A POWERFUL BLACK WOMAN
IN JULY 1789, PHILLIS WAS THE CAUSE OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION AND THE DEATH OF LOUIS XVI AND MARIE ANTIONETTE. THE AUTHOR OF THE JONNY CAKE PAPERS BOOK PRIMARILY REFLECTS ON HER BEING HIS GRANDFATHER'S UNIVERSAL COLORED COOK. HOWEVER, HE ADDRESSES HER ACCOMPLISHMENT OF BEING THE CAUSE OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION IN ALL 26 CHAPTERS OF HIS BOOK WITHOUT GOING INTO DETAIL AS TO HOW. THE AUTHOR,THOMAS ROBINSON HAZARD, DOES DEFINE HER COOKING EXPERIENCES. THE "JONNY CAKE PAPERS" BOOK WAS COPYRIGHTED IN 1915. IT HAS SOME OBJECTIONABLE LANGUAGE USING THE "N" WORD. SUCH LANGUAGE IS USED BASICALLY BECAUSE THEN AS WELL AS NOW SOME OF US ARE TRULY IGNORANT OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUAL THE FIRST RACE. SCIENTIST HAVE PROVEN THAT WE WOULD NOT BE HERE IF IT WAS NOT FOR THEM AND IF THEY ARE AN "N" WHAT DO THAT MAKE US? READ THE BOOK THE STRENGTH OF PHILLIS IS AMAZING.

The author of the book, "The Jonny Cake Papers" highlight in each capter how" Phillis, his grandfather's colored cook, was the cause of the French revolution and the death of Louis xvi and Marie Antoinette. That just about sums it up. Hardly anything else is mentioned about Phillis not even her last name. The era was during colonial times so maybe she carried the name of her owner. The author's brother, Joe makes a statement that can not be over looked. "The Negroes", continues Joe, "Are a superior race to the whites in many respects. They have loving, feminine hearts, the highest endowment of nature , the religious element is preeminently active in them......" Jonny Cake Papers copyright 1915.
