Proclamation of Freedom. Osler tells of how he triumphantly caught a moccasin snake, another boyhood dream come true.
