  3. THE NARRATIVE OF JANE GOULD

  I was the person sent in by Mr. Goodricke to do what was right andneedful by the remains of a lady who had died at the house named in thecertificate which precedes this. I found the body in charge of theservant, Hester Pinhorn. I remained with it, and prepared it at theproper time for the grave. It was laid in the coffin in my presence,and I afterwards saw the coffin screwed down previous to its removal.When that had been done, and not before, I received what was due to meand left the house. I refer persons who may wish to investigate mycharacter to Mr. Goodricke. He will bear witness that I can be trustedto tell the truth.
