Peter Hudlin

The human cargo would arrive at Peter'shome in crates. He would uncrate the run-away slaves, feed them and provide space for them to rest in his basement until nightfall. He would recrate them and under cover of darkness, load the crates onto a wagon and drive across the river to one of the two major underground routes northward near Alton (Lockhart, 1976).
