He who knows the social customs of Campania, the magical charms scribbled on the walls of Pompeii, the deadly curses scratched on enduring metal by forlorn lovers, curses hidden beneath the threshold or hearthstone of the rival to blight her cheeks and wrinkle her silly face, knows very well that such folks are the very singers that Vergil might meet in his walks about the hills of the golden bay.

This scene was renewed every morning, and the cries and moans of the poor suffering blacks, announced that they were enduring the penalty of slavery, in being the objects on which the irritable and malevolent passions of the whites are allowed to vent themselves with impunity; nor could I help deeply deploring that state of society in which the vilest characters in the community are allowed an almost uncontrolled power of life and death, over their innocent, and far more estimable fellow-creatures."

It was not only that he thought ill of the baronet himself, so ill as to feel thoroughly convinced that no good could come from that quarter, but he thought ill also of the baronetcy itself.
