Tom Walker lived with his wife in Boston, Massachusetts, on a inlet. This area was in a swamy area. There were very little trees around they were mostly scattered trees around this part of Boston, Massachusetts.
Tom had explored a different part of the neighborhood and took a shortcut back to the house. This shortcut took him through a swamy area where it was super dark. It was dark because of the massive tall trees. Some of these trees appeared to be around ninety feet tall.
While Tom was walking through the swampy wooded area he came upon a skull. He kicked the skull to get the dirt off of it, the he heard a gruff voice. Tom had met the devil.
