On April 10,a fire broke out in the LaLaurie residence on Royal Street, starting in the kitchen. A hot tub is tucked away in the far corner with foliage blocking the hot tub from the rest of the pool space. Two cops stopped me and asked me to come around the corner with them.

Harriet Martineauwriting in and recounting tales told to her by New Orleans residents during her visit, claimed LaLaurie's slaves were observed to be "singularly haggard and wretched;" however, in public appearances LaLaurie was seen to be generally polite to black people and solicitous of her slaves' health.
