Summary
John did not Regain his Senses, and soon after sunrise he stopped breathing. Agnes arose and looked vainly around the bare room, and peered out of the window and door.... She lit the candle the priest had sold her and recited the Placebo as best she could. But the words of the prayer, which she had known well since she was twelve, kept slipping from her mind. As she washed John's body, she was shocked to see that much of his skin was now blotched and blackened, and that there were a number of swellings as well as the carbuncle in his groin. She folded him into a clean sheet, just as she had her former husband after his death. Then she fetched some sticks of wood that she washed and dried, and placed them at the edge of the embers in the hearth and waited till the ends blackened and burned to ash. Taking them up, she allowed them to cool, and then carefully traced a cross on the shroud, and smoothed and shaped it with her fingers
