Wesley Pritchel's Stable
Description: 

It takes Gavin Stevens and Hub "only thirty minutes" to find the body buried but "scarcely covered from sight" in "a shallow and hurried trench" underneath "the feed room in the stable" on Wesley Pritchel's farm (133). It is Pritchel's body. The man who buried it, Pritchel's son-in-law Joel Flint, intended it to be found eventually, and identified as him, which is why before he buried it he disguised it as Pritchel. Obviously there is no epitaph, but also inside the grave is the "big ledger" that Flint buries along with the corpse telling the story of his own past as "SIGNOR CANOVA|Master of Illusion" (134); digging through that text, Stevens uncovers the truth.

Occupant: Wesley Pritchel.
