The dogs of the slave traders would sniff them out and lead them to his house.
How could he, a senator, be found hiding slaves when he just voted for a law that forbade Ohioans from hiding runaway slaves?
Harry would give the hiding place away in the morning.
All of the above.

5: Stowe has Mrs. Byrd dress Harry in her dead son's clothes to provoke the reader into feeling:

sorry for Mrs. Byrd's loss.
anxiety for Eliza 's and Harry's possible imminent death.

None of the above.

6: Senator Byrd persuaded fellow legislators to vote for more stringent recovery of fugitive slaves laws because:

He did not understand slavery beyond just words on paper.
He never experienced empirically the agony of the defenseless suffering fugitive.
All of the above.
