On the night of the liberation of the Jamaica slaves in 1838, a coffin was made & a grave was dug. Into that coffin they crowded all the various relics of their previous bondage & sorrow.
The whips, the torture irons, the branding irons, fragments of the treadmill, the handcuffs - they placed in the coffin & screwed down the lid.
At the stroke of midnight the coffin was lowered into its grave & then the whole of that mob of thousands celebrated their redemption from slavery by singing the Doxology!
It is a picture of the Christian's buried past.
