"The pickaninnies are Samson and Delilah on Sundays, but Sammy and Dilly for every day. They are just five and more than a handful for their big brother, Job, who is eight, and who is left in charge when his mother, Mammy Jinny, goes up to the Big House." In an illustration we see the twins playing at being a spirited team of horses (hitched to a plow?) while big brother Job "drives" them- with real reins!
