Stamp Paid, still faithful to his Christian calling, finds Paul D at the church, begs his pardon for  interfering, and offers him shelter in any home in the black neighborhood. Paul D relieves Stamp  Paid's anguish by admitting that Reverend Pike did open his residence to him. Paul D refused the  offer because he preferred to be alone. Stamp Paid insists that his black neighbors are hospitable,  even if they do react harshly to excesses of pride. Trying to make amends for interfering with Paul D and Sethe's relationship, Stamp Paid tells Paul D  about the anger that caused him to consider killing his wife, Vashti, for her months-long sexual  relationship with her white owner. The humiliation he felt from his wife's relationship caused him to  change his name from Joshua to Stamp Paid. He states that his desire to murder was as low as  slavery ever made him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
