He didn't whup us and he said, he didn't want nobody else to whup us.
He don't 'low no overseer to throw he gals down and pull up dere dress and whup on dere bottoms like I hear tell some of 'em do.
He didn't whup nobody very often, but he only had to whup 'em jest one time!
By some the vowel of whup is sounded like oo in book (Mr. Fox writes “whoop,” which, I presume, he intends for that sound).
Dey carried 'em down in de woods an' whup dem, den dey throws 'em in de pond, dere bodies breakin' de ice.
De Missis promus Marster Brown on his de'th bed nebber ter let us be whup'd en she kep her wud.
Dey tole me I had no marster dat dey had fighted four years to free us an' dat marster would not whup me no more.
Ole marster's son come out, an' wouldn't let 'em whup him, an' they wouldn't make him go back.
