A description of the action on stage
SONG AND CHORUS—OVERSEER AND NEGROES.
Swear by the silver crescent of the night,
Beneath whose beams the negro breathes his pray'r—
Swear by your fathers slaughter'd in the fight,
By your dear native land and children swear.
Swear to pursue this traitor, and annoy him—
This Jack, who daily works your harm,
With Obi and with magic charm—
Swear, swear you will destroy him!
Kolli kolli kolli, we swear all—
We kill when we come near him—
But we swear loud, for when we bawl,
Three-Finger'd Jack he hear us.
Swear to pursue, &c.
Kolli kolli kolli, &c.
Exit OVERSEER, L.H. Negroes slink away, R.H.
