William Cox and John Teed having left the house before Esther went to St. John, literally driven away by ghosts.
I advise you to pray.
Esther is living with her friends the Van Amburgh's, on their farm in the woods. The ghosts do not torment her now. With the Van Amburghs she has a quiet, peaceful home.
The author went to see her at the farm, On August 1st, 1879, and found her making a patch-work quilt, on which she stopped working every few minutes to play with the little children.
Before departing he advised her to pray earnestly that she might never again, be possessed by devils. She promised to take his advice.So hoping that her prayers would be answered, he bade her farewell forever.
In Dan's little cottage all is now harmony and peace. Pretty Jane still tends her plants with loving care. Olive works as hard as ever, and so does honest Dan.
And there may they reside for years to come, enjoying the blessings which the virtuous always receive from the hands of Providence.
