Letter from Former Slave to Former Master

A piece of US History is here on display that is both awesome and heartbreaking. The first two paragraphs sound like a letter from an old friend with some weird touches, but one would expect some oddities when dealing with post-Civil War, former slave/master communication. The final paragraph and post script are a great screw you to a former slaveholding asshole. There is something to be learned here by many current individuals that you can be vicious and classy when finally getting the opportunity to stick it to a true oppressor.
