"We buried him at the left of your parents beside mammy, and when I left a mantle of soft, white snow was flung over all. "I brought Fanny home with me, and Recta is living with Dr. Goodrich's family.

Abner walked at the head of the men. Perez rode by Israel Goodrich's cart. They went on slowly, and it was five o'clock when they came in plain view of Stockbridge.
