Summary: 

The narrator, the sheriff, and Stevens find Wesley Pritchel's body where Flint buried it after killing and disfiguring him. Buried with the body is a collection of texts: a "ledger" full of "carefully pasted" notices (133) of the circus performances Flint gave as years earlier, as "Signor Canova, Master of Illusion"; the newspaper report of Ellie's murder; and, "scattered" with the other texts, the ads Flint posted in trade papers under his "new changed name" (134).
