I am reading Chesapeake by James Michener.  Could you help by summarizing "Voyage 4: 1616"?

"Voyage 4: 1661" of Chesapeake starts by discussing that the indentured servant Paxmore is not trusted, has starting wandering around and has had spies set upon him monitoring his movements. For this, servants may be put on trial for "depriving his rightful master of his labor." At the trial of Kenworthy, Paxmore is indignant and loudly protests in court against the verdict. Kenworthy assures Paxmore that the "dignity of [his] scars" lies in his "heart" and not in his back because he, Kenworthy, has forgiven his whippers.
