One day, Silas almost reconnected with his lost humanity! Sally Oates, a local woman with dropsy, came to him. He helped ease her pain with a foxglove concoction.
Afterwards, Silas' demons were pretty angry...
Them village hoodlums ain't got no sense! They're a talkin about us again! They're a sayin that we practice witchcraft! This is exactly why we should hate them!
In the small village of Raveloe, Silas Marner was not the only person with a big drama to deal with. The family of Squire Cass was...unique. The older brother, Godfrey, was blackmailed by Duncey, the younger brother. Duncey knew Godfrey's big secret: he was married but loved someone else.
Duncey talked Godfrey into giving him his horse, Wildfire. Duncey accidentally killed it and was forced to walk around. He stumbled upon Silas Marner's cottage!
Duncey comes into the cottage to talk to Silas. However, he wasn't home. Duncey found Silas' savings and stole all the money!
All of my money is gone! Why would God do this to me?
Hmm.. maybe I should go tell the townsfolk at the Rainbow about this...
