Haley, Marks, and Tom Loker trade stories of the suffering of their female slaves when the slaves’ children are taken away from them. Stowe shows the reader the intensity of the slaves’ suffering by recounting these histories; by using the voices of the traders themselves, she adds authenticity and downplays sentimentality. The rhyme was first published in in the “Nurse Truelove’s New-Year’s-Gift” or the Book of Books for Children” in London and afterwards in couple of other nursery rhymes collections.

The Bible is both a practical item in the novel—it is the only book Uncle Tom owns—and a symbol for the endurance of his, and other’s, Christian faith. Tom manages to keep his Bible from the hands of Simon Legree, and throughout his trials, as he moves from the Shelby estate to St. Clare’s home to the Legree plantation, the Bible is a source of comfort and strength.
