after that, when i met with any boy who i knew could write, i would tell him i could write as well as he. the next word would be, "i don't believe you. let me see you try it." i would then make the letters which i had been so fortunate as to learn, and ask him to beat that. in this way i got a good many lessons in writing, which it is quite possible i should never have gotten in any other way.

In Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, the effect of Captain Anthony dying without a will was that Douglass was subjected to “valuation.” since Captain Anthony was Fredericks master.
Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is an 1845 memoir on abolition written by famous orator and former slave Frederick Douglass during his time in Lynn, Massachusetts. Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass consists on eleven chapters that retell Douglass's life as a slave and his desire to be a free man.
It made him feel degraded and disgusted with slavery.
In Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass after the death of Frederick's master, the master's property was to be divided between his two children. Therefore all the property were gathered to be valued, and Frederick together with his fellow slaves being considered "property", they were gathered to undergo the valuation too.
Being ranked among pigs and horses, and being subjected to the same thorough examination during the valuation made Frederick feel degraded, he saw how dispensable and utterly without free will the slaves are. That made him feel increasingly disgusted with his slave status.
Since Captain Anthony was Fredericks master, he was subjected to "valuation" (to be sold to other slaveholders.)
