           The next morning, Jeremiah is in the living room of the
        Old House, agonizing over how to tell Barnabas abotu what
        has happened, "How can I go to Barnabas?  How could I tell
        him?  But he should know that she isn't as innocent as she
        seems!  She came to my room last night and said she wanted
        me!"  Angelique comes down the stairs into the living room
        and, hearing Jeremiah talking to himself, asks, "I be your
        pardon, Sir?  Are you all right?"  Jeremiah answers, "I'm
        perfectly all right, Angelique.  How is Josette?"  Angelique
        tells him, "Quite well, Sir".  Jeremiah asks, "Is she happy
        here?  Does the climate agree with her?  Last night, she
        seemed to be acting somewhat strangely to me".  Angelique
        replies, "She seems normal to me.  She's exactly as she was at
        home".  Jeremiah remarks, "I see".  He excuses Angelique and
        she leaves.  Jeremiah thinks to himself, "Then she has fooled
        him completely from the beginning!  I must tell him now!".
           Barnabas is in a room with Ben Stokes, teaching him how to
        write.  Ben is sitting at a small desk writing something with a
        quill pen.  Barnabas tells him, "Your p's look like q's".
        Ben grumbles, "I don't know why they put them one after the other.
        It makes it so difficult!".  Barnabas assures him, "It'll be
        easy once you learn them".  Ben jokes, "IF I ever learn them!
        I don't think I'll ever need to write a word that has a q
        anyway!".  Jeremiah enters the room and asks to speak to
        Barnabas.  Ben, happy to be given a respite in his writing
        lessons, jokes, "Writing is hard!  I don't know how children
        ever learn to do it!" and leaves.  Barnabas asks, "Yes, Jeremiah,
        is something wrong?"  Jeremiah replies, "It's Josette".  Barnabas
        asks, "Josette?? What's happened to her?  Has she had an accident?"
        Jeremiah quickly replies, "No!".  Barnabas remarks, "You frightened
        me!".  Jeremiah asks, "You love her very much, don't you?"
        Barnabas replies, "Yes. She is very beautiful.  But it isn't
        only the way she looks.  Have you ever listened to her speak?
        There is such respect in her.  There's only one question I
        have about her.  Why she chose me".  Jeremiah remarks, "Perhaps
        you don't know Josette as well as you think you do".  Barnabas
        asks, "Don't you like Josette?"  Jeremiah replies, "Yes, very
        much".  Barnabas asks, "And does she like you?"  Jeremiah pauses,
        then says, "Yes".  Barnabas, looking relieved, says, "Good.  I
        very much wanted you two to be friends.  At first, I was afraid
        she might be jealous of the influence you have over me.  But
        she does not know what a friend you've been to me.  But she
        will.  Aren't I lucky, Jeremiah?"  Jeremiah replies, "Yes".
        Barnabas continues, "I trust her, and she trusts me.  No one
        will ever come between the two of us".  Jeremiah mutters,
        "And no one will!  Not if I can help it!".
           Ben is in Angelique's room. Seeing that nothing has happened,
        Angelique grumbles, "I'm certain that Jeremiah hasn't told
        Barnabas!" Ben asks, "Do you want him to?" Angelique replies,
        "There's no point in having Josette going to Jeremiah's room if
        he doesn't tell Barnabas about it!"  Ben explains, "He's not like
        that".  Angelique asks, "Jeremiah usually goes to bed very early,
        doesn't he?" Ben replies, "Yes, he works a hard day".  Angelique asks,
        "And you usually take a toddy to him before he goes to bed, don't
        you?" Ben replies, "Aye. Sometimes, he has one downstairs with Mr.
        Barnabas".  Angelique announces, "Tonight you will make certain he
        drinks a very special toddy.  I will give you something to put in
        it."   Ben protests, "I can't! If I'm caught, they'll send me back
        to prison!", but Angelique tells him, "You must!  Do you remember
        what happened to you last time you disobeyed me?" Ben says, "I
        couldn't talk".  Angelique warns him, "The next time you disobey me,
        it'll be much worse".  Ben protests, "I can't hurt Jeremiah!"
        Angelique replies, "You won't be hurting him.  Most gentlemen men
        enjoy falling in love.  I felt sorry for Josette last night.  Now
        she knows what it feels like to love someone who does not love you.
        I'll give you the drugs to put in his drink tonight. Don't be afraid,
        Ben. You have only one person to be afraid of".  Ben remarks, "Aye,
        and that's YOU!"
           Josette comes in through the front doors. Jeremiah is there.
        Josette sees him and tries to "flee", but Jeremiah says, "Please,
        wait!" Josette exclaims, "I can't talk to you!" Jeremiah insists,
        "You must!".  Josette tells him,  "I couldn't sleep all night! I
        got up at dawn and I've been walking in the forest ever since. I've
        never done anything like that before!" Jeremiah tells her, "I hope
        not. I went to Barnabas this morning to tell him, but I couldn't."
        Josette says, "I don't understand it. I love Barnabas".  Jeremiah
        tells her, "Then you must be true to him".  Josette insists, "I am
        true to him".  Jeremiah asks, "Then you have no explanation for
        what happened last night?"  Josette replies, "No." Jeremiah tells
        her, "You must not hurt Barnabas".  Josette replies, "I'd kill
        myself before I did that!"
           Later, Josette comes downstairs. Natalie is in the living room.
        Natalie asks, "Where have you been?" Josette replies, "In my room".
        Natalie tells her, "Mrs. Collins was very upset you missed lunch.
        These Northerners know nothing about preparing fish. They don't use
        wine. Mrs. Collins says it's against her cook's religion. But the
        fact that the food is inedible is no excuse for you to miss lunch".
        Josette asks, "Aunt Natalie, you must do me a favor".  Natalie asks,
        "What can I do for you?" Josette tells her, "I was supposed to go
        into town with Barnabas today about some cabinetwork we've ordered.
        Can you go for me?" Natalie asks, "Why?" Josette replies, "I just
        don't feel like it." Natalie tells her, "But you'll have to live with
        that cabinetwork for the rest of your life", but Josette just says,
        "I'm sure if you like it, I sure I'll like it".  Natalie asks, "Are
        you getting afraid?" Josette asks, "Of what?" Natalie replies, "Of
        getting married. Of the new family. I'd be afraid. All brides are.
        Five minutes with Mr. Joshua Collins would be enough to make me get
        back in the carriage and leave immediately".  Josette remarks, "He's
        not that bad".  Natalie remarks,  "Jeremiah is a very nice man,
        though. And quite handsome, too, don't you think so?" Josette
        exclaims, "No!"  Natalie remarks, "He is.  You just don't notice
        it because you have eyes only for Barnabas.  Barnabas comes down
        into the room and jokes, "Josette DuPres!  I haven't seen you all
        day! Is this any indication of the kind of life we're going to lead
        after we're married?" Josette runs upstairs, upset.  Barnabas asks,
        "What's wrong?" Natalie replies,  "She's just nervous. All brides
        are. Leave her alone".  Barnabas begs, "Go to her, talk to her!",
        but Natalie replies, "I would. If only I knew what to say..."
           Natalie and Barnabas are in the living room. Barnabas, worried,
        wonders out loud, "Why didn't she come down to dinner?" Jeremiah
        comes into the room. Natalie tells him, "Ah, Jeremiah. I was trying
        to amuse Barnabas, with no success."
           In the hallway behind the door to the left of the fireplace,
        Angelique intercepts Ben, who's carrying a tray bearing the makings
        for hot toddy. She gives him a vial and tells him, "Here it it.
        Just put it in his drink".
           Ben comes into the living room with the tray and announces, "Your
        toddy, Mr. Jeremiah".  Jeremiah replies,  "Thank you. Don't make it
        so strong tonight". Ben puts the tray on a table and makes the
        toddy, putting Angelique's drug in, unobserved. He gives the toddy
        to Jeremiah. After Jeremiah drinks it, Ben asks, "Another one?".
        Jeremiah replies, "No, one's fine, Ben". Ben takes the tray and
        leaves.  Jeremiah excuses himself, saying he'd like to go out for
        a breath of fresh air.  Barnabas thanks Natalie for trying to cheer
        him up and tells her, "If I loved Josette for no other reason, it
        would be because you are her aunt" and excuses himself to go up to
        bed.  The clock on the mantel strikes 10:00.
           Natalie is toying around with her Tarot cards. The clock on
        the mantel strikes 11:00. Natalie is surprised to see Josette
        come down the stairs and calls out, "Josette?" Josette replies,
        "I couldn't sleep." Natalie remarks, "Come. Let's have some herbal
        tea", but Josette replies,  "No, I want to go out for a walk".
        Natalie asks, "Should you?" Josette replies, "I'm not a child,
        Natalie!" and goes out the front door.  Looking concerned, Natalie
        puts on her cape and goes out too.
           Jeremiah is in the gazebo. Josette comes. Jeremiah exclaims,
        "You've come!" Josette replies,  "I had no choice".  Jeremiah
        remarks, "Neither did I. I came here not knowing why, then I knew
        it was to wait for you".  Josette asks, "What's happening to us?"
        Jeremiah replies, "I don't know, I just know that I love you".
        Josette tells him, "That's all I want to hear". They kiss. From
        behind some bushes, Natalie watches, a look of shock on her face.

           It is the next morning. Natalie is pacing around nervously
        in the gazebo. Andre DuPres comes.  He tells Natalie, "I got you
        message asking me to come here. I wish you hadn't sent that
        convict." Natalie explians, "There wasn't anyone else." Andre
        grumbles, "I hope you know I had to give up my morning ride to
        see you".  Natalie tells him, "When you hear what I have to say,
        you'll be glad you didn't go riding. Andre, we are in the midst
        of a force of evil! There is someone in the Collins house, someone
        evil, someone who wants to prevent the marriage of Josette and
        Barnabas!"  Andre asks, "Natalie, the Collins family has everything
        to gain from this marriage. Why would one of them want to prevent
        it?"  Natalie replies, "I didn't say it was one of the Collinses.
        I said it was someone in the house".  Andre asks, "Who?" Natalie
        replies, "I don't know yet".  Andre remarks, "Your Tarot cards
        weren't specific enough, were they?" Natalie tells him, "I didn't
        get the information from the Tarot Cards".  Andre asks, "Where did
        you get it?" She tells him, "I was witness to something last night"
        and recounts what she saw in the gazebo last night. Andre is
        shocked and exclaims, "I don't believe it! The very thought of
        it is absurd!" Natalie insists, "I saw it".  Andre suggests, "It
        was dark. You probably didn't see clearly", but Natalie tells him,
        "I did. There was a full moon. I saw it clearly".  Andre remarks,
        "It just doesn't make any sense. She just met him a few days ago".
        Natalie says, "I don't think she knows what she's doing. She had
        been acting very strange all day, as if she had been placed in a
        trance of some sort".  Andre exclaims, "You don't seriously believe
        in this mumbo jumbo of yours!" Natalie replies, "There's no
        other explanation that makes any sense".  Andre remarks,  "That one
        doesn't make any sense either."  Natalie says, "It's not like Josette
        to behave like this. I tell you, someone doesn't want the marriage
        to take place!" Andre asks, "Who?" Natalie replies, "That's what
        I intend to find out!" Andre vows, "I'll make sure what happened
        last night never happens again!"
           At the old house, Naomi asks Jeremiah, "Why didn't you go
        to work today?"  Jeremiah replies, "I didn't feel well when I
        got up. I'm all right now". Naomi observes, "You seem disturbed.
        Do you want to talk about it?", but Jeremiah replies, "It's not
        a problem that can be talked about. It's something I've got to work
        out myself".  Andre DuPres comes in and asks, "Mr. Collins, I'd like
        to have a talk with you in private".  Jeremiah says,  "We can go
        into the study", but Natalie says, "No, I'll go upstairs and let
        you talk here" and goes upstairs. Jeremiah asks, "What do you want
        to talk to me about?" Andre replies, "About you and my daughter
        Josette".  Jeremiah asks, "What about us?"  Andre exclaims, "You
        know what I'm referring to!" Jeremiah asks, "How did you find out?"
        Andre replies, "That's beside the point. I want a full explanation
        for what happened last night!"  Jeremiah answers, "I can't give you
        one. There is no explanation. I don't know why it happened. It just
        did".  Andre asks, "Were you expecting her to come? Was the meeting
        pre-arranged?"  Jeremiah replies, "No, that's the strange part".
        Andre says, "You embraced and kissed. Are you telling me that before
        last night, there was nothing between you?" Jeremiah replies, "No.
        Are you going to talk to Josette about this?" Andre answers, "I might
        not. It's up to you. I will not let Josette get involved in a
        scandal. What are you trying to do? Tear the family apart? Will
        you give me your word this will never happen again?" Jeremiah replies,
        "I'll do better! I'll promise never to be alone with Josette again!"
           Natalie, outside the door of the old house, thinks to herself,
        "Josette DOES love Barnabas. Yet last night, she said she loved
        someone she hardly knows.  Why?  Because someone wants to tear
        Josette away from Barnabas.  But who?  That's what I have to find
        out before it's too late!"
           She goes inside and finds Naomi standing in the living room
        holding her deck of Tarot cards and remarks, "Ah, you've found my
        Tarot cards.  I've been looking all over for them".  Naomi remarks,
        "You left them on the mantel".  Natalie offers to show Naomi how
        they work. She deals them out onto the a table.  Naomi asks, "Does
        each card have a different meaning?"  Natalie explains, "No, the
        meaning of each card is related to the card it's near".  Natalie
        looks at the cards and suddenly gasps, "Maybe we should do this some
        other time".  Naomi asks, "What's wrong?"  Natalie gasps, "I never
        thought it could be this bad!"  Naomi asks, "What?"  Natalie replies,
        "I'm afraid my interpretion of the cards won't please you".  Naomi
        presses her to tell her what they say. Finally, Natalie explains,
        "This card is the lovers. It is a very strong card. But it is
        inverted. This is the symbol of seperation. Next to it is the death
        card. It symbolizes the end of the love between two people. And this
        card is the chariot, a very powerful symbol. It indicates that there
        will be a betrayal!" Naomi asks, "What kind of betrayal?", but
        Natalie refuses to go on.  Naomi asks, "What else do you see?"
        Natalie replies, "Mrs. Collins, there is a force of evil in this
        house, someone who's trying to destroy the natural order of things!"
        Naomi says, "There's no one evil in this house!", but Natalie insists,
        "The cards say there is".  Naomi remarks, "The cards are very
        interesting. Quite entertaining. In this case, I don't think what
        they say is true".  Natalie asks,  "Mrs. Collins, tell me about your
        governess. I understand she came to you under strange circumstances".
        Naomi exclaims, "Well now, you couldn't suspect her!"  Natalie
        replies, "I don't suspect anyone. I was just curious about her".
        Naomi tells Natalie about Vicky's arrival, and the "strange,
        immodest" clothing she was wearing at the time. She asks Natalie
        "Are you suggesting there's someting wrong with Miss Winters?"
        Natalie replies, "I'm not suggesting anything".  Naomi asks, "Then
        why ask about her?" Natalie tells her, "The cards say there will
        soon be a disaster here".  Naomi asks, "And you think this disaster
        will be caused by Miss Winters?"  Natalie replies, "No, but I think
        it's worth thinking about".
          Naomi is in bed sleeping. She has a dream. In it, Natalie's
        voice awakens her, saying, "Mrs. Collins! Mrs. Collins!" A vision
        of the inverted Lovers card appears floating in the air. The voice
        continues, "The cards never lie! The card of the lovers is inverted,
        the symbol of separation!" The card of the lovers disappears and
        is replaced by the card of death. The voice continues, "The death
        card, the symbol of the end of the love between two people!"
        The chariot card replaces the death card. The voice continues,
        "The chariot, a very powerful card. It is the sign of a betrayal!"
        Naomi gets up. The voice tells her, "Follow the card, Mrs. Collins,
        follow the chariot and see who will be betrayed!" The card floats
        over to the door. Naomi goes to the door and opens it. She sees
        Jeremiah walking down the hall. She calls out, "Jeremiah!", but
        he doesn't seem to hear her and just keeps walking. She calls out,
        "Where are you going so late? Why aren't you sleeping?", but he
        doesn't seem to hear and keeps walking. Naomi follows. Jeremiah goes
        downstairs into the living room. There, he meets a woman, embraces
        her, and kisses her. Naomi comes down and sees this. Naomi calls
        out loudly, "Jeremiah, who is that woman? Why don't you answer me?",
        but Jeremiah doesn't seem to hear her.  The ghostly voice then tell
        her, "Wait, Mrs. Collins, and you will find out who will betray".
        Naomi looks and sees a symbol written on the woman's hand.
        The voice explains, "That is the sign of the devil. The woman
        is possessed by the devil. She will bring death and destruction
        into this house".  Naomi demands, "Jeremiah, who is that woman?"
        Jeremiah replies, "Naomi, go back to your room!", but Naomi is
        insistent,  "NO! Who is that woman?" She grabs the woman's
        arm and tries to seperate them, but to her shock, the arm
        comes off, bloody at the stump. She screams...

           It is the next morning. Naomi is pacing around nervously in
        the living room. Angelique comes into the room. Naomi gives a
        start.  Angelique apologizes, "Excuse me if I startled you. The
        countess left her fan here last night." She looks around for it.
        She asks Naomi, "Is something wrong?"  Naomi replies, "No".
        Angelique continues to look for the fan and finds it, "Here it
        is!"  She shows the pictures on it to Naomi and remarks, "It's a
        particular favorite of hers. The characters are from the Tarot 
        Cards". This disturbs Naomi, who asks Angelique to put the fan 
        away. She asks, "Angelique, have you seen Jeremiah?" Angelique 
        replies, "I heard him tell Mr. Collins that he would be working 
        at home today. Do you wish me to tell him you want to see him?" 
        Naomi answers, "Yes". Angelique thinks to herself, "So, she's 
        going to talk to Jeremiah about the dream. I've started it,
        and now no one can stop it, even myself, even if I wanted to!"
           Naomi is in Jeremiah's room. She tells him about the dream,
        except for the part where the arm comes off.
           Nathan Forbes, Josette and Millicent are in the living room. 
        Nathan remarks, "Oh, how I envy Barnabas!" Josette introduces 
        Nathan, who's apparently just come, to Millicent. Millicent
        gushes, "I've never met a sailor before!" She tells him she
        gets seasick easily. Nathan does not appear to take a liking
        to Millicent. Naomi comes into the room.  Nathan tells her, "I've 
        brought the specifications to go over with Jeremiah". Naomi tell 
        him where Jeremiah is, and Nathan goes to see him.  Millicent 
        gushes, "The lieutenant is very handsome!" Josette offers Naomi 
        tea.  Naomi accepts, remarking that they haven't had tea since 
        the revolution, Joshua considering it English and therefore
        objectionable. As Josette pours a cup for Naomi, Naome notices
        the pitchfork mark on her hand and gasps, "You! It's you!"
        Millicent asks Josette, "What is that on your hand?" Josette
        replies, "I don't know. I've never seen it before" Naomi abruptly
        says, "Excuse me, I don't feel well" and leaves.
           Jeremiah and Nathan are in a study looking at some ship plans. 
        Jeremiah says, "If that's the way the navy wants the keel, then
        that's the way it'll be". Nathan asks about Vicky. Jeremiah jokes, 
        "Would you take Millicent Collins as a substitute?"  Nathan replies,
        "No, she gets seasick".  Jeremiah remarks, "She can afford to. She 
        owns much property in New York".  Nathan, suddenly looking very
        interested, asks, "She owns it herself?"  Jeremiah replies, "Yes.
        Both her parents are dead". Naomi comes into the room looking
        very agitated. Having concluded business, Nathan leaves to let
        them speak in private.  Naomi exclaims, "I saw the same pitchfork
        I saw in my dream! On Josette's hand!"  Jeremiah replies, "It
        must've just been a bruise, just a coincidence", but Naomi insists,
        "Dreams mean something, you know! The countess says so!"  Jeremiah
        begs, "You must not tell anyone! It would be very embarassing for
        Barnabas if he knew about the dream!"  Naomi agrees, "You're right.
        I must not mention this to anyone!"
           In her room, Josette goes to a washbasin and tries to wash the
        mark off, with no success. Angelique comes in and asks, "Is
        something wrong?"  Josette explains, "This mark on my hand, it
        just appeared, and it won't come off".  Angelique looks and says,
        "I had something like that. A crescent, mine was. I got it the first
        day we came here".  Josette remarks, "But yours is gone".  Angelique
        tells her, "I hope you don't mind, but I used some of this",
        pointing to a bottle.  Josette says, "My rosewater!"  Angelique
        asks,  "Shall I try some on your hand?" Josette replies, "Please do".
        Angelique moistens a handkerchief with the rosewater and proceeds
        to run the mark on Josette's hand with it. As she is doing this,
        Josette remarks, "It upset Mrs. Collins as much as it did me. I'm
        afraid it's some kind of disease. Nothing must happen now that the
        wedding is so near! Nothing!" Angelique announces "There!" and shows
        Josette that the mark is gone.  Josette exclaims, "Angelique! What
        would I do without you?" Angelique replies, "Don't worry. I'll never
        let you find out..."
           Nathan and Millicent run into each other in the foyer.  Millicent
        is dressed to go out. Nathan remarks, "I see you're going out" and
        jokes around with her for awhile. He then says, "You are very
        attractive".  Millicent exclaims, "You are very forward, sir!"
        Nathan remarks, "Forward? Such an old fashioned word! I must show
        you a whole new world!" Jeremiah comes into the foyer and says to
        Nathan, "Let's go!". While he goes to get his coat, Nathan says to
        Millicent, "You must decide! Do you want to see me again?" Millicent
        nods. Jeremiah returns with his coat. Millicent asks him to do her a
        favor. She tells him she needs to get some cough syrup for her
        brother and asks him to pick some up at the apothecary's while he's
        in town. He agrees to do so. He reaches out to take her prescription.
        As he is doing so, Millicent sees a pitchfork shaped mark on his
        hand and exclaims, "The same mark Josette had on her hand!", but
        Jeremiah says, "No, it's just a bruise. I got it while tending the
        fire in my room".  Nevertheless, he looks at the mark uneasily...
           Josette is in her room, smiling strangely. She puts some
        perfume on. There's a knock at the door.  She asks, "Who is it?"
        The knocking continues. She opens it and finds that it's Jeremiah.
        He asks, "Are you alone?" Josette replies, "Yes".  Jeremiah tells
        her, "I promised that I would never be alone with you again.."
        Josette interrupts, "That's foolish of you. Why?" Jeremiah explains,
        "Because I must, and I will after this one time. I had to see you, 
        to show you this!" He shows her the mark on his hand. He tells her,
        "Millicent told me you had one on your hand just like it".  Josette
        says, "It's fate, telling us not to hide what we feel!" Jeremiah
        exclaims, "No!! You love Barnabas!" Josette replies, "I know who I
        love!" Jeremiah insists, "You love him still!" Josette says, "I'm so
        confused." Jeremiah asks, "What am I going to do?  Yours has
        disappeared. How?"  Josette picks up her bottle of rosewater and 
        explains, "Angelique used this."  She moistens a handkerchief
        in it and starts to rub the mark on Jeremiah's hand. Jeremiah says,
        "It has to come off! Naomi had a dream last night. It's the sign of
        the lovers!" Josette continues to rub at the mark. Jeremiah continues
        to say, "It must come off, or everyone will know!" Suddenly, he grabs
        her hand and says, "So soft!" They kiss passionately, but Jeremiah
        pulls away and says, "No!! Why is this happening to us?" Josette
        smiles and replies, "I don't care!  I'm in your arms. I don't want
        to be in anyone elses, ever! Let everyone in the house know! I don't
        care! We must be together!"  Jeremiah starts to say, "Yes...", but
        then says, "No, we cannot!"  Josette begs, "Don't leave me!", but
        Jeremiah says,  "I must! I must leave this room, this house, this 
        town!" Josette begs, "No!", but Jeremiah says,  "I must! Tonight!" 
        and hastens out of the room.

           Angelique is in her room, staring into the fire. She gets a
        vision of the woods...
           In the woods, Ben Stokes is sharpening an ax. He stops and thinks,
        "She's a witch, that Angelique. A man like me can't fight a witch.
        But I've got to! Mr. Barnabas, he's the only friend I've got.
        If only I could find a way to fight her without her knowing about
        it. But she knows everything!" Suddenly, he hears Angelique's
        voice call, "Ben! Ben!" He tries to tell himself, "I'm imagining 
        that. It's all in my mind!", but the voice continues,  "Where are 
        you, Ben? Come to me! I need your help!"  Ben exclaims, "No, I 
        can't..." The voice continues, "Ben!!!!" Ben looks over and sees 
        a ghostly head of Angelique floating in the air. It tells him, "Ben! 
        I need you! Come to my room, now! Don't try to fight me! You know 
        what happened the last time you tried to fight me! Hurry, Ben, 
        hurry!!!!" The head vanishes. Ben hastens off.
           Barnabas and Jeremiah are talking in the living room. Barnabas, 
        puzzled, asks, "A journey? So suddenly? You're not leaving 
        Collinsport tonight, are you?" Jeremiah replies, "Tonight." Barnabas
        asks, "Is this a business trip for father?" Jeremiah replies, "No" 
        Barnabas asks, "Then why go?" Jeremiah replies, "I can't explain. A 
        sudden impulse...." Ben comes in through the front doors. Jeremiah
        tells him, "I'm glad you're here. I need your help. I'm going on a 
        trip and I'm going to take a coach to Collinsport. I need you to 
        take my bags there after I've packed". Ben leaves.  Barnabas asks,
        "Jeremiah, you'll be back in time for the wedding, of course."
        Jeremiah stammers, "I..."  Barnabas insists, "I can't be married 
        without my best man!"  Jeremiah says, "I don't think I'm the right 
        person for best man. Perhaps you should choose someone else."
        Barnabas exclaims, "Jeremiah!" Jeremiah continues, "It's not a role
        I feel well suited for."  Barnabas begs, "You must come back
        for the wedding!"  Jeremiah replies, "All right. I will. I don't
        want to do anything to get in the way of your happiness and
        Josette's.  If come back I must, come back I will".
           Angelique is in her room waiting for Ben, turning the spinning
        wheel to pass the time. Ben comes and chides her, "You plan didn't
        work!" He tells her about Jeremiah packing for a trip.  Angelique
        exclaims, "He's not going away! I must stop him! What am I to do?"
        Ben begs, "Don't hurt Mr. Jeremiah! Don't make him suffer!"
        Angelique replies, "I would if Josette could nurse him, but she
        can't. If only someone could convince him to stay...I know!
        Barnabas!", but Ben tells her, "He's already spoken to him about
        it".  Angelique tells Ben it would be useful for Barnabas to speak
        to Jeremiah again, then wonders how to get him to do so, then gets
        an idea, "If Josette told him to talk to him..." She laughs evilly
        and continues, "Perfect! Using her fiance to keep her lover here!"
        She takes the doll of Josette with the spiderweb out, looks at it,
        and announces, "She's still under the spell!" She takes the doll
        over to the fireplaces and talks to it, "Look at your hand, Josette.
        The mark of the pitchfork is still there, the mark you and Jeremiah
        share. He's leaving you, Josette, he's leaving you forever! Only
        Barnabas can stop him! Go to Barnabas, make Barnabas stop Jeremiah!
        If you don't, you will never see your lover again! Go to Barnabas,
        Josette!"
           Barnabas is at the desk in the living room, writing something.
        Josette comes into the room. She tells him, "Oh, good. I thought
        you'd gone. I was afraid you'd left for the yards".  Barnabas replies,
        "I was about to".  Josette starts to say, "No, you can't before...",
        but Barnabas notices the pitchfork mark, which has just appeared on
        Josette's hand again, and exclaims, "Josette!"  Josette replies, "It's
        nothing, just a bruise, that's all. I did not come to you about this.
        It's Jeremiah. He mustn't go! You must stop him!" Barnabas replies, "I
        have already tried. I couldn't. He promised he would be back for the 
        wedding".  Josette says, "He won't be back" Barnabas asks, "Why do 
        you say that?" Josette replies, "I know. I know why Jeremiah's going 
        away. I am the reason."  Barnabas asks, "You? How could you be the 
        reason?"  Josette replies, "I have to tell you.  I don't want to, 
        but I must. Jeremiah hates me!"  Barnabas exclaims, "Jeremiah?!"
        Josette continues, "He does. He despises me. He does not think I 
        will make you a good wife."  Barnabas protests, "No, he told me the
        other morning how much he likes you. Everyone here loves you, 
        Josette".  Josette begs, "Hold me, Barnabas, and don't let me go!" 
        Barnabas holds her and tells her, "Josette, my darling, my darling, 
        you know how much I love you. I'll go to Jeremiah and tell him how 
        important it is to you he stays", but Josette suddenly seems to
        change her mind and tells Barnabas, "No, let Jeremiah go. Let him
        go! It's for the best!" Barnabas exclaims, "Josette! Your hands are
        so cold! Are you sure you're feeling well?" Josette replies, "I'm
        sure".  Barnabas looks at Josette's hand and exclaims, "Josette,
        the bruise! It's gone!" Josette looks at her hand and says, "Yes,
        it's gone! I'm so glad! Let Jeremiah go wherever he wants to go!
        I don't care how he feels about me, only how you feel. You are the
        man I love!"
           Ben is taking Jeremiah's luggage out. Angelique comes into the
        foyer, sees him, and asks, "Didn't Barnabas stop Jeremiah from
        leaving? Josette went to speak to him, didn't she?" Ben laughs and
        chides her, "I guess you didn't put enough magic into that spell! I
        saw Josette and Barnabas together. They were happy! They're riding
        into town together! Want to know the names of the horses they went
        on?" They argue. Joshua comes into the room and asks Angelique, "Is
        he bothering you?" He turns to Ben and demands, "What did you say to
        her?" Ben remains silent. Joshua asks, "What's the matter? Cat got
        your tongue?" Ben says, "I didn't say nothing!"  Joshua demands, "I
        expect the truth from you, now! Did you say something to her,
        something improper?" Angelique lies, "Yes it was!"  Joshua tells
        Ben, "You should be punished!" Ben retorts, "Working in this house
        is punishment enough! It's worse than being in prison!" Joshua
        tells Ben, "You will be working in this house until you work off
        your sentence".  He turns to Angelique and tells her, "You know his
        past. Stay away from him". and asks her what she's doing. She
        replies, "Gathering wild parsley for a tea for my mistress". Joshua
        caustically remarks, "You French! I suppose tea leaves are not good
        enough for you!"
           After Joshua leaves,  Ben complains to Angelique, "Look what you
        did now! No one can stop him once he's riled up!" This gives
        Angelique an idea.  She asks, "What if someone did stop him? What if
        something happened to him?" Ben replies, "Jeremiah wouldn't be able 
        to leave on his trip. He'd have to stay to take care of the work".
        Angelique says, "Thank you, Ben!"  Ben asks, "What are you going to 
        do?"  Angelique replies, "I don't know yet".  Ben gleefully says,
        "Something as mean and nasty as he is to me!"  Angelique promsises,
        "All right, Ben, what I do to him will be a present to you!" They 
        go upstairs.                          
           Joshua and Jeremiah are in the study. Joshua complains, "You
        are not a child!" He argues with Jeremiah about his leaving
        with all the work to be done.
           In Angelique's room, Angelique asks, "What shall I do to Joshua
        Collins, Ben?"  Ben gleefully replies, "I know what I'd do!"
        Angelique, holding a piece of soft clay, remarks,"Whatever I mold
        from this piece of clay is whatever he'll become".  Ben says, "Make
        him a snake, or a spider!"  Angelique protests, "But those can be
        poisonous".  Ben, revenge in his eyes, says, "A jackass, then! With
        that jackass, I'd clear out the north field, that jackass and me,
        him pulling and me beating him!"  Angelique says, "Quiet, Ben, while
        I'm working" starts to mold the clay.
           Downstairs, Joshua and Jeremiah continue to argue about
        Jeremiah's planned trip. Joshua brings up another reason he
        thinks Jeremiah shouldn't leave, "And Millicent? This may be
        your last chance for her!", but Jeremiah just says,  "Good bye".
        Joshua asks, "What if someting should happen to me?" Jeremiah
        replies, "I'll send you my address so I can be contacted" and turns
        to leave. He hears a loud "swooshing" noise and turns back and
        is surprised to see that Joshua is gone from the room. He calls out,
        "Joshua? Joshua?", but receives no answer. There is no one in the
        room except a black cat with a white chest sitting on a table.
           In Angelique's room, Angelique holds the lump of clay, now
        molded into the form of a cat.  She smiles, turns to Ben and
        says, "There, Ben, there is your master!".

          Natalie is pacing around the living room looking pensive.  Vicky
        comes downstairs. Natalie asks her, "How is poor Mrs. Collins?"
        Vicky replies, "She still won't see anyone. She hopes you understand".
        Natalie caustically remarks, "If I were married to Joshua Collins,
        I'd be inviting everyone for champagne", then says, "Let us take the
        facts about Joshua's disappearance and re-examine them. Let's re-enact
        what happened. You be Jeremiah and I'll be Joshua".  Vicky says, "I
        don't want to". Natalie asks, "Are you afraid?"  Vicky says, "You
        have a reason for this. What is it?", but Natalie refuse to elaborate
        on her reasons. Vicky remarks, "The whole thing is so mysterious".
        Natalie agrees,  "So much is. That cat, for instance. Jeremiah said
        he saw a cat right after Joshua disappeared, but no one else has seen
        it since." She briefly goes over what happened, then they start to
        renact the scene. Natalie, playing the part of Joshua, caustically
        remarks, "I think I can make the type of pompous comments Joshua
        would have made", then proceeds, "But Jeremiah, you can't leave..."
        Vicky says, "This is absurd!", but Natalie says,  "If I am right,
        that cat will come into this room again!" They continue to renact the
        scene, up to the point where Jeremiah turns around and finds Joshua
        gone.  Natalie is shocked to see that the cat HAS come into the room.
        Vicky approaches the cat, but Natalie warns, "Don't touch that cat!
        The cards are right! Why did I ever doubt them? There is evil in this
        house!" Barnabas comes in through the front door. Natalie asks, "What
        happened?" Barnabas replies, "We found no trace of him, not even any
        footsteps in the mud". Seeing the cat, he exclaims, "A cat! Is that
        the cat Jeremiah saw?"  Natalie replies, "Yes. It just came back".
        Natalie tells Vicky he'd like to talk to Barnabas in private. Vicky
        leaves. Natalie asks Barnabas, "Have you ever seen that cat before?"
        Barnabas replies, "No. Aunt Abigail dislikes cats, she calls them
        the Devil's pet".  Natalie announces, "Your father did not disappear.
        He was taken from us - by a witch!  Barnabas, you will not find your
        father, not in the shipyards, not in the village! The reason I know
        that is because the cat is the Devil's pet, a sort of joke after
        the fact!"  Nathan comes in through the front doors and announces,
        "They've found some footprints on Widow's Hill. They need your
        father's boots to see if they're the right size".  Barnabas tells
        Nathan, "They're in the study. You know where they are. Get them".
        Natalie continues, "I even know why your father disappeared. Someone
        in this house does not want Jeremiah to leave." Barnabas asks, "Why?"
        Natalie replies, "I don't know, but there IS a witch in this house.
        Tell me, Barnabas, do you have trust in this Victoria Winters..."
        Nathan, who has not left yet, hears this.
           Nathan goes into the study and gets Joshua's boots. Vicky
        comes into the room and tells him, "Mr. Collins asked if you'd
        wait here. He'll be coming to talk to you in a minute." She
        turns to leave, but Nathan says, "Don't go!!", grabs her and
        tries to seduce her. Vicky angrily tell him, "Mister Forbes, you
        have no taste!"  Nathan asks, "What are you talking about?" Vicky
        replies, "When I came into this room, I was worried about thinking
        of an explanation to tell Sarah about her father's disappearance,
        and you think I'm thinking of nothing but jumping into your arms!"
        Nathan, angry at her rejection, tells her, "You may need friends.
        You may need every friend you can get. Barnabas suspects you of being
        a witch! He thinks you may have had somethilng to do with Mr. Collins'
        disapperance!" Vicky, shocked, asks, "Are you making this all up?"
        Nathan assures her that he isn't, "I have one fault - women. but I'm
        not a liar!"
           Natalie is in a study looking over the Tarot cards. The clock
        strikes 8:00. Vicky comes into the room. Seeing Natalie, she
        appoligizes, "Sorry. I thought the men had returned. I thought
        I heard them in this room".  Natalie replies,  "No, they're still
        out at Widow's Hill".  Vicky thinks to herself, "Widow's Hill, where
        Josette will die..." Natalie continues, "They won't find him. The
        cards say that".  Vicky turns to leave, but Natalie tells her,
        "Stay. I want to know about you".  Vicky remarks, "Well, there
        isn't very much to tell", but Natalie says,  "There may be a lot,
        if you're willing to tell it. Where were you born?"  Vicky replies,
        "Boston".  Natalie remarks, "Boston, the Athens of America, I believe
        it's called", then asks, "Do you believe in astrology?"  Vicky replies,
        "I don't know. I always believed that a person was charge of his own
        destiny".  Natalie notes,  "Believed. You use the past tense. You
        don't believe this anymore?"  Vicky replies, "No".  Natalie asks,
       "When were you born?"  Vicky starts to say, "March 4, 19...".
        Natalie interrupts, "19??  Do you mean 1719? You'd be 76 years old!"
        Vicky replies, "No, I'm only 22 years old".  Natalie remarks, "That
        means you were born in 1774".  Vicky corrects her, "1773".  Natalie
        continues, "I would like to chart your horoscope. What hour were you
        born?" Vicky replies, "I don't know. No one's ever told me".  The
        Countess notes, "This conversation seems to make you nervous. Why?"
        Vicky replies, "The supernatural always frightens me. I don't know
        much about the supernatural".  Natalie asks, "What about your
        clairvoyance?" Vicky protests, "I'm not clairvoyant." Natalie says,
        "Barnabas says you are".  Vicky replies,  "That's his joke. Are you
        accusing me of something? All these questions, why are you asking
        them?" Natalie explains, "I ask them because something is happening
        here, something that will lead to tragedy. I can't do anything about
        it unless I know what it is..."  Hearing the front door, Natalie says,
        "They're back!" and leaves. Vicky thinks to herself, "If only I could
        tell her, she could do something about it. But I can't tell her
        Josette will marry Jeremiah." She looks at the tarot cards and gets
        an idea, "Now, she said the  Princess card represented Josette. Which
        one represents Jeremiah? The magician? No, she said that represented
        Barnabas. Now I remember! The knight!" She rearranges the cards so
        that the Knight and the Princess are upside down and next to one
        another and leaves. She does not notice that the death card is next
        to the Knight card...
           In the living room, Natalie tells Barnabas, "Try to get some
        sleep." She tells him a brandy will help him sleep. Barnabas asks
        Vicky, who's now come out of the study, if she'd like some. Vicky
        declines, but confidently tells Barnabas, "Mr. Collins, your father
        will be all right". Barnabas thanks her for reassuring him, saying,
        "The way you say that, I believe it.  Thank you".  Natalie and
        Barnabas leave. Vicky starts to snuff out the candles.
           Natalie and Barnabas go to the study. There, Natalie pours
        two glasses of brandy, remarking, "I have to admit I already
        had one while you were gone".  Barnabas remarks, "I was thinking
        about what you said about witchraft".  Natalie asks, "Do you accept
        it?" Barnabas replies, "No, but I don't think I can totally dismiss
        the possibility."  Natalie tells him, "I won't discuss that now.
        There's nothing else for me say on the subject." Suddenly, she
        exclaims, "Who's been in this room??" Barnabas asks, "What's wrong?"
        Natalie exclaims, "The cards! Someone has changed the cards!"
        Barnabas asks, "What do they say?"  Natalie contines, "No! I was
        reading them to see if they said anything about your father, then
        you returned and Vicky and I left the room."  Barnabas asks, "What
        do they say now?"  Natalie announces, "You must marry Josette!"
        Barnabas replies, "I intend to do that", but Natalie says, "Tomorrow!"
        Barnabas asks, "What?" Natalie tells him, "Unless you marry her
        tomorrow, you never will! I know what the future is now!" Barnabas
        asks, "What? Tell me!", but Natalie just says, "I've told you all I
        can. Do you love Josette?" Barnabas replies, "Yes".  Natalie asks
        him, "If she agrees to marry you immediately, will you agree?"
        Barnabas replies, "Yes".  Natalie says, "Then in 24 hours, you
        will be man and wife!"

           Angelique is in Josette's room, helping Josette to dress. There's
        a knock at the door. It's Andre and Natalie. Natalie tells Josette,
        "We must speak. It's most urgent".  Josette protests, "But I was
        going to go riding with Barnabas".  Andre tells her, "We must speak
        now, Josette."  Angelique says, "I'll go tell Mr. Collins" and turns
        to leave, but Natalie tells her, "No, stay. There is much you will
        have to do".  Josette asks, "What is it?"  Natalie tells her,
        "Josette, you must marry Barnabas tonight!" Josette, puzzled, asks,
        "Tonight? I don't understand!"  Natalie replies, "You don't need to
        understand. It's imperative that the marriage ceremony be peformed
        tonight, before it's to late!!"  Josette asks, "Before it's too late?
        Too late for what?"  Natalie replies, "For you and Barnabas".
        Josette asks, "What do you mean?"  Natalie replies, "Because
        someone in this house is convinced that in time, you will marry
        someone other that Barnabas".  Josette asks, "Who told you that?"
        Natalie replies, "I will answer all your questions after tonight".
        Andre says, "I trust your aunt knows what to do".  Josette exclaims,
        "There's so much to do!"  Natalie assures her, "Angelique and I will
        help".  Josette protests, "But Mr. Collins is still missing!"
        Andre replies, "Yes. How do we explain this to him when he returns?"
        Natalie corrects him, "IF he returns." Andre asks, "You think
        something happened to him?"  Natalie replies, "We must consider the
        possibility".  Andre grumbles, "I regret ever having decided to have
        the wedding in this country! I should have held in is Paris, a
        civilized city!  I'm thinking of taking leave of this house and
        returning to Martenique!" Natalie asks, "You mean you want to cancel
        the wedding?"  Andre replies, "Yes".  Josette exclaims, "No! You
        can't!" Natalie says, "The only thing to do is have it tonight."
        Josette says, "I have to tell Barnabas."  Natelie tells her, "I've
        already talked to him about it half hour ago and he agreed". Josette
        insists she talk to Barnabas about it, saying, "It's a decision we
        should be making together!" Natalie agrees, "All right. I'll arrange
        for him to be in the drawing room in half and hour. Andre, let's
        leave Josette alone now." They leave. Angelique takes the bottle
        containing Josette's rosewater and takes it to Josette, who's sitting
        in a chair looking confused, and says to her, "You look tired, my
        lady.  Let me message your forehead".  Josette declines the offer,
        "No, not now." Angelique tells her, "But the rosewater will
        take away your headache".  Josette replies,  "I don't have a
        headache".  Angelique says,  "Well, it will make you feel less tired",
        but Josette, sounding irritated, says,  "No! I do not want my
        forehead messaged now!", then quickly apoligizes to Angelique for
        snapping at her.  Angelique says, "I just want you to feel more
        comfortable when you see Mr. Collins", but Josette replies,  "Thank
        you, but there's nothing you can do".  Angelique mutters, "I'll
        think of something..."
           Ben is in Angelique's room holding an ax. Joshua the cat is
        sitting on the bed. Ben holds the ax menacingly and tells the
        Joshua he's going to get even with him for all the indignities
        he shown him over the years, saying "All it'll take is one swift
        chop!" and prepares to strike,  but Angelique comes in and stops
        him before he can harm the cat. Ben complains, "He's a cruel man,
        he's not fit to live in any form!"  Angelique promises, "When Mr.
        Collins returns to normal, I'll see to it that he treats you with
        more respect. We have more important things to do right now. I must
        find a new way to put Josette under the spell".  Ben asks, "Why?"
        Angelique explains to him how the marriage has been moved up to
        tonight. Ben laughs and chides her, "So, all your conniving has
        come to naught, eh? You were so sure nothing was going to go wrong!"
        Angelique replies, "And nothing will, as soon as I cast a new
        spell. I want you to go into Jeremiah's room and get something
        of his, something small..." Ben protests, "I can't do that! I'll
        be caught!", but Angelique tells him, "No, Jeremiah's at the
        shipyards. No one will see you. Barnabas and Josette are already
        in the drawing room! We have very little time! Go!"
           Barnabas and Josette are in the drawing room. They talk about
        the change in plans and both agree to it. Barnabas leaves to
        go to Collinsport to get the minister for the wedding, which
        is to be at 9:00.
           Ben returns to Angelique's room with a blue handkerchief.
        Angelique takes it and says, "Yes, that will serve my purposes
        very well. Thank you, Ben!"  Ben asks, "What are you going to do
        with it?" Angelique replies, "Make it into a flower, sprinkle
        it with some of my lady's rose water, let it dry, then pin
        it to Josette's wedding dress and tell her it will bring her
        happiness and good fortune".  Ben says, "You know every trick!"
        Angelique replies, "I know what I want, and I shall have it!" Ben
        caustically remarks, "And everyone else can hang, eh?"  Angelique
        replies, "No, Ben, I only hurt those who have hurt me".  Ben asks,
        "And what has Miss Josette ever done to you?".  Angelique replies,
        "She has the man that I want".  Ben points out, "She loves Barnabas".
        Angelique tells him, "You think the course of true love can't be
        altered. It can be! After tonight, Barnabas will have good reason to
        come to me, because she will belong to another...
           Later, Josette is in her room preparing for her wedding.  Natalie
        is in there helping her with her wedding dress.  Josette remarks,
        "I've never been so nervous in my entire life!" Angelique comes
        into the room.  Natalie tells her, "Angelique, you help Josette
        with her dress while I go fix the veil".  Angelique takes out a blue
        flower made from Jeremiah's handkerchief and tells Josette,  "Oh,
        mademoiselle, this is for you".  Josette asks,  "What is it?"
        Angelique replies, "A surprise. It's an amulet. If you wear it
        during the ceremony, it will bring happiness and good fortune to
        your marriage."  Josette replies, "Thank you , Angelique, but it
        can't wear something like that".  Angelique asks,  "Why not?"
        Josette replies, "Because it would look too conspicious on this
        dress." Angelique begs, "But it will bring you happiness and good
        fortune..."  Josette snaps, "That's nothing but a silly
        superstition!" Angelique starts to cry.  Josette asks, "Oh,
        Angelique, what's the matter?  Why are you crying?" Angelique replies,
        "Because you are angry with me".  Josette assures her, "I'm not angry
        with you".  Angelique says,  "But I have nothing to give you for your
        wedding.  Only something from my feelings, but you HATE it and refuse
        to wear it!"  Josette replies, "Only because it would look too
        conspicuous on the dress".  Angelique says, "If you don't wear it,
        I'll feel like a failure..." Josette, exasperated, turns to her aunt
        and says, "Natalie, talk to her, please!"  Natalie replies, "There's
        not enough time. Why don't you wear it, Josette?  It would make
        Angelique so happy, and it couldn't do any harm. Wear it as a good
        luck charm. What harm could it do?"  Josette turns to Angelique and
        tells her, "Angelique, I will wear the flower".  Angelique beams
        and says, "Thank you, mademoiselle, thank you! You're very kind!"
        and pins the flower onto Josette's dress.
           Downstairs, Minister Alton Brown is discussing the sudden
        change of plans with Barnabas, asking "Something wrong?" Barnabas
        replies, "Not really, just nervous". Angelique comes into the room
        bearing a tray with several bottles of champagne and some champagne
        glasses. The minister asks, "Champagne, before the ceremony?" The
        Countess DuPres replies, "Some people like it after, some people
        like it before. I like it before". Angelique starts to pour the
        champagne. In the room are Andre DuPres,  Natalie DuPres, the
        minister, Barnabas and Angelique. Josette has not come down. Andre
        starts to get impatient and gripes, "It's 9:20 already!" and goes up
        to get Josette. Natalie remarks, "My brother, the most prompt man in
        the world! Promptness is his religion!"
           Upstairs, Andre knocks at the door to Josette's room and calls,
        "Josette! Josette! It's 20 minutes after nine! The minister is
        becoming very impatient!"  There is no answer. Andre calls again,
        "Josette? Josette? Are you there?" Receiving no answer, he opens
        the door and goes inside. He is surprised to find that the room
        is empty. He calls, "Josette? Josette? Where are you?!" then opens
        the foot locker and finds it empty.
           Downstairs, the Countess DuPres is entertaining people with
        stories about her brother's wedding, "It was one of the biggest
        weddings Paris had ever seen! Andre and Marie were married by the
        Arch Bishop.  But that wasn't hard to arrange - Andre's father
        was the King's Minister!"  Suddenly, she is interrupted by Andre's
        voice calling "Josette!  Josette!"  She wonders out loud, "What is
        Andre shouting about?"  Andre comes down and asks, "Did she come
        downstairs?" Natalie replies, "No. What's wrong?"  Andre exclaims,
        "Natalie, I could not find her! She's not in her room! I looked
        everywhere she could be! She is gone!" He goes to the front doors,
        open them, and calls, "Josette! Josette!"  Almost everyone goes to
        the door with him.  Barnabas looks very worried.  Angelique, who has
        stayed behind, picks up a glass of champagne from the tray takes a
        sip and smiles...

          Everyone has gone fron the room but Andre, Angelique and Barnabas.
        Ben comes in through the front doors and announces, "I've just looked
        in the stables. Miss Josette's horse is missing. Mr. Jeremiah's
        horse is gone, too!" Barnabas remarks, "I don't understand any of
        this.  Was Josette afraid of going through with the ceremony?  And
        what's this about Jeremiah's horse being missing too?" Andre
        explains, "I asked Ben to go out and check the stables." He turns
        to leave.  Barnabas asks, "Where are you going?"  Andre replies,
        "Upstairs to see if Jeremiah is still somewhere in the house" and
        goes up the stairs.  Ben remarks, "Mr. Barnabas, I'm really sorry
        about what's happened."  Barnabas asks, "Where's the countess?"
        Angelique replies, "I took her upstairs. She said she wasn't feeling
        well". Barnabas tells Ben and Angelique "You may both go to your
        rooms now. But don't go to bed yet. I may still need you".
        Ben and Angelique leave. Andre comes back down, "Jeremiah's not
        in his room, and all his clothes are gone. So are Josette's"
        Barnabas asks, "Are you implying that Jeremiah has something
        to do with Josette's disapperance?"  Andre replies, "Maybe." Barnabas
        exclaims, "No! It's just a coincidence! I'll arrange for a search!"
        Andre points out, "But if she took her horse, she would be far away
        by now, not in the woods".  Barnabas, grasping at straws, says,
        "Maybe she didn't take it. Maybe someone else did", and turns to go.
        Andre asks, "Where are you going?" Barnabas replies, "To get my
        pistol, then go out to search for her".
           Angelique is in her room. She lies down on the bed, a look of
        satisfaction on her face. Suddenly, she is alarmed to see that
        the doorknob is turning. The door opens... It is Ben. He comes
        in and closes the door.  Angelique complains, "You're supposed to
        knock before you come into a room. Do you have no manners, Ben?"
        Ben contemptuously replies, "None, my lady".  Angelique asks,
        "What are you doing here? I have no need of your now".  Ben tells
        her, "I thought I'd come to congratulate you on your work. You've
        got them all dancing like puppets on strings!"  Angelique replies,
        "I told you, I get what I want!"  Ben continues, "I used to think
        Mister Joshua was the meanest person in the world, but compared to
        you, he's a saint!"  Angelique remarks, "Perhaps you'd like to stay
        and see what else Barnabas has in store for him."  Ben says, "Josette
        and Jeremiah have run off! Mr. Barnabas will find out in a few days.
        What more do you want?"  Angelique replies, "I want him to know
        tonight! I don't want to waste any time. I want him to turn to me,
        and there's much to do".  Ben asks,  "Why don't you just cast a
        spell on him?"  Angelique replies, "No, I don't want him that way.
        He must truly be mine. He must turn to me of his own free will. Now,
        there's work to be done!" Ben asks, "What kind of work?"  Angelique
        replies, "I need Barnabas to know tonight about his dear uncle and
        Josette running off. Do you know where Barnabas is right now?" Ben
        says, "He's downstairs with Mr. DuPres", but Angelique tells him,
        "No, he's gone off into the woods to look for Josette".  Ben exclaims,
        "I've got to go join him! He shouldn't be alone in the woods!", but
        Angelique tells him, "Ben, do you think I'd let dear Barnabas be out
        there all alone? He has company in the woods, all the company he
        needs!"
           Barnabas is searching the woods for Josette. He calls, "Josette!
        Can you hear me, Josette!" There's a crunching noise. He calls out,
        "Josette! Is that you?", but there's no answer.  Barnabas demands,
        "Who is it, who's there?" He raises his pistol. The sound stops.
        The sound of laughter fills the air.  Barnabas asks, "Who are you?
        What are you doing here?" A male voice replies, "Poor Barnabas. Over
        here, Barnabas!" Barnabas asks, "Where?" The voice replies, "Right
        behind you!" Barnabas turns and sees a shadowy figure in an old
        fashioned "Pilgrim" type hat. It is dark and he cannot see the face
        clearly. Barnabas asks, "Who are you?"  The voice replies, "Don't you
        recognize me? I'm your Uncle Jeremiah".  Barnabas says, "You are
        not Jeremiah!" The voice continues, "Your Josette is gone, Barnabas,
        because she has left you! She does not love you!" Barnabas exclaims,
        "That's not true!", but the voice says, "It is! She loves ME! She has
        left you to marry ME! She has made a fool of you, she has deceived
        you! Barnabas the fool! Barnabas the fool!" Barnabas shoots at the
        figure and it vanishes. Suddenly, a voice calls, "Barnabas!"  Barnabas
        asks, "Who is it?" The voice replies, "Andre DuPres. Where are you?"
        Barnabas calls out, "Over here!" Andre DuPres comes into the clearing
        and joins Barnabas.  Andre tells Barnabas, "I decided you shouldn't
        be out here alone."  Barnabas replies, "I wasn't alone. There was a
        man here. I didn't recognize his face."  Andre asks, "Why did you
        shoot?" Barnabas replies, "He said he was Jeremiah, but I could tells
        it wasn't Jeremiah".  Andre suggests,  "Let's get back to the house.
        It's too dark." Suddenly, Barnabas hears a female voice saying,
        "Barnabas! Barnabas! Go to the road!"  Barnabas asks, "What road?"
        Andre asks, "Who are you talking to?" Barnabas asks, "Don't you
        hear it? The voice!" Andre replies, "I don't hear a thing". Barnabas
        asks the voice, "What road?"  The voice replies, "The road to
        Collinsport! You will find it there!"  Andre asks Barnabas, "Are
        you feeling all right?"  Barnabas replies, "I'm feeling fine. We're
        going to road to Collinsport".  Andre asks,  "Why?" Barnabas replies,
        "The voice said something would be there"
          They make for the road.  Andre asks, "And what is it you expect
        to find here?" Barnabas replies, "I don't know. There's the road, but
        I don't see anything".  Andre replies, "Just as I expected. Let's go
        back to the house". Barnabas replies,  "Yes", but then finds
        something.  Andre asks, "What is it?" Barnabas exclaims, "Josette's
        wedding veil!"
          In Angelique's room, Angelique announces, "He has found it!"
        Ben asks, "What?" Angelique replies, "Josette's wedding veil, torn
        and spattered with mud on the road to Collinsport."  Ben asks, "How
        did it get there?"  Angelique asks, "How do you think?" Ben asks,
        "What next?"  Angelique replies, "Wait a few minutes for Andre and
        Barnabas return and you'll see how much Barnabas has changed".  Ben
        remarks, "I don't want to see", but Angelique tells him,  "You've
        doubted me! I want you to see!" Ben says, "I don't want to see. I
        believe you can do anything, especially if it's evil".  Angelique
        orders, "You go downstairs first. I wouldn't want Barnabas seeing
        us together."  Ben asks, "Why? Afraid Mr. Barnabas will think there's
        something between us?" This angers Angelique, and she threatens to do
        to him what she did to Joshua, but worse. She threatens to turn him
        into a moth, which will be attracted to the fire and burn itself up...
           Barnabas and Andre return to the house. Barnabas remarks, "I still
        don't don't understand how it got out on the road. Do you suppose
        Josette could have been abducted?"  Andre replies, "I don't know what
        to think anymore." Ben comes downstairs and asks, "Mr. Barnabas. Is
        everything all right?" Barnabas replies, "No, Ben. Everything isn't
        all right. Where were you a while ago? I was looking for you. I
        wanted you to come help me search".  Ben lies, "I hadn't finished
        my chores. I was out getting the firewood. Find anything in the
        woods, Sir?"  Barnabas replies, "Nothing of any importance. Good
        night, Ben". Ben leaves. Angelique comes into the room and asks,
        "Monsieur Barnabas, any news of my lady?"  Barnabas replies, "No,
        none at all". Andre tells Barnabas, "Barnabas, my suggestion to you
        is to go to bed and get some rest", but Barnabas replies, "I'd prefer
        to stay here and wait for her".  Andre says, "As you wish.
        Goodnight" and goes upstairs.  Angelique tells Barnabas, "Barnabas,
        you really should try to get some rest after what you've been
        through", but Barnabas replies, "In spite of what I've been through,
        I still love her. No matter what has happened, no matter what will
        happen, I will always love her!!" Angelique looks shocked.

           Vicky comes in through the front doors of the Old House into the
        foyer carrying several large packages. She thinks to herself, "How I
        have dreaded this night. When I get back - if I ever get back - to my
        own time, I'll never want to know anyone's secrets again. I must be
        very careful tonight. I must not let anyone know that I know Jeremiah
        and Josette have run off together." Natalie comes into the foyer
        and remarks, "You've been to the postal service, I see. They must
        be wedding presents for Josette and Barnabas. They'll have to be
        sent back, of course. But you knew that, didn't you?"  Vicky says,
        "Excuse me, I have to go attend to Sarah", but Natalie stops her and
        asks, "Wait! How long has it been since you've known Josette and
        Jeremiah would elope?"  Vicky lies, "I've never known".  Natalie
        asks, "It was you who rearranged the cards, wasn't it?" Vicky lies,
        "No!", but Natalie says, "It could only have been you. You were the
        only other person in the room. You know the future!  Admit it!  When
        Josette and Jeremiah return, life will not go on as before. Things
        will happen, tragic things! You must tell me what you know!", but
        Vicky insists, "I know nothing!"  Natalie says, "We will see if that
        is true, Miss Winters!"
           Naomi is in her room. She pours herself a sherry and sips it.
        There's a knock at the door, and a voice from the other side calling
        "Sister!" Naomi quickly finishes the drink with a gulp, then says,
        "Come in!"  Abigail comes into the room. She sees Joshua the cat on
        a chair and exclaims, "That cat! Scat! Scat!" The cat runs off.
        Abigail exclaims, "You allow that cat in the room?!" Naomi replies,
        "It seems to like it in here".  Abigail says, "It's the Devil's pet!
        There's a battle between good and evil going on in this house!"
        Abigail notices the glass lying on the table, picks it up, sniffs it,
        then says, "We can't all withdraw from the battle as you have
        done!"  Naomi says, "It's a tonic. For my nerves. I'm upset. Who
        wouldn't be? First, Joshua, then Josette and Jeremiah".  Abigail
        says, "That foreign woman lured him away!", but Naomi says, "I'm
        sure there's some reason for Josette and Jeremiah's disapperance."
        Abigail remarks, "Desire, that's reason, desire for each other!"
        There's a knock at the door. It's Natalie. She apologizes, "Sorry
        to interrupt, but I have the feeling something else will happen in
        this house tonight if I didn't talk to you".  Abigail says, "Tell us.
        We'll do anything".  Natalie announces,  "There is a witch in this
        house".  Naomi exclaims,  "Nonsense!", but Natalie continues, "You
        ignored my warnings before, and see what happened?" Abigail asks,
        "Who is this witch".  Natalie replies, "I'm not sure, but I think
        it might be Victoria Winters. Question Miss Winters, and ask her what
        she knows about the future".  Naomi protests, "She's no more a witch
        than you or I!", but Abigail warns, "Another tragedy may happen if
        you do not do what we say!"
           Vicky is in her room. The cat is lying comfortably on the
        bed. Vicky is leafing through the family history and thinks to
        herself, "All those nights at Collinwood I used to pore over
        this book. I admired Joshua so, and thought how beautiful Naomi
        was, and she is beautiful. Am I really living with these people I
        used to daydream about?  How terrible it is to know what will
        happen to them and not be able to do anything". There's a knock
        at the door. It's Abigail. Vicky quickly hides the family history,
        then tells her to come in.  Abigail asks, "What took so long?"
        Vicky lies, "I was napping".  Abigail remarks, "I see you have that
        cat in here".  Vicky replies,  "He likes to spend quite a lot
        of time in here".  Abigail remarks, "Indeed".  Vicky tells her, "I
        don't mind. I like cats".  Abigail says,"I'm sure you do! Mrs.
        Collins would like to see you!"  Vicky asks, "Now?" Abigail replies,
        "At once!"  Vicky starts to leave, but notices that Abigail isn't
        coming with her and asks, "Aren't you coming?"  Abigail replies,
        "No, you go on".  Vicky protests, "Miss Collins, this is MY room!"
        Abigail asks, "Is there anything in here you don't want me to
        see?"  Vicky replies, "No".   Abigail says, "Then you shouldn't
        mind me staying".  Vicky protests, "I do. Would you like me staying
        in YOUR room?"  Abigail replies, "There's a difference. You don't
        own this house. We do.  We can go into any room and stay there
        as long as we like".   Vicky asks, "Why do you hate me?"  Abigail
        replies, "Tell you master I know what you are, that I recognized you
        and fought you the moment you stepped in this house!"  Vicky says,
        "I don't know what you're talking about".  Abigail orders,  "Go to
        Mrs. Collins!"  Vicky leaves.  Abigail looks at the cat and says,
        "Cat, I will do what I came to do!  I am not frightened you! I am
        protected by my faith!" She turns away from the cat and starts to
        search the room.  While Abigail's back is turned, the cat disappears
        in a loud puff of smoke, leaving Joshua sitting on the bed. Abigail
        turns around and exclaims, "Joshua!" and goes to him.  Joshua asks,
        "What am I doing in this room, and what is that stench of smoke?"
        Abigail faints in his arms.
           In Naomi's room, Naomi is questioning Vicky, asking her to tell her
        about her life before she came to them.  Vicky replies, "I wish I
        could, but I can't remember!"  Natalie asks, "Can't or won't? You
        should ask her about her clairvoyance!"  Naomi says, "She's already
        explained that that was Barnabas' joke".  Natallie asks, "Then why
        did she tell Nathan Forbes that Josette would never marry Barnabas?"
        Vicky protests, "That was when I first arrived. I was confused
        about names...", but Natalie points out, "But you told Nathan that
        Josette would marry Jeremiah!"  Vicky denies ever having said this.
        Joshua comes into the room and asks, "What's happening here?"  Naomi
        exclaims, "You're back!"  Joshua says, "The funny thing is I don't
        remember having been away."  Abigail exclaims, "You were gone for 7
        days!"  Joshua continues, "The last thing I remember is arguing with
        Jeremiah.  Where is Jeremiah?  Fetch him!" Abigail tells Naomi, "He
        doesn't know. I haven't told him".  Joshua asks, "Tell me what?"
        Abigail says, "Let the witch tell him what she's done!", but Joshua
        says,  "Don't give  me any of your nonsense about devils and demons,
        Abigail. I want facts!"  Abigail tells him, "Josette and Jeremiah
        have eloped!"  Naomi disagrees, "No they didn't! They've disappeared
        just like you did, Joshua", but Abigail points out, "But there's one
        difference! You didn't take your clothes, Joshua!"  Joshua asks
        Naomi, "You let this happen?!"  Abigail exclaims, "They were
        bewitched!" and accuses Vicky of doing it. Joshua dismisses everyone
        except Naomi. Abigail grabs Vicky's arm and says, "You will come with
        me!", but Naomi tells her, "She will not! She will go to cook and
        tell him Joshua's returned and needs some food". After everyone
        leaves, Joshua tells Naomi, "I am here now. We must discuss important
        matters. Tell me everything that's happened in my absence...".
           Natalie and Abigail sneak into Vicky's room while Vicky's
        in the kitchen.  Natalie remarks, "I though you said you took her
        clothes from her and burned them".  Abigail explains, "Jeremiah got
        them back for her. She must have bewitched him". They search the room
        and quickly find the clothes in a drawer. They look through the
        clothes and find a charm bracelet. They examine it and Natalie gasps,
        "All the signs of the zodiac!"  Abigail exclaims, "And the devil! The
        prince of evil himself! I must send for Reverend Trask! He's very
        good at dealing with witches! I will write to him tonight!  He will
        come from Salem immediately!"

            Josette and Jeremiah are in a room at the Collinsport Inn. 
         Jossette remarks, "Jeremiah, I'll never forget this room, or
         this inn, or you!" They kiss passionately.  Jeremiah asks, "Do
         you remember?" Josette asks, "What?" He looks at her hand and
         replies, "When this mark was the only think that connected us.
         Now we are married. Do you regret it?"  Josette replies, "Not if
         the rest of our lives is as happy as the last two days!" Jeremiah
         corrects her, "Last two and a half days".  Josette asks, "Oh, 
         Jeremiah, will we ever be able to go back?" Jeremiah reples, "If
         we want to".  Josette asks, "And if we cannot?"  Jeremiah replies, 
         "There's a shipyard in every port on the coast".  Josette tells 
         Jeremiah she thinks its impossible to go back and ponders on how 
         great it would be if they could spend the rest of their lives in 
         the hotel room.
            Jeremiah is lying in bed sleeping. Josette paces about the
         room, unable to sleep.  She sits down in front of the fire and
         stares into it. Suddenly, she hears her father's voice saying,
         "Not asleep, Josette?  Why have you treated us this way?  I raised
         you to be honest.  You said you loved Barnabas so much, didn't 
         you?" Barnabas' voice chimes in, "You said you loved me!"  Josette
         insists, "I did!" Barnabas asks, "You didn't, did you?"  Josette
         again insists, "I did!" Barnabas asks, "You loved Jeremiah too,
         didn't you?" Josette replies, "No! No!"  Andre's voice points out,
         "You ran away..." Jeremiah awakens and asks, "Josette, dear, what
         is it?"  Josette announces, "We must go back to Collinwood!"
         Jeremiah asks, "What has happened?"  Josette replies, "I've been
         so foolish, so foolish thinking I could never go back. But I've
         been thinking of my aunt, my father..." Jeremiah tries to touch
         her, but Josette exclaims, "Don't touch me!"  Jeremiah asks, "What
         has happened?"  Josette replies, "Nothing has happened! Take me
         back!"  Jeremiah tells her, "All right, I'll take you back
         tomorrow", but Josette says, "No, not tomorrow, tonight! Go
         down and get a carriage!" Jeremiah demands to know why she's
         acting this way, and suggests it's just a mood that will disappear
         tomorrow, but Josette insists, "It isn't a mood".  Jeremiah
         says, "All right, we'll go back. But never forget our love for
         each other".  He takes her hand to kiss it. Josette looks at her
         hand and exclaims, "Look! It's gone! It's gone!" The pitchfork
         shaped mark is, indeed, gone.
            At the old house, Barnabas is in the study pacing around.
         Andre DuPres comes into the room and announces, "I am determined
         to clear the air. Now, everyone in this house seems to have
         some secret thoughts. Such secret thoughts are unhealthy.
         Now, what if they did run off together?"  Barnabas exclaims,
         "That's impossible! Jeremiah's my best friend!" He worries about
         an alternate possiblity, "Perhaps she romanticized me, and when
         she came here, found I didn't come up to expectations".  Andre tells
         him, "Nonsense. The first day here, she told me how much she
         couldn't wait to marry you".  Barnabas says, "Then something must
         have happened".  A voice answers, "You are right" It is Joshua,
         who has just stepped into the room. Barnabas asks Joshua, "How do
         you know? Have you heard any news?"  Joshua replies, "No, but I
         have reached a decision. You may think me absurd, but I think this
         is all the result of witchcraft".  Andre remarks, "You are right!
         That's absurd!"  Joshua continues, "It has not been an easy
         decision, but your sister Natalie and my sister Abigail have
         convinced me of it. They have discovered what seems like
         concrete evidence of this, concrete enough evidence for me
         to take action". Barnabas asks, "What evidence?"  Joshua replies,
         "Evidence found in Miss Winter's room".  Barnabas exclaims,
         "Impossible! I'll vouch for her innocence! If you don't go to
         Aunt Abigail and stop this nonsense, I will!"  Joshua replies,
         "You will do nothing! If she is innocent, Reverend Trask will
         find her innocent." Barnabas exclaims, "Reverend Trask?! If you
         don't stop him from coming here..."  Joshua says, "I can't" Barnabas
         vows, "Then I will protect Miss Winters".  Joshua tells him, "If
         you do, I will consider you my enemy. I am determined to stop what's
         been happening in this house!"
            In the living room of the Old House, Riggs, a servant, is cleaning
         the mantel.  Jeremiah comes in through the front doors and says,
         "Hello, Riggs".  Riggs exclaims, "Mister Jeremiah!" Jeremiah asks,
         "Where are they all?"  Riggs replies, "The ladies are over at the
         new house". Jeremiah asks, "And my brother?"  Riggs replies, "I don't
         know". Jeremiah orders,  "Find him for me immediately!" As Riggs
         turns to leave to do so, Jeremiah asks, "Oh, Riggs.  Where is Mr.
         Barnabas?" Riggs replies, "At the shipyards, I believe".  Jeremiah
         says, "Thank you. Hurry if you will".  Riggs leaves.  Jeremiah looks
         at his hand. The mark on his hand is gone too. Josette comes in
         through the front doors.  Jeremiah tells her, "I told you to wait
         in the carriage!"  Josette replies, "I couldn't".  Jeremiah tells
         her, "No one's here. I sent for Joshua".  Josette asks, "Jeremiah,
         are you frightened too? I don't know what we're going to say!"
         Jeremiah says, "We'll say that we're married.  That what's done
         cannot be undone. That's all we shall say".  Josette says,
         "Jeremiah, I'm so frightened. Help me!"  Jeremiah tells her,
         "You wanted to come back and face them. What do YOU think we
         should do?"  Josette remarks, "Jeremiah, you seem so cold".
         Jeremiah replies, "Am I? It must be the trip... No, it's being
         back here, in this house, in this room..."  Josette says, "You feel
         differently towards me. I feel no love toward you, nor you towards
         me. Admit it."  Jeremiah says, "We're both upset. It's hard to feel
         anything right now".  Andre comes into the room and exclaims,
         "Josette! Whatever's happened, we'll get it all straightened out!"
         Joshua, who's also come into the room, sees Jeremiah and
         sarcastically remarks,  "Well, the prodigal has returned. Well,
         brother, what have you to say for yourself?"  Jeremiah announces,
         "We are married".  Andre exclaims, "Josette! Is this true?" Josette
         says, "It is true".  Andre turns to Jeremiah and angrily says,
         "You promised me you would stay away from her!"  Jeremiah starts
         to say, "I tried..."  Joshua, shocked, asks Andre, "You mean you
         knew about this?!"  Jeremiah says, "We have no explanation for what
         we did. Obviously, we are unwelcome here.  Understandibly. We will
         be at the village Inn until we decide what to do", but Joshua tells
         him, "No, you will stay here.  There will be too much gossip
         otherwise". Barnabas comes in through the front door and exclaims,
         "Josette!"  Joshua tells him, "They are married Barnabas".  Barnabas
         exclaims, "Married?!" Jeremiah echoes, "Married".  Barnabas
         screams,  "No!!!" He turns to Josette and asks, "Tell me you're
         married! I will not believe it until I hear it from you! Tell me,
         Josette!" Josette sadly replies, "I am married, Barnabas."  Barnabas
         asks, "Why? Why did you do it? I didn't know you! I was wrong about
         you!"  Josette meekly answers, "If it pleases you to think that".
         Barnabas turns to Jeremiah and asks, "And you, what do you have
         to say?"  Jeremiah replies, "I have no explanation. What we felt
         for each other we could not fight".  Barnabas announces, "Then
         you will fight me!" He slaps him and demands satisfaction.  Josette
         screams, "No!" and begs her father to stop it, but Andre sadly
         tells her, "I cannot. It's between men now".  Josette begs,
         "Barnabas, no!", but Barnabas replies, "Once, I would've
         listened to you, but now, you have no right to ask me". Josette
         turns and begs Joshua to stop the duel.  Joshua announces, "There
         will be no duel.  There has been enough tragedy in this house.
         There will not be another", but Barnabas replies, "You cannot stop
         a duel by words, father. We will fight!"

             Josette goes to Andre and begs, "Papa, we've got to talk".
         Andre sarcastically remarks, "Not a good sign for such a young
         marriage", and asks, "What can I do for you?" They are at first
         alone in the room, but while they are talking Angelique comes
         into the room bearing a tray of tea. Josette and Andre, almost
         unaware of her, continue talking. Josette asks, "Do you know that
         servant, Ben Stokes? This morning he brought a letter from Barnabas
         to Jeremiah. Jeremiah just read it and left. Papa, they're going to
         fight today! You must talk to Barnabas, Papa!", but Andre replies
         "It's a matter of honor. I cannot interfere." Josette continues to
         beg her father to try to stop the duel. Andre finally agrees, "I'll 
         talk to Barnabas. As a token gesture".  Angelique exits the room. 
         In the hallway, she has a worried look on her face.
            Barnabas is in his room examining a duelling pistol.  Angelique 
         comes in and begs him, "Barnabas, please do not fight today!  Once, 
         in this room, I told you I loved you. I should not care if you kill 
         or are killed, but I do!"  Barnabas remarks, "You still believe
         in love, don't you?"  Angelique replies, "Yes. You must still 
         believe in it too, or you will not be considering this duel".
         Barnabas replies, "I will not accept this! I must move! Act! I 
         must do something!"  Angelique remarks, "If this were Martenique, 
         it would be so easy. You would just find another woman."  Barnabas
         remarks, "But this is not Martenique! I want to ask you something,
         Angelique. Did you know about Josette and Jeremiah?"  Angelique
         replies, "I suspected something".  Barnabas asks, "Why didn't you 
         tell me?"  Angelique asks, "Would you have believed me?" Barnabas
         replies, "Yes", but Angelique says,  "No, you would've dismissed 
         it as the lies of a jealous woman. Have you ever fought a duel 
         before?"  Barnabas replies, "No".  Angelique asks "Have you ever
         killed anyone before?"  Again, Barnabas replies, "No".  Angelique
         continues, "But you will today. Do you think she will want to marry 
         you if you kill Jeremiah?"  Barnabas replies, "No."  Angelique
         asks, "But you will still want her".  Barnabas replies, "Yes".
         Angelique asks,.  "If I cannot stop the duel, will you do something
         for me?" She takes a medallion out and asks, "I want you to wear
         this during the fight. It's always brought me luck. It will keep
         you away from harm. Take it! Wear it!" Barnabas takes it and says,
         "Thank you, Angelique". There's a knock at the door. Barnabas asks,
         "Who is it?" It's Andre DuPres. Barnabas lets him in. Andre,
         surprised to see Angelique in there, asks her, "What are you doing
         in here?"  Angelique lies, "I came to return a book Mr. Collins
         left in Miss Josette's room".  Andre tells her, "Go to her at
         once. She needs you". Angelique leaves.  Andre says, "Well,
         Barnabas, what shall I say?"  Barnabas replies, "If you don't know,
         say nothing".  Andre says, "This duel is ridiculous."  Barnabas
         replies, "There's no point in discussing the duel with me".
         Andre begs Barnabas not to go through with the duel, saying, "I beg
         you not to destroy Josette's life just to satisfy your pride!"
            Jeremiah is with Josette. Josette, exasperated, says, "I can't
         talk to you if you deny there's going to be a duel! I followed you
         this morning. I saw you go to the gun case and examine the pistols!"
         She begs him to go see Barnabas and talk to him, but Jeremiah
         replies, "When I see Barnabas, it will be with a gun in my hand!
         He has demanded satisfaction!"  Josette replies, "I know the rules,
         but rules can be broken! A man cannot be brought back to life!"
         Jeremiah replies, "We've already broken enough rules. I don't
         intend to break this one".  Josette asks, "Do you really think
         you could kill Barnabas?"  Jeremiah replies, "He'll be trying to
         kill me. He's been like a brother to me, but..."  Josette inerrupts,
         "Until me. We didn't really love each other...Jeremiah! No one must
         die! If you do not go to Barnabas, I will!"  Jeremiah says, "No!
         You are my wife! I forbid it!  We ran away.  We knew we'd have to
         pay the price sooner or later. Perhaps the time has just come
         sooner than expected".  Josette accuses Jeremiah of wanting to be
         punished, of wanting to die. Andre comes into the room and tells
         Jeremiah, "Barnabas wants to see you"
            Barnabas is in his room examining a pistol. There's a knock
         at the door. He calls out, "Come in!" Jeremiah comes in.  Barnabas
         tells him, "I'm glad you came".  Jeremiah replies, "I'm glad you
         asked me to come...No, that's not true, is it? I'm not glad I came,
         and you're not glad you asked me to come.  Barnabas asks, "Why did
         you take her from me? Why? Do you love her?"  Jeremiah replies,
         "I'm not sure."  Barnabas says, "Then I hate you all the more. If
         you do not love her, then you have ruined all our lives for
         nothing!"  Jeremiah says, "I couldn't avoid it. She came to me!",
         but Barnabas says, "I don't believe you!" Jeremiah continues, "I
         should have gone away. I should have realized what would happen.
         I was going to, but then Joshua disappeared".  Barnabas asks, "Why
         didn't you come to me?"  Jeremiah replies, "It was so illogical,
         so mad! It was as if we were under some kind of spell!"  Barnabas
         says, "Father told you to say that. By talking about Witchcraft,
         you can avoid telling the truth!"  Jeremiah asks, "And what is that
         truth? Tell me."  Barnabas says, "That you wanted her the first
         time you saw her! That you seduced her and took her away from
         me!" Jeremiah exclaims, "No!"  Barnabas continues, "You've always
         hated me, haven't you?"  Jeremiah replies, "I don't know how I feel
         anymore. All I know is that Josette and I wanted each other".
         Barnabas asks, "And if you could do it all over again, would you?"
         Jeremiah replies, "Yes,  we would have no choice".  Barnabas says,
         "Then I have no choice!"
            Josette is alone in her room. There's a knock at the door.
         She calls out, "Father?", but it's Angelique. Angelique comes in
         and excitedly exclaims, "They have gone! Barnabas and your husband!
         They have taken the pistols and gone! They are going to fight the
         duel!"  Josette screams, "No!!!" and faints. Angelique takes out a
         handkerchief, moistens it with a little of Josette's rosewater,
         and rubs Josette with it, reviving her, and the spell as well.
         She exclaims, "Oh, Madame, stop them before it is too late! You
         must stop the duel!"  Josette moans, "Jeremiah! Jeremiah! I must
         go to them! He will kill him! He will kill him!"
            Barnabas and Jeremiah are in a clearing outside.  Barnabas
         announces the rules, "Ten paces and turn, then count to three,
         then fire. Is that understood?"  Jeremiah replies, "Yes".  Barnabas
         asks, "Are you ready?".  Jeremiah replies, "Yes". They turn their
         backs on each other, and slowly take ten paces. They turn. Barnabas
         starts to count, "One...Two..."
            Josette and Angelique run to the clearing, but are too late.
         The sound of two shots is heard. Josette screams, "No! No!"
         In the clearing, Barnabas is standing. Jeremiah is lying on
         the ground, wounded. Josette runs to Jeremiah and cradles his
         head in her arms and shouts, "Angelique! Run quick, get some
         help!" Angelique runs off.   Josette moans, "Oh, Jeremiah, my
         dear, please..." She looks up at Barnabas and screams, "You
         monster!  You madman!  You were so full of pride, you would not
         let us have our happiness!  See what you have done?  You have
         killed the only man I have ever loved!  Don't you come any closer!
         I'll take care of him!  Why couldn't you accept this? Don't touch
         him!"  Barnabas protests, "He will die if he does not get help..."
         Josette replies, "And you will have killed him!"  Barnabas,
         looking very sad, backs off, then leaves...

            (Missed 20 minutes due to oversleeping. Fill in later).
            Natalie asks Trask, "How are you going to prove she's a 
         a witch?"  Trask replies, "I have my ways, Countess, I have my 
         ways!"
            Abigail and Natalie are in the living room, waiting. Natalie 
         wonders, "Where has he taken her and why is it taking so long?" 
         Abigail says, "You must trust in Reverend Trask!", but Natalie
         says "I don't see why it was necessary for him to abduct the girl." 
         Abigail reiterates, "You must trust the ways of Reverend Trask!" 
         Natalie remarks, "That was unnecessarily violent earlier", but
         Abigail says, "It was necessary. Are you having second thoughts?"
         Natalie notes, "She denied being a witch so strenuously", but 
         Abigail remarks, "They all do!"
            Meanwhile, Trask has taken Vicky into the woods and tied her
         to a tree.  He tells her, "I will give you one last chance to 
         confess!"  Vicky screams, "You're insane!"  Trask says, "You're 
         making your salvation very difficult".  Vicky asks, "What are
         you going to do?" Trask tells her, "You're going to stay tied to 
         that tree, one of God's living creatures, all night. If you are 
         indeed guilty of witchcraft, the tree will be dead by morning".
         Vicky begs, "Please take me back to the house!"  Trask asks,
         "You are afraid of the test, aren't you?"  Vicky replies,
         "No, I'm afraid of being out here alone all night!"  Trask
         says, "You're afraid of being exposed!" He prays for the "demons
         to leave" Vicky's body. Vicky screams, "Somebody please
         help me! Please!!"  Trask tells her, "Say the devil's words all
         you want, but there is nobody to help you, nobody but God!" and
         leaves. Vicky screams, "Please don't leave me here alone! Somebody,
         please help me!!!"

            Natalie is pacing about in the living room of the Old House,
         looking uneasy.  Angelique comes into the room and hands her her
         Tarot Cards,  "You wanted your Tarot Cards, My Lady?" Natalie
         replies, "Thank you, Angelique. I must read them immediately. You
         may go to your room now". Angelique continues to stand there.
         Natalie asks, "Well?"  Angelique replies, "Excuse me, my Lady, but
         you seem worried about something. Anything I could do to help?"
         Natalie remarks, "Only if you could tell me where Miss Winters is".
         Angelique asks, "She's not in the house?"  Angelique replies, 
         "No, that's why I'm reading the cards". Angelique says, "Good 
         night, my Lady" and leaves. Barnabas and Nathan come in. Barnabas
         tells Natalie, "We'd like to have a word with you. Lt. Forbes and 
         I are concerned about Miss Winters. We were wondering if you were 
         here this afternoon when Reverend Trask was questioning her". 
         Natalie tells them the Vicky refused to cooperate. Nathan says, 
         "We must get her out of the house!"  Barnabas agrees, "She's in 
         danger as long as that superstitious fanatic's in the house!",
         but Natalie tells him, "He already took her" and explains what 
         happened.  Barnabas asks, "Do you know where?"  Natalie replies,
         "No." Barnabas asks, "Did he say anything about what he was going
         to do?"  Natalie replies, "No, just that he had a way of proving
         whether she was a witch. You must find her! I'm worried!" Barnabas
         remarks, "It's a little late for you to be worried".  Natalie begs,
         "You must find her! I'm very worried about what might happen! He's 
         very angry with her!" She tells him about Vicky slapping Trask and
         says, "I'm afraid he might be torturing her right now!"  Barnabas
         says, "We must find her! You should be ashamed of yourself for 
         letting this happen!"  Barnabas and Nathan turn to leave. Natalie 
         nervously says, "I hope you find her!" The Reverend Trask, who's 
         just walked in through the door, asks, "Find who?" Barnabas asks 
         him where Vicky is.  Trask replies, "That's none of your concern! 
         Do not interfere in God's fight with the Devil! The girl is 
         possesed! By morning I will have proof of this!"  Barnabas asks, 
         "How?" Trask replies, "I have subjected her to a foolproof test!" 
         Barnabas asks, "Where?", but Trask replies, "I won't tell you. Why
         are you defending her so strenously, after all she's done to your
         family?"  Barnabas angrily replies, "Reverend Trask, in your 
         crusade against Witchcraft, you may have forgotten that we have 
         just fought a war in this country to guarantee every person certain 
         rights, one of which is the right of being considered innocent 
         until proven guilty! Nathan, let's go!"  Trask growls, "I warn you, 
         Mr. Collins, do not interfere!" Barnabas and Nathan leave anyway. 
            Trask sees the deck of Tarot cards on the table and asks
         Natalie, "Are these Tarot cards yours, Countess?"  Natalie
         replies, "Yes".  Trask asks, "I see. Do you use them only for 
         entertainment?"  Natalie replies, "I use them to see the future."
         Trask says, "Only God may tell what is in our future!"  Natalie
         angrily replies, "I'll practice my own religion without advice 
         from you, thank you!"  Angelique comes into the room bearing a
         tray with tea things on it and says to Natalie, "I thought you
         might like some tea". Natalie thanks her, and Angelique puts the
         tray down. Natalie and Trask continue talking.  Natalie asks,
         "Tell me, are you sure Miss Winters will not be hurt?" Trask
         replies, "Yes".  Natalie asks,  "This test you mentioned. How sure
         are you it is foolproof?"  Trask explains, "I have her tied to a
         tree, a living creature of God. If she is a witch, the tree will
         be dead by morning.  That is my test."  The clock on the mantel
         strikes midnight.  Trask announces, "We shall know the result of
         it in less than 6 hours". Angelique, who has not left the room,
         hears all this...
            In the middle of the night, Angelique, dressed in a cloak,
         sneaks out of the house.
            In the woods, Vicky continues to scream, "Help! Help me!
         Somebody, please help me! Please! Please!!"
            Angelique is in the woods, searching for Vicky.
            Barnabas and Nathan are searching through the woods for
         Vicky. Unable to find her, Barnabas suggests, "We should go
         back and get Ben. He knows every inch of these woods".  Nathan
         asks, "How can we be sure she's in the woods?"  Barnabas points out,
         "We've already searched all the buildings on the property, and we 
         know he didn't take her into the village. That leaves only the 
         woods". They hear a crying, whimpering sound.  Barnabas exclaims, 
         "Miss Winters! Is that you? Miss Winters?"
            From nearby, Angelique hears all this.
            Vicky hears Barnabas' shouts and replies, "Mr. Collins! Is
         that you?" Barnabas replies, "Yes! Where are you?" Vicky shouts,
         "Over here! Please help me!"
            Barnabas and Nathan go in the direction of the sound and
         find Vicky. Barnabas, seeing Vicky tied to the tree, exclaims,
         "He must be some kind of madman!". They untie Vicky. Barnabas
         assures Vicky, "You're going to be all right. We won't let him
         hurt you".  Vicky asks, "Where will you take me?"  Barnabas 
         replies, "Back to your room".  Vicky exclaims, "No! I don't want 
         to go back to the house! I can't stay in the same house with him 
         there!"  Nathan says, "I agree."  Barnabas asks, "But where can 
         we take her?"  Nathan suggests, "To the new house". 
            After Nathan and Barnabas take Vicky and leave, Angelique
         comes out of hiding into the clearing.  She recalls Trask's
         words,  "I have her tied to a tree, a living creature of God. 
         If she is a witch, the tree will be dead by morning.  This is 
         my test." She takes out a small model of a tree, sets it down
         on a nearby stump, and sets it on fire. The tree to which Vicky
         had been tied catches fire too...                    
            The sun rises. Trask goes out. Natalie follows him.
            Barnabas and Nathan take Vicky to the new house. Barnabas
         looks at the drawing room and remarks, "This room will do. You'll
         be safe enough in here".  They take her in there. Barnabas tells
         her, "I'll bring some food from the house". Vicky remarks, "The
         sun has come up. Reverend Trask should be on his way to the
         tree just about now".  Nathan remarks, "I'd like to see the 
         look on his face when he sees there's nothing there!"  Vicky says,
         "I never want to see his face again!"  Barnabas says, "If I have my 
         way, he'll be sent away from here before the day is over". 
            In the woods, Trask catches Natalie following him and asks,
         "Well, Countess, you've decided to follow me".  Natalie replies,
         "I wanted to see if Miss Winters was safe."
            They get to the area where Vicky was tied. Trask gasps.
         Natalie asks, "What is it?"  Trask repiles, "The girl has escaped!"
         Natalie asks, "Where was she?"  Trask replies, "The girl has
         escaped, but her guilt is proven!"  Natalie asks, "What do you
         mean?"  Trask points to a tree and explains, "The girl was tied
         to that tree.  Last night, it was a vital, living creature of God.
         Now look what has happened!" The tree has burned up, leaving only a
         smoking stump...

            Trask and Joshua, and Andre DuPres are in the living room
         of the old house.  Angelique is holding a tray serving them coffee
         or tea. Trask tells Joshua and Andre, "She was bound securely to
         that tree! Someone must have helped her!" Andre asks, "Reverend,
         what are you suggesting?"  Trask replies, "I'm suggesting that
         whoever freed her is also in league with the devil! We are dealing
         with more than one witch! We are dealing with a coven! All must be
         sought out and destroyed! I will start by questioning everyone in
         this house!"  Angelique, who's leaving the the tea, looks very
         concerned.  Joshua asks Trask, "Are you suggesting it's someone in
         this house?"  Trask replies, "I'm only suggesting that at a time like
         this, no one should be above suspicion. Do I have your permission
         to start?" Joshua asks Trask to be discreet, saying he doesn't want
         a scandal to taint the Collins name. Trask agrees to be discrete.
         Joshua gives him permission to start his investigation. Andre is
         completely shocked at this and refuses to cooperate.  Trask asks,
         "Why do you object?"  Andre replies, "Because this is all 
         ridiculous! I am a civilized man, I come from a civilized country 
         where such superstitions were cast out long ago! I refuse to be 
         questioned by this man!"  Joshua asks, "I can't understand
         why you refuse to cooperate".  Trask remarks,  "Perhaps he has 
         a very good reason." Joshua asks, "Like what?"  Trask replies, "To
         protect himself, or perhaps to protect someone close to him". Andre
         exclaims, "That's absurd!"  Trask asks, "Then why do you refuse to
         be questioned?"  Andre replies, "It's a matter of pride".  Joshua
         tells him, "As the master of this house, I must insist that you
         allow yourself to be questioned!"  Andre reluctantly agrees,
         "All right, but let the records show that I was questioned
         under duress - by a complete idiot!"
           Angelique catches Nathan coming out of the servant's entrance
         carrying a bundle and asks, "Why are you coming out of the
         servant's entrance? What are you doing with that bundle?"
         Nathan replies, "It's an old shirt. I'm taking it out to be
         burned".  Angelique can smell that it's not an old shirt and
         remarks, "It smells too good to burn. It smells good enough
         to eat".  Nathan admits,  "All right, it's food from the house".
         Angelique asks, "Why are you taking food from the house?"  Nathan
         replies, "I'm going on a picnic, and I was too lazy to go into
         town to get food. Would you like to come with me? The company
         of a beautiful woman is always welcome!"  Angelique replies, "Some
         other time, maybe. I have work to do. I must be going".  She turns
         to leave.  Nathan asks, "Angelique, this will be our little secret,
         won't it?"  Angelique replies, "Yes".  Nathan leaves.  Angelique
         thinks to herself, "What a conceited fool you are, Lieutenant
         Forbes!  You did not fool me for a moment! You are taking that
         food to Miss Winters!"
            In the living room of the old house, Trask, who has just
         questioned all the servants, asks Joshua, "All the other servants
         were performing their duties when we called them.  Where is this
         Angelique?  Why is she suddenly missing?" Joshua replies, "She is
         not one of our servants. She works for the DuPres family".  Trask
         asks, "The DuPres family. What sort of people are they?" Joshua
         replies, "They're the richest family in Martenique".  Trask remarks,
         "If Mr. DuPres is any example, they're also very arrogant!."
            Trask is in the room alone, Joshua having left. Angelique comes
         into the room and says, "I was told you wanted to speak to me".
         Trask asks,  "Where have you been?" Angelique replies, "In the
         woods".  Trask asks, "Do you know who I am?"  Angelique replies,
         "You are the Reverend Trask".  Trask asks, "Do you know why I am
         here?"  Angelique replies, "To find the witch".  Trask corrects
         her, "To find the witches".  Angelique asks, "You mean there are
         more than one?"  Trask replies, "That's what I intend to find out.
         Sit down."  Angelique obediently sits down.  Trask starts his
         questioning, "I was told you came with the DuPres family from
         Martenique".  Angelique replies ,"Yes".  Trask asks, "Do you
         believe in the Allmighty?"  Angelique replies, "Yes".  Trask asks,
         "Do you fear him?"  Angelique replies, "Yes". Trask asks, "Were
         you baptized?"  Angelique replies, "No".  Trask asks, "Why not?"
         Angelique replies, "My mother and father died while I was young".
         Trask asks,  "Why hasn't the DuPres family had you baptized?"
         Angelique replies, "I don't know".  Trask says,  I think you DO
         know! Were you in the woods alone?"  Angelique replies, "Yes".
         Trask asks, "Why? Was it to meet someone there? Perhaps the devil
         himself?"  Angelique exclaims, "NO! The devil has never managed to
         tempt me!" Trask asks, "So he has tried?"  Angelique replies, "The
         devil tries to tempt everyone, but my loyalty is to my God! I go
         to the woods alone because it is quiet and there. I go there
         because there, I feel closer to God! Sometimes I feel very close
         to God!" Suddenly, she falls on her knees and says, "I feel it now!
         I feel closer to God than ever before! I see something! Reverend,
         it is a revelation, and you are responsible!!!" Joshua comes back,
         sees Angelique and asks, "What's happening to the girl?" Trask
         replies, "She's having a revelation!", then asks Angelique, "Tell
         me what you see!"  Angelique replies, "I see a house, a very large
         house, and it's new.  No one's there."  Trask asks Joshua, "Do you
         know of such a house, Mr. Collins?"  Joshua replies, "Yes.
         Collinwood. It's not yet completed".  Angelique continues, "There
         SUPPOSED to be no on there, but a man and a woman are there. I hear
         them speaking..."  Trask asks Joshua, "Where is this house?"  Joshua
         replies, "On the hill overlooking the sea.  It's a 15 minute walk
         from here". Trask exclaims, "I must go there! If I am not mistaken,
         the witch I have been looking for is there!" They leave. Angelique
         smiles evilly...
            Nathan and Vicky are in the drawing room of Collinwood. Vicky is
         ravenously eating the food Nathan has brought her.  Nathan says,
         "I apologize! I forgot the salt!"  Vicky replies,  "When you're as
         hungry as I am, you don't care!" She thanks him for putting himself
         in danger by helping her.  He tells her, "I'm in no danger. The only
         person who saw me leave was Angelique, and she promised not to tell
         anyone".  Vicky asks, "Has Barnabas talked to Mr. Collins yet?"
         Nathan replies, "Yes, but Abigail had talked to him first. Trask
         is staying."  Vicky remarks, "If only I could get back. But I've
         come through space and time, and I don't know how!"  Nathan warns
         her, "Miss Winters! If you keep talking like that, soon even your
         friends will start to doubt you!"  Vicky apologizes, "Forgive me,
         Lieutenant. I was thinking out loud".  Nathan warns her, "You
         had best stop. The things you're saying make no sense whatsoever.
         No wonder the Reverend Trask thinks you're a witch".  Vicky says,
         "I hope you're not starting to think I'm a witch".  Nathan replies,
         "No, but you are the most unusual person. I really don't know what
         to think of you".  Vicky says, "Please believe me when I say I'm
         not a bad person".  Nathan assures her, "You can continue to count
         on me." Suddenly, they hear the front door....
            Outside in the foyer, Joshua tells Trask, "The family will
         be moving in when it is finished in one month".  Trask announces,
         "I can feel it! There is an evil spirit in here!"  Joshua asks,
         "How do you go about sensing one? I've always wondered..." They
         hear a noise.  Trask points at the closed drawing room doors and
         says, "It's coming from there!" The drawing room doors open. Nathan
         comes out, closing the doors behind him.  Joshua demands,
         "Lieutenant Forbes! What are you doing in this house?"  Forbes
         replies, "Barnabas has spoken to me so often about the
         architecture, I came to take a look".  Joshua tells him, "It is
         customary to ask the owner first!"  Nathan replies, "I looked for
         you, but couldn't find you".  Joshua says, "Then you should have
         waited!"  Nathan replies, "I should have. I apologize".  Trask asks,
         "Where is she?"  Nathan replies, "I don't know what you're talking
         about".  Trask continues, "You lied about coming here to see the
         architecture. You came to see the girl!"  Nathan says, "If it's
         Miss Winters you're talking about, I don't know what you're talking
         about. I don't know where she is".   Trask turns to Joshua and says,
         "I suggest we search this house room by room!"  Joshua agrees. They
         start by going into the drawing room.  There is no on in there.
         Trask notices that the window is open and asks Joshua, "Are your
         workmen in the habit of leaving windows open?"  Joshua replies,
         "They are not. I shall speak to them about this."  Trask says,
         "That may not be necessary. Are your workmen allowed to eat here?"
         Joshua replies, "Certainly not!"  Trask points out some food in the
         drawing room to Joshua and says, "Well, someone has been.  And it
         would seem not very long ago. The food is QUITE fresh!"

           In Barnabas's room, Angelique is messaging Barnabas' temples.
         She asks, "There, feel better now?" Barnabas replies, "Yes, my
         headache is completely gone now".  Angelique asks, "Are you sorry
         I came here?"  Barnabas says, "I must go now. The Reverend Trask
         will be back soon".  Angelique asks, "You don't like him, do you?"
         Barnabas replies, "The man's a fanatic."  Angelique asks, "But you
         will help him find Miss Winters, won't you?" Barnabas replies, "I
         don't where she is".  Angelique asks, "But if you did, you would
         tell him, wouldn't you? You must, for your own good! Reverend Trask
         is right! There IS a witch in this house! She's capable of harming
         everyone in the house, including YOU. She must be found and
         destroyed!"  Barnabas asks, "Why are you so certain it's Miss
         Winters?"  Angelique replies, "Everyone else seems certain", but
         Barnabas says,  "Not everyone. Only the Reverend Trask, Aunt
         Abigail, and the Countess. And the Countess is starting to 
         have doubts".  Angelique says, "She must be. How else do you 
         explain everything that's happened?"  Barnabas remarks, "I am 
         certain Vicky Winters is not responsible".   Angelique says, 
         "You must admit, you're not the best judge of women. Josette,
         you thought she was faithful, but she deceived you, Barnabas, 
         deceived you with a member of your own family!"  Barnabas angrily
         says, "I don't want to talk about Josette!"  Angelique asks,  "You 
         don't love her anymore?" Barnabas answers, "No!"  Angelique asks,
         "Do you hate her?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes!"  Angelique says, "Say 
         it! I want to hear you say it!"   Barnabas exclaims, "I HATE HER!" 
         Angelique, overjoyed, says, "Barnabas, let me love you. I love you 
         so much.  I can make you happy if you give me a chance. Will you 
         give me a chance?"  Baranabas replies, "Yes".  They kiss 
         passionately.  Angelique tells him, "You'll never regret your 
         decision", and asks,  "Will you come to my room later?" Barnabas
         replies, "Yes"
            At Collinwood, Trask is questioning Nathan about Vicky.  Nathan
         lies, "I have no idea where she is".  Trask asks, "How do you 
         account for the food?"  Nathan replies, "I can't".  Trask remarks,
         "It's obvious that it's for Miss Winters".  Nathan replies, "Not 
         necessarily. I haven't lain eyes on Miss Winters since she 
         disappeared".  Trask says, "All right, lieutentant, but one word 
         of caution. You're a brilliant young man with a promising naval career
         ahead of you".  Nathan asks, "What do you mean?"  Trask explains,
         "If there is any scandal, word might reach the navy and it could 
         end your career. If you know anything about where Miss Winters is, 
         it would be very wise of you to tell me. Very wise indeed!"
            Trask is in the living room of the old house. Josette comes
         in.  She asks, "You wanted to see me, Reverend Trask?" Trask 
         replies, "Yes, Mrs. Collins, sit down".  Josette sits down.  Trask
         asks, "How is your husband?"  Josette replies, "Not well, I'm 
         afraid".  Trask asks, "How well do you know Miss Winters?"  Josette
         replies, "I hardly know her at all".  Trask asks, "Do you know any 
         reason she'd want to harm you?"  Josette replies, "No, we hardly
         know each other at all".  Trask tells Josette, "She is a witch!" 
         Josette asks, "Why would she want to harm me?" Trask replies, "The 
         devil wants to destroy the good and pure whereever he finds it!"
         He asks, "Let me see your hand!" Josette asks, "My hand?" and
         reluctantly lets Trask look at her hand. He sees the mark and 
         announces, "Just as I thought! The brand of the Devil!" Josette
         exclaims, "No! It's only a bruise", but Trask says, "You know 
         better than that and so do I".  Josette tells him, "It's not always
         there. It comes and goes".  Trask asks, "When did it first appear?" 
         Josette replies, "A few weeks ago".  Trask asks, "When it appears, 
         how do you feel?"  Josette replies, "Different"  Trask asks, "How?"
         Josette replies, "I can't explain".  Trask tells her, "You feel 
         different because you are possessed by he Devil! The only way to
         free you is to catch his handmaiden!"
            Barnabas is in his room. There's a knock at the door. It's
         Nathan.  Barnabas lets him in and asks him, "Have you found 
         where Miss Winters is hiding?"  Nathan replies, "She's in the 
         loft above the stables. I found her there when I went to get my 
         horse."  Barnabas asks, "How is she?"  Nathan tells him, "She's
         frightened, but she's all right. You've got to get her away from
         here right away".  Barnabas replies,  "She's safe where she is.
         Trask has already searched the stables. He won't search there
         again".  Nathan tells Barnabas about Trask's threat to report
         him to the Navy and says, "I can no longer help Miss Winters. If
         Trask questions me again, I can't guarantee what I'll say.  I might
         have to tell him the truth".
            Josette is talking to Trask in the living room. She asks him,
         "Do you really think I was bewitched?"  Trask replies, "Of course.
         When you are possessed by the devil, you have no will of your own.
         You're not responsible for your actions".  Josette remarks, "Not
         responsible for your actions? I'd like to believe I'm not
         responsible for what happened".  Trask tells her, "You weren't".
         Josette says, "I'd like to believe it, but no, I'd be deluding
         myself. I did what I wanted to do..." Trask says, "But you must
         admit the possibility exists".  Josette admits, "It is possible".
         She happens to look at her hand and exclaims, "The mark, it's
         gone!"  Trask asks, "Do you feel differently now that it's gone?"
         Josette replies, "I think I do".  Trask asks, "How?"  Josette
         replies, "I'm able to think much more clearly now."  Trask tells
         her, "I must cleanse your body so evil spirits can never inhabit
         it again! I must perform a ceremony exorcism!" He put his hands
         on her head and starts to say some prayers. Barnabas comes into
         the room, sees this and exclaims, "Reverend! What are you doing?"
         Trask explains that he's exorcising the evil sprits from Josette.
         Barnabas asks, "What evil spirits?"  Trask replies, "She has been
         under a spell, an evil force that has caused her to act against her
         will".  Barnabas turns to Josette and asks, "Do you really believe
         that?"  Josette replies, "I don't know".  Barnabas asks,  "What
         have you done against your will?"   Josette pauses, then says,
         "Nothing..."  Barnabas turns to Trask and tells him, "Then there's
         no sense in going on, Reverend".  He tells Trask to leave.  Trask
         says, "I must protect her from evil!", but Barnabas replies,  "She's
         already told you, she doesn't need you to!"  Trask says, "All
         right! In time, you will change your mind. But now, I must find
         the one who brought the evil into this house, I must find Miss
         Winters!" and leaves.  Barnabas asks Josette if she really believes
         she was possessed.  Josette admits she doesn't.  Barnabas tells her,
         "Let's have no more talk of magic spells, then".
            Barnabas is in his room. There's a knock at the door.  It's
         Angelique. He lets her in. Noticing the sad expression on Barnabas'
         face, she asks, "Anything wrong?"  He replies, "No" She reminds
         him, "You promised to come to my room tonight. Why didn't
         you?"  Barnabas replies, "It isn't going to work, Angelique".
         Angelique asks, "What?"  Barnabas replies, "I still love her.
         I still love Josette in spite of everything that's happened".
         Angelique asks, "Has something happened since this morning?"
         Barnabas replies, "I saw her and realized I could never hate
         her." Angelique begs, "Barnabas! Look at me! I can make you so
         happy! Please!!!", but Barnabas replies, "No, I am capable of
         loving only one woman. Josette".  Angelique, a look of complete
         disbelief on her face, asks, "In spite of what she's done?!?!?"
         Barnabas replies, "In spite of what she's done".  Angelique asks,
         "So, you're telling me I'm not good enough for you! You're rather
         love that conniving, scheming Jossete than me!"  As she is speaking,
         she notices that Saran's doll is lying on a table.  Barnabas replies,
         "There's nothing more to say. I hope it's still possible for us
         to be friends".  Angelique coldly replies, "Of course. Why not?"
         She picks up Sarah's doll and remarks, "Sarah must have left this
         here. I'll take it back to the nursery".  Barnabas says, "I hope
         you understand".  Angelique replies,  "I understand!  I understand
         perfectly!" and leaves.
            Angelique is in her room, looking at Sarah's doll.  In
         a very mocking voice, she quotes Barnabas, "I hope it is
         still possible for us to be friends!!", then answers herself,
         "No, Barnabas, it is not possible! I'm going to make you
         pay for turning away from me! But not through Josette this 
         time, but through someone else you love. Little Sarah, your
         dear little sister. You are going to see her suffer, Barnabas,
         and seeing her suffer will be the worst agony you have ever
         known!" She looks at the doll evilly...

            In the nursery,  Naomi is telling Sarah a story, the
         story of the 12 princesses, "Once there were 12 princesses.
         They were all very beautiful, and the prince didn't know
         which of them to marry, so he devised a test for them..."
            Angelique, in her room, takes a pincussion out from a
         drawer, and takes several pins from it. She takes one of
         the pins and sticks it into the doll's chest.
            In the nursery, Sarah suddenly grabs her chest and screams 
         "Mother! It's hurts! Right here! It hurts!" In her room,
         Angelique sticks another pin in the doll's chest. Sarah,
         in the nursery, continues to screams, "Here! Mother! It
         hurts!" Angelique sticks a third pin into the doll's chest.
         In the nursery, Sarah falls to the floor, unconscious...
            Sarah is lying in her bed, unconscious. Naomi is watching
         over her. Barnabas comes into the room. Naomi asks him, "What
         did the doctor say? Surely he told you more than he told me!"
         but Barnabas tells her the doctor had no idea what was wrong
         with Sarah. He tries to reassure his mother by reminding
         her that when he was ill, the doctor didn't know was wrong
         with him either, and he suddenly recovered and says "Maybe this
         will happen with Sarah!" Sarah starts to regain consciousness
         and moans, "Mother, what's happening to me? Why do I feel
         so funny? Why does everything hurt?"  Naomi tells her, "We'll
         stay with you!"  Sarah asks, "Where's Miss Winters?" Naomi replies,
         "She had to go away".  Sarah asks, "When is she coming back? Soon?"
         Naomi replies, "Perhaps".  Sarah says, "I want Miss Winters!"
         Barnabas asks, "Do you miss her that much?" Sarah replies, "I miss
         her a lot! Go get her, Barnabas! Get her and tell her I want to see
         her!"  Barnabas replies, "I promise I will, but you must do what I
         say. Rest!"  Sarah asks, "Will Miss Winters be here when I wake
         up?" Barnabas replies, "Perhaps".  Sarah goes to sleep.  Naomi tells
         Barnabas, "Barnabas, you shouldn't have told her you'd find Miss
         Winters! She's going to be upset when she wakes up and finds he
         isn't here".  Barnabas replies, "I won't break my promise".  Naomi
         points out, "But no one knows where Miss Winters is".  Barnabas
         replies, "I know where she is. She's in the loft above the stables.
         Lt.  Forbes found her there a few hours ago."  Naomi remarks, "I'm
         not sure I want her coming into this room".  Barnabas asks, "Why?
         Do you think she's a witch? I can assure you she's not! Do you
         think I would I think for a moment of bringing her here if I
         thought she might harm Sarah?"
            Barnabas exits Sarah's room. In the hallway is Beh Stokes.
         Looking very worried, he says to Barnabas, "I heard Miss Sarah
         was sick. Is there anything I can do for her?" Barnabas sadly
         replies, "There isn't anything anyone can do for her".  After
         Barnabas leaves, Ben thinks to himself, "There is something I
         can do! I know who's caused this.  It's that Angelique! She's
         gone too far this time! She's got to make Miss Sarah well again,
         or I'll kill her!"
            There's a knock at the door of Angelique's room.  Nobody is
         in the room, so there is no answer. The door opens, and Ben
         comes in. He proceeds to search the room.  While he is doing
         so, Angelique returns.  She asks, "Ben, what are you doing?
         Answer me! What are you looking for!"  Ben angrily replies, "You
         know what I'm looking form.  Don't pretend you don't know what's
         going on!  You know about Miss Sarah!"  Angelique replies, "I heard
         she was ill".  Ben says, "You made it happen! You put one of your
         spells on her! She's never hurt you! Why are you doing this to
         her?"  Angelique replies, "To get what I want. I want Barnabas to
         come to me begging me to make Sarah well".  Ben asks, "And if he
         doesn't?  Are you just going to let her die?"  Angelique replies,
         "I might!"  Ben exclaims, "You're evil!"  Angelique says, "I might
         decide to let Sarah live. It's very simple." She takes the doll
         out and shows it to Ben and explains, "If I decide to remove the
         pins, Sarah will be well again. It's as simple as that!"  Ben
         demands, "Do it! Now!", but Angelique refuses, "Not yet. Not
         until Barnabas comes to me!"  Ben threatens her, "Do it now,
         or I'll kill you!", but Angelique replies, "You can't harm
         me, Ben, I have too much power over you".  Ben says, "I'm not
         afraid of you! Remove those pins or I'll kill you!" He raises
         his arms into a "choking position" and starts to approach her.
         Angelique shouts, "Stop! Listen!" Ben stops.  He hears the sound
         of a heart beating.  Angelique asks, "Do you know what that sound
         is, Ben? It's the sound of your own heartbeat!" The beat starts to
         quicken.  Angelique tells him, "Listen, Ben! It's beating faster!
         Soon, your heart will be beating so fast, it'll burst!" Ben falls
         to his knees and grabs his chest in pain.  Angelique tells him,
         "Only I can stop it! Will you promise me you will be obedient to
         me from now on?" Ben gasps, "Yes..."  His heartbeat returns to
         normal.  Angelique tells him, "See? I can be merciful. But next
         time, I will show you no mercy!  I will allow you to die!"
            Barnabas brings Vicky to Sarah's room.  Sarah exclaims, "Miss
         Winters!"  Vicky says, "Hello, Sarah".  Sarah asks, "Is it really
         you?"  Vicky replies, "Of course it is".  Sarah asks, "Where have
         you been?"  Vicky replies, "I'd gone away for awhile, but now I'm
         back".  Sarah says, "I'm glad. Tell me another story about Samantha.
         But where is she?"  Vicky asks, "Your doll?"  Sarah replies, "I 
         looked all over for her this morning, but I couldn't find her".
         Barnabas tells her, "I'll get it" and leaves to do so.  Sarah cries,
         "My chest! It hurts! Why does it hurt?" and lapses into 
         unconsciousness again.  Naomi tells Vicky, "Miss Winters, I owe 
         you an apology. For a moment this morning, I thought you were 
         a...."  Vicky asks, "A witch?"  Naomi replies, "Yes, but seeing 
         you with Sarah, I know you wouldn't do anything to hurt her". 
         Vicky says, "I wish I could do something for her".  Naomi replies,
         "So do I, but there's nothing anyone can do for her" 
           There's a knock at Angelique's door. The doll with the pins
         in it is lying on a table. Angelique goes to open the door,
         but just as she is about to do so, remembers the doll. She
         goes back, takes the doll, hides it under her pillow, then
         goes and opens the door. It is Barnabas.  She exclaims, "Barnabas!" 
         Barnabas asks, "What did you do with the doll?"  Angelique asks,
         "Sarah's doll?" Barnabas replies, "You picked it up in my room 
         this morning and said you were going to return it to the nursery. 
         I looked all through the nursery for it but couldn't find it".
         Angelique lies, "I put it with all the other toys. I don't know 
         what happened to it".  Barnabas tells her, "I've got to find it. 
         Sarah's ill and wants it"  Angelique asks, "Sarah's ill?"  Barnabas
         tells her about Sarah's sudden illness.  Angelique asks, "Has a
         doctor been called?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes, but he said he
         couldn't do anything. If no one can help, I'm afraid she'll die".
         Angelique tells him, "I think I can help her! I might be able to
         cure her!"  Barnabas, looking dubious, "YOU cure Sarah? But how,
         when a doctor can do nothing for her?"  Angelique replies, "Tell
         me about her illness. Where does it hurt, here?", pointing to her
         chest.  Barnabas replies, "Yes, but how did you know?"  She replies,
         "I had the same illness when I was a child. I would have died if
         my mother hadn't known what to do."  Barnabas asks, "What did she
         do?"  Angelique replies, "She brewed a tea of herbs".  Barnabas
         asks, "Drinking the tea made you well?"  Angelique replies, "Yes.
         My mother taught me how to make it. Shall I brew some?"  Barnabas
         replies, "Yes. I'm willing to try anything!"  Angelique asks, "If
         I cure Sarah, will you feel endebted to me?" Barnabas asks, "What
         do you mean?"  Angelique replies, "I want you to make me your wife!
         Should I cure Sarah, that is the price I ask! Is the price too
         high?"  Barnabas replies, "No price is too high for Sarah's life".
         Angelique tells him, "Then if she lives, you will marry me. You
         will make me your wife".  Barnabas replies, "I will do anything if
         you cure Sarah".  Angelique tells him, "Then I will go and brew the
         tea".
            In Sarah's room, Naomi remarks, "She's so pale! I don't think
         she'll live. She can't die! She can't".  Barnabas comes into
         the room, carrying a teacup.  He asks, "How is she?"  Naomi replies,
         "Worse. Much worse. What's that?"  Barnabas replies, "Some tea
         Angelique brewed for Sarah. She said it had restorative powers".
         Naomi asks, "What good will that do?"  Barnabas replies, "It
         couldn't do any harm. Sarah, drink some of this".  Sarah sips
         the tea.
            Meanwhile, in Angelique's room, Angelique starts to remove
         the pins from the doll...
            In Sarah's room, Sarah asks, "Is that you, Barnabas? The
         pain..."  Barnabas interrupts, "Try not to think about the
         pain. I'll tell you a story...", but Sarah says, "They're gone!
         The pains! They've gone away!"
            In Angelique's room, Angelique talks to the doll, "You have
         served me well, little doll.  Because of you, Barnabas is
         indebted to me, and I shall collect payment for that debt!
         I shall be his bride!"

            Andre and Josette are watching over the seriously injured
         Jeremiah, who is lying in bed unconscious. The clock reads
         11:03. Andre tells Josette, "My dear, why don't you go rest 
         awile? I'll let you know if there's any change in his condition."
         Josette moans, "Jeremian's dying because of me! I can't leave 
         him!"  Josette suddenly gives a start. Andre asks, "What is it?"
         Josette asks, "Don't you feel it? I feel so cold!"  Andre replies,
         "I don't feel anything".  Josette exclaims, "I know what it is!
         It's the presence of death! Jeremiah is going to die! Tonight!"
            Andre is in the living room of the Old House talking to Barnabas,
         telling him, "She's frightened, Barnabas. She keeps saying the same
         thing over and over again, 'Jeremiah's going to die!'"  Barnabas
         protests, "But the doctor said he was getting better", but Andre
         tells him, "She still keeps saying he's going to die. She feels
         guilty, and if he dies, she'll live with the guilt for the rest of
         her life".  He begs Barnabas to go and tell Josette she isn't to
         blame for what happens to Jeremiah, but Barnabas replies, "You ask
         too much of me". Andre tells him, "If you ever loved her, go to her
         now and tell her she's not to blame!"  Barnabas replies, "I'll go to
         her". Angelique come into the room and says, "Monsiuer Barnabas..."
         Andre excuses himself and leaves. Angelique asks, "How's Sarah?"
         Barnabas tells her, "She's playing with her dolls and complaining
         about having to stay in bed. Her fever's gone. In a few days she'll
         forget she was ever ill. Where's Josette? I have to talk to her".
         Angelique tells him where Josette is and asks, "Are you going to
         tell her the news?" Barnabas, looking puzzled, asks, "News?"
         Angelique reminds him, "That we're going to be married".  Barnabas
         exclaims, "Angelique!"  Angelique continues, "It's going to be a
         great surprise to her.  It's going to be a great surprise to
         everyone. Perhaps they will think me not worthy, and perhaps I'm
         not, but I will do everything I can to make you a good wife".
         Barnabas exclaims, "Angelique!  I've never spoken of marrying you!"
         Angelique reminds him, "You did! This afternoon. You told me you
         would marry me if I cured Sarah".  Barnabas, now remembering his
         promise to her, says, "I thought Sarah was dying.  I was desperate.
         I wasn't thinking.  I didn't know what I was saying. I hope you
         understand that".  Angelique replies, "I understand only this. You
         promised to marry if I cured Sarah.  Now you're going back on your
         promise. Apparently you do not want to marry me. If you do not want
         to marry me, I release you from your promise".  Barnabs starts to
         say, "Angelique...", but Angelique says,  "Do not say any more!"
         and starts to cry.  Barnabas tells her, "Don't cry".  Angelique
         replies,  "Sorry, I can't help it. I allowed myself to believe the
         impossible could happen..." Barnabas tells her, "Angelique, I want
         to be fair with you. You know how I feel about Josette..."  Angelique
         says, "Soon, she will be a widow and you will be able to have her",
         but Barnabas replies, "No, she's married to Jeremiah. There can
         never be anything between us, but I will always love Josette."
         Angelique says, "I understand.  I am only a servant. I can never
         hope that you will the way you love a great lady like Josette DuPres.
         I release you from your promise. You will never accept me as your
         wife".  Barnabas asks, "Can you accept me, knowing how I feel about
         Josette?"  Angelique replies, "Yes. I love you".  Barnabas tells
         her, "Then I won't break my promise. If you will accept me as I am,
         then you will be my wife".  Angelique, overjoyed, embraces him and
         promises, "Barnabas, I will make you happy. I promise you I will!"
         Barnabas asks, "Do me one thing.  Don't tell anyone. Let me handle
         telling everyone".  Angelique replies, "Whatever you wish, I shall
         do! I will make this the pattern of our marriage. I will be an
         obedient and dutiful wife".  Naomi comes into the room and tells
         Angelique, "Mademoiselle DuPres is asking for you". Angelique
         leaves.  Naomi tells Barnabas, "I wish you would speak to Josette.
         Ease her mind. Talk to her", but Barnabas replies, "Not now. I'd
         rather not face her at the present time".  Naomi protests, "But she
         needs you now".  Barnabas tells her, "Mother, I have to talk to
         you. I've decided to get married".  Naomi asks, "Married? Who?
         Cousin Millicent?" Barnabas replies, "No, I've asked Angelique to
         be my wife".  Naomi is shocked. Seeing the look on her face, Barnabas
         asks, "Do you object because she is a servant girl?"  Naomi replies,
         "No, I don't object. Do you love her?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes".
         Naomi points out, "But a week ago you loved Josette. Barnabas, are
         you sure this is what you want to do? I hope you're not making a
         mistake, a mistake you might regret the rest of your life"
            Angelique is with Josette.  Josette asks, "Have you seen
         Barnabas?"  Angelique replies, "He's down in the drawing room".
         Josette remarks, "Father said he wanted to talk to me this evening".
         Angelique tells her, "I don't think you can expect to see him
         tonight.  He's in a strange mood".  Josette asks, "Do you know
         what he wanted to say?"  Angelique replies,  "Yes, but he wouldn't
         want me to tell you".  Josette promises,  "He'll never know
         you told me. Please tell me!"  Angelique tells her, "He was going
         to tell you he forgives you, you and Jeremiah".  Josette asks,
         "Did father tell him to say that?"  Angelique replies, "I don't
         know. They talked today, but I don't know what they talked about".
         Josette moans, "He doesn't really forgive me. He hates me!
         And no wonder! He and Jeremiah were the greatest of friends.
         Until I came to this house, and now he's dying because of me!
         I've brought nothing but bloodshed and tragedy to this house.
         No wonder Barnabas hates me! I hate myself! I wish I were dead!"
         Angelique begs, "Don't say that!"  Josette says, "Please leave me
         alone!"  Angelique asks, "Are you sure there's nothing I can do
         for you?"  Josette again says, "Please leave me alone!"  Angelique
         leaves.
            Andre is watching over Jeremiah.  Barnabas comes into the
         room and asks "How is he?" Andre replies, "Very low. A moment
         ago, I thought he had stopped breating. Josette may be right.
         He may not live the night. Have you spoken to Josette?" Barnabas
         replies, "No".  Andre asks, "Why not? You said you were going to." 
         Barnabas replies, "I will. Tomorrow, perhaps".  Andre asks, "Why 
         not today?"  Barnabas replies, "Something happened today, something 
         I must tell Josette, but not today."  Andre asks, "What?", but
         Barnabas replies, "I can't tell you yet".  Andre asks, "Do you 
         hate her?"  Barnabas replies, "I should, but I don't".  Andre
         asks, "Do you forgive her?"  Barnabas repliesk, "Yes. I suppose
         she couldn't help falling in love with Jeremiah".  Andre asks,
         "And Jeremiah? Do you forgive him?"  Barnabas replies, "Try as I
         might, I cannot forgive him".  Andre says, "But you two were the
         best of friends! Please, Barnabas, forgive him", but Barnabas
         replies, "I try, but I cannot forget that he stole Josette from
         me. I wish it were not so, but..."  Andre suddenly interrupts,
         saying, "Barnabas! I can't hear him breathing!"
            Josette is in bed sleeping. Suddenly, she awakens, bolts up
         and asks, "Who is it? Who's there?"  The clock in the room strikes
         2:00.  Josette, not seeing anything, lies back down. A ghost
         appears. Josette sits up again and sees the ghost.  She asks, "Who
         are you? What do you want?" The ghost does not answer.  Josette
         demands, "Answer me! Why don't you answer me? What do you want?"
         Suddenly, she recognizes it is Jeremiah and exclaims, "Jeremiah!
         What are you doing here? Have you recovered? Why didn't they
         let me know? Jeremiah, why don't you answer me?"  Jeremiah exits
         through the closed door.  Josette, not noticing how strange this
         is, calls after him, "Jeremiah! Jeremiah!", gets up, goes to the
         door, opens it, and goes out.
            In Jeremiah's room, Andre DuPres draws Jeremiah's bedsheets
         over his head.  Josette comes running in and shouts, "Father!"
         Andre asks, "What are you doing here?"  Josette replies, "I just
         saw Jeremiah! I saw him in my room!"  Andre replies, "Josette,
         you couldn't have seen Jeremiah in your room. You must have dreamt
         it."  Josette insists, "I saw him. I wasn't dreaming!"  Andre tells
         her, "Josette, Jeremiah is dead. He died a few minutes ago".
         Josette insists, "But I saw him! I know it! I woke up, the clock
         struck two, and I saw him standing there!"  Andre asks, "You heard
         the clock striking two?"  Josette replies, "Yes".  Andre tells her,
         "But the clock was striking two when he died. Two o'clock was the 
         exact time of his death!"

            Naomi and Joshua are in the living room.  Joshua asks, "You 
         want everyone in the village to know your son killed his unele 
         in a duel?"  Naomi replies, "Some people already know".  Joshua
         announces, "The rest of them will think Jeremiah died in an 
         accident while cleaning his gun! And we will leave this house 
         tomorrow to live in the new house!" Naomi protests, "But it's 
         not finished yet", but Joshua says, "It's liveable.  I cannot 
         stand to live in this house for one more day.  Too much tragedy 
         has happened here. Nothing else must happen!" Naome tells him,
         "Something else IS going to happen".  Joshua asks, "What? Tell me!" 
         Naomi tells him, "Barnabas has told me he intends to marry".
         Joshua, shocked, asks, "Does this Josette have no propriety?
         She buries one husband one day, and plans to marry another
         the next!", but Naomi tells him, "He's not planning to marry 
         Josette. He's planning to marry Angelique".  Joshua exclaims,
         "Angelique?! Bring Barnabas down here immediately!!"
            Barnabas has joined Naomi and Joshua in the Old House living room.
         Barnabas says, "Sorry, father, that you had to hear about it 
         this way. I should have told you myself".  Joshua exclaims, "You 
         can't be serious!"  Barnabas replies, "I am".  Joshua, in disbelief,
         exclaims, "You can't marry this girl! It's absurd! How well do you
         know her?"  Barnabas replies, "Very well".  Joshua complains, "She's
         not been here a month! I haven't spoken to her 10 times! I hardly
         know what she looks like!"  Naomi tells him, "She's very pretty".
         Joshua asks Barnabas,  "Is that why you're marrying her? You will
         cancel this wedding!", but Barnabas replies, "No, Father, I promised
         her I would marry her".  Joshua bellows, "Then you will break that
         promise!"  Barnabas replies, "I cannot break a promise. You raised
         me to be a man of honor."  Joshua says, "This is a mistake!"
         Barnabas replies, "It's not a mistake". Joshua asks, "Do you love
         her?"  Barnabas pauses, then replies, "She loves me. Leave us
         alone, Father. There's nothing you can do to stop us".  Joshua
         says, "We'll see about that!!"
            Josette is standing over Jeremiah's grave. Barnabas watches
         her from the trees and thinks to himself "How can I tell her?
         But I must.  When she comes back to the house, someone else will.
         Josette must hear it from me. But not now. Not at Jeremiah's grave. 
         But perhaps if I tell her now, it will help her. Perhaps it will
         help her feel less remorse".  Josette puts some flowers on
         Jeremiah's grave. The headstone reads, "Here Lyes Jeremiah Collins,
         Born 1763 Died 1795).  Barnabas comes up to her and says, "Good
         Evening".  Josette replies, "Good Evening".  Barnabas asks, "Are you
         offended?"  Josette, puzzled, asks, "Sir?" Barnabas explains, "That 
         I am here".  Josette replies, "You cared very much for Jeremiah 
         once. Before I came." Barnabas tells her, "You must not blame 
         yourself!", but Josette replies,  "I'm afraid there's no one else 
         to blame".  Barnabas reminds her,  "I shot him. You did not kill 
         him.  My temper did. Do not hate yourself.  Hate me. You are young, 
         many pleasant things will happen to you", but Josette replies,  
         "No, not after this".  Barnabas insists,  "Yes. After this.
         Believe me".  Josette moans,  "Oh, Barnabas, what are we going 
         to do?" Barnabas replies, "We will both go on living again.  There 
         will be a new life for both of us".  Josette remarks, "I don't know 
         how to do that. You do?" Barnabas replies, "I think so. Josette...",
         but Josette interrupts,  "Please, do not say anything you are going 
         to regret. You make me feel better, somehow. All that we used
         to feel together, I never thought we'd feel regret."  Barnabas
         starts to say, "Josette...", but once again she interrupts him, 
         "Not not, not here".   Angelique comes and asks Josette if she's
         finished yet.  Josette replies, "Yes, I think I'm ready to go back".
         Angelique remarks, "If Mister Barnabas wants a ride back, there's 
         room in the carriage", but Barnabas declines the invitation. 
         Josette leaves.  Angelique, a very suspicious look on her face, 
         asks Barnabas, "Was I interrupting something?"  Barnabas replies, 
         "You interrupted nothing, nothing at all!"  Angelique says, 
         "I hope not!"
            In the drawing room at the Old house, Naomi tells Joshua, 
         "Joshua, you must treat her tactfully!"  Joshua replies, "Tact? 
         The word is unimportant to me when it comes talking to servants!"
         Naomi begs, "Please, you may make Barnabas an enemy to us, and I 
         will not have that!" Angelique comes into the room. Naomi starts 
         to say, "Barnabas has told us...", but Joshua interrupts, "Naomi, 
         I think you should go about your work", but Naomi replies,
         "That can wait".  Joshua just says,  "You know best, dear." He 
         turns to Angelique and asks, "I understand you wish to marry my 
         son".  Angelique replies,  "He wishes to marry me".  Joshua
         tells her, "He did not phrase it that way".  Angelique replies, 
         "You must have been mistaken".  Joshua tells her,  "No, his
         voice lacked emotion. Has this love sprung from nowhere?
         You are taking gross advantage of my son! You took advantage
         of him and made him promise to marry you when he thought his
         sister was dying in exchange for curing her! You are nothing
         but an adventuress!"  Angelique, looking offended, replies, "I
         am aware that I entered this house a servant, but I am also aware
         that in this great democracy of yours, it is possible for one to
         rise above one's station".  Joshua tells her,  "There is another
         way for you to rise above your station..."  Angelique interrupts,
         "All I want is your good will and approval".  Joshua tells her,
         "You will never have them. I offer you $10,000 in gold. You can
         return to Martenique quite a lady with that. It's a small enough
         price in exchange for my son's future".   Angelique remains silent.
         Joshua asks, "You want more?"  Angelique replies, "I want you to
         like me".  Joshua exclaims,  "Never!"  Angelique warns him, "If
         you're not going to give us a chance, I'm afraid your life will be
         all the more lonelier for it".  Naomi agrees, "She's right".
         Angelique excuses herself, saying, "I have to pack for
         Mademoiselle Josette".  Joshua asks, "When are you planning to
         marry?" Angelique replies, "As soon as possible".  Joshua protests,
         "It will cause talk in the village. If you're so fervent about
         becoming one of us, you should at least live by our standards".
         Angelique replies, "I would, if I knew what they were".  Joshua
         tells her, "You should wait until a proper period of mourning
         for Jeremiah has passed".  Angelique makes the accusation, "You
         want the time to fight me!"  Joshua admits this, "We understand
         each other perfectly!"  Angelique announces, "We will marry
         immediately!" She thinks to herself, "You will not take Barnabas
         away from me. But there is one person who can. I must see to it
         that she does not!"
            Josette is in her room sleeping. Suddenly, she is awakened
         by a female voice saying, "Josette! Josette! Wake up, Josette!" 
         Josette awakens. The voice continues, "Hurry! Quickly!" Josette
         asks, "Who is it?" The voice replies, "Jeremiah wants you! He 
         needs you! Come to Jeremiah! Come to him! Jeremiah is not dead!" 
         Josette replies, "He is!", but the voice insists, "No, no, come
         to his grave!"  Josette asks, "Who are you?", but the voice just
         continues, "You must come to his grave! Now, Josette! He is not
         dead!"
            Meanwhile, Angelique is somewhere holding a small replica
         of a coffin in her hands. She speaks to the coffin, "He is going
         to marry her, Jeremiah! The man who killed you is already causing
         her to be unfaithful! Are you going to let her forget you so
         quickly? Are you going to let another man have her? Hear me,
         Jeremiah, hear me and arise!"
            Naomi is in the living room, taking care of her problems
         in her usual way, by drinking.  She is surprised to see Josette
         come down the stairs and asks, "Josette, what's wrong?"  Josette
         replies, "I must go out".  Naomi protests, "But it's the middle
         of the night! You can't go out all alone".  Josette replies, "I
         won't be alone for long. He's not dead! He lives!"  Naomi says,
         "Josette, you must not go!", but Josette leaves. Naomi follows her.
            Angelique opens the toy coffin, revealing a toy body wrepped
         in a shroud inside.  She continues to speak to Josette from
         a distance, "Come to him, Josette! Jeremiah is in his coffin,
         waiting for you to come to him, waiting for you to bring him
         back! Speak to him, Josette! All he needs is to hear your
         voice! 'Jeremiah! Jeremiah!' That is all he needs to hear you
         say! He needs to hear your voice! Wake him, Josette! Wake him!"
            Josette arrives at Jeremiah's grave, with Naomi right
         behind her. The voice continues, "Wake him! Say his name!"
         Josette asks Naomi, "Did you hear that?  Did you hear that voice?"
         Naomi replies, "I don't hear anything but the wind".  Josette
         exclaims, "Jeremiah! Jeremiah!"  Naomi gently tells her,
         "Josette, you know he's dead.  Come back with me. You must not
         think about him".  Suddenly, the ground starts to rumble. A hand
         pushes it's way from the dirt....

            Both women scream and run off in terror.
            Back at the old house, Joshua is talking with Andre, telling
         him, "I will not hear of your family returning to Martenique now
         with such a bitter taste in your mouth!", but Andre replies, "But 
         Natalie and I are worried about my daughter Josette. We're deeply 
         concerned about her health".  Joshua tells him,  "Jeremiah left a
         surprisingly large estate, I've discovered. It's Josette's, of 
         course.  She must stay here until the legal matters are settled".
         Their conversation is interrupted by Josette and Naomi bursting in
         through the front doors. Josette is screaming.  Joshua asks,
         "What's the matter?"  Josette asks her father, "Are you sure 
         Jeremian's dead?  Were you with him when he died?"  Andre replies, 
         "Of course he's dead."  Josette exclaims, "I went to his grave!
         He's alive!"  Naomi seconds her, "I was there with her!"  Josette
         recounts what happened. Andre suggests that she's seeing things
         because she's been under a lot of stress and asks Naomi what
         happened.  Naomi replies, "I saw the hand too!"  Joshua exclaims,
         "Impossible! You just imagined it. A trick of the moonlight!
         Jeremiah's death certificate was signed by the best of doctors!"
         Josette asks, "Then what did I see?" Andre suggests to Josette
         that she imagined seeing what she saw because she was tired and
         suggests she needs some sleep, but Josette insists, "He's alive,
         and he's going to come and find me! What are we going to do?"
         Andre assures her, "Nothing's going to happen to you. I'll take
         care of you!" and takes her upstairs.  Joshua tells Naomi they
         imagined seeing what thought they saw because of "That poor child's
         nerves and your condition - a quarter of a bottle, I would say".
         Naomi retorts,  "Witchcraft can make a dead man rise from his,
         grave", but Joshua picks up a decanter of sherry and replies,
         "Nonsense!  This is much more effective!"  Natalie says, "You refuse
         to believe what's happening! Something's happening and I just
         saw it!" She looks out the window and is shocked to see Jeremiah
         looking back at her.  She exclaims, "Joshua, quick! Joshua,
         please!" Joshua goes to the window and looks out, but Jeremiah
         has left.  He asks, "What did you expect me to see, Naomi?  There's
         nothing there, nothing at all".
            Natalie and Naomi are in the living room. Naomi tells Natalie,
         "I did not imagine that hand, or that face in the window". Natalie
         replies, "I believe you.  So you believe me now that there is an
         evil force in this house."  Naomi admits, "When you first told me,
         I thought you were mad. Now... Whoever's doing this evil, I'm
         sure it's not Miss Winters. It must be someone else".  Natalie
         asks, "Who?" Naomi replies, "I can't think clearly at this
         moment".  Natalie starts to consider suspects, "Andre? No. He
         wouldn't follow orders from anyone, not even the Devil. Anglique?
         No, I've known her since she was an uninteresting child. How about
         your servants? How about that one with the face like a snake, or
         Abigail?"  Naomi exclaims, "Impossible!"  Natalie excuses herself,
         "I must go relieve Andre now" and leaves.
            Natalie goes to Josette's room and tells Andre, "Andre!
         Go to bed! Do as I say!" She assure him she'll come look after
         Josette as soon as she, Natalie, changes.  Andre, worried, asks,
         "You won't be long?"  Natalie assures him, "No, I just have to
         change. She'll be all right. I'll see to that". They leave. A
         figure appears in the room. It is the ghost of Jeremiah. He calls
         to Josette, "Come with me! I need you! You are my wife! Come with
         me! Don't leave me!" Josette cries, "You're dead! You're dead! Help
         me! Someone, help me!"  Outside, hearing Josette's screams, Natalie
         shouts, "Josette! Josette!", opens the door and comes running in
         and sees Josette alone in the room. The ghost has disappeared.
            It is early the next morning. The sun has just risen.
         Josette awakens. Natalie tells her, "Go back to sleep. It's
         still very early".  Josette asks, "Did I dream all that?"
         Natalie replies, "I don't know what you dreamed".  Josette says,
         "I must be losing my mind!" There's a knock at the door.  Angelique
         comes in with a cup of coffee for Natalie.  Seeing Josette, she
         remarks, "Oh, Mademoiselle Josette, you're awake. I hope you're
         feeling better". She volunteers to stay with Josette.  Natalie
         says, "I could finish packing. Promise not to leave her side?"
         Angelique promises, "No, countess, I won't".  Natalie remarks,
         "At least, tomorrow we'll be in the new house." She asks Josette,
         "Sure you'll be all right?"  Josette replies, "I'm sure". Natalie
         leaves. Josette asks Angelique, "Did you hear what happened last
         night?"  Angelique responds, "Only that you were ill".  Josette
         asks, "Wouldn't you like to go back to Martenique this very
         moment?"  Angelique replies, "No."  Josette asks, "You like it
         here this much?"  Angelique replies, "Yes".  Josette asks, "You've
         decided to stay here?" Angelique replies, "Yes".  Josette asks,
         "All alone?"  ANgelique replies, "No, not all alone".  Josette
         asks, "You've found another employer?"  Angelique replies, "If Mr.
         Barnabas hasn't told you, I don't think it's my place to".
         Josette says, "I demand to know, Angelique, what should Mr.
         Barnabas have told me?"  Angelique replies, "Mr. Barnabas has done
         me the honor of asking for my hand in marriage".  Josette, shocked,
         exclaims, "Marriage?! You and Barnabas?!"  Angelique says, "I love
         him very much".  Josette says, "I see. I hope you can make Barnabas
         very happy".  Angelique says,  "I'm sure I can".  Josette tells her,
         "I wish that with all my heart"
            Joshua moves everyone to Collinwood. Joshua and Naomi are
         in the foyer. Joshua gripes, "Well, I must say, your preparations
         for this move were very bad".  Naomi proests,  "Joshua! I had only
         18 hours notice!"  Joshua continues to gripe, "Can't someone
         straighten my study?  Where's Ben?"  Natalie tells him, "All the
         servants are eating dinner".  Joshua asks, "Where's Andre DuPres?"
         Naomi replies, "He and his daughter have settled on rooms".  Joshua
         asks, "And the countess?"  Naomi replies, "She's going to have
         Jeremiah's...the room at the top of the stairs".   Natalie and
         Angelique come into the foyer, Angelique carrying Natalie's bags.
         Natalie announces, "There's a very different feeling in here!" and
         asks, "Where shall Angelique put my things? I hope you put me in a
         room next to Josette as I requested".  Naomi tells her, "We had
         planned to, but.."  Joshua finishes her sentence for her, "The
         workmen had not finished with the room yet".  Naomi assure the
         countess, "You'll be very happy with your room".  Natalie looks
         around at the house and gripes, "The color!  It's fine for a visit,
         but who would want to live in it?"  She goes upstairs, Angelique
         going up with her carrying her bags for her.
            Upstairs, outside the room that is to be Natalie's, Natalie
         tries to open the door with a key, but finds she cannot open
         the door. Angelique takes the key and says, "Let me try". As
         Angelique is trying to open the door, Naomi comes up and asks,
         "Something the matter?" Angelique tells her, "The door won't open".
         Naomi tells her, "I'll get Joshua", but before she can go, they hear
         a noise inside the room.  Natalie exclaims, "There's someone in
         there!"  Naomi replies, "Impossible. I locked that door myself".
         Natalie tries the door again and announces, "It's bolted from
         inside! Miss Winters! This must be where she's hiding! Open
         the door! Let us in! We know you're in there!" Suddenly, a loud
         male laugh comes from inside the room. Naomi shouts, "Joshua!
         Someone's in the room!!!"

            Andre comes into the hallway and finds Angelique standing
         there.  He asks, "Angelique, what was all that shouting about?"
         Angelique tells him, "This room is supposed to be the Countess',
         but we found the door looked. Then we heard footsteps inside, then
         laughter.  It frightened the Countess and Mrs. Collins so much,
         they've run to get Mr. Collins. Listen!"  Andre listens, then says,
         "I cannot hear a sound inside the room.  You said the key wouldn't
         open the door. We must find something to force it open!"  Angelique
         exclaims, "Monsieur, look!"  Andre looks and sees the the doorknob
         is turning. The door opens. They go inside and find that there's no
         one there, that the door has somehow opened by itself. They are
         shocked to see that the room (which will be David's in a couple of
         centuries) is in shambles.  Andre says, "I find it difficult to
         believe that something supernatural could be responsible for all
         this, but what other explanation could there be?"  Angelique tells
         him, "Sir, this was to be Jeremiah's room. Perhaps... "  Andre
         interrupts, "Are you suggesting that Jeremiah did all this?!"
         Angelique corrects him, "His ghost, Sir. Miss Josette saw him,
         and Mrs. Collins saw him too".  Andre admits, "I suppose that's
         the only explanation".  Angelique remarks, "I must find someone
         to straighten up this room for the Countess".  Andre tells her,
         "I'm sure she won't want it after she learns what happened in here".
         Abigail comes into the room and asks, "What has happened here?!
         The Devil has followed us into his house! The Reverend Trask
         warned about this!" Andre makes some snide remarks about Trask.
         Abigail asks, "You don't like Reverend Trask, do you?"  Andre
         replies, "The man's an out and out fraud".  Abigail says, "Perhaps
         you don't like him because he represents a threat to your family.
         I don't think that the fact the your family arrived at almost the
         exact same time Miss Winters did is a coincidence!" She accuses
         the DuPres' of having something to do with bringing witchcraft
         into the house.  Andre asks, "Are you saying we're no longer
         welcome here?"  Abigail replies, "It's not for me to say".
         Andre remarks, "It's not for you to insult your brother's guests,
         either! I will complain to him!" and storms out.  Angelique excuses
         herself, saying, "I must find someone to straighten this room" and
         turns to leave, but Abigail stops her and says, "Wait! You will
         talk to me first!"  Andelique asks, "What is it you want to talk
         about?"  Abigail tells her, "I want you to tell me about your
         trickery, Miss Angelique!"  Angelique, shocked, says, "Miss
         Collins? I do not understand..."  Abigail tells her, "I want you
         to tell me how you tricked Barnabas into marrying you".  Angelique
         exclaims, "I did not trick him!", but Abigail says, "You made a
         bargain with him, a devil's bargain!  My brother told me about it.
         You made Barnabas promise to marry you if you cured Sarah.  How
         did you cure Sarah?"  Angeique replies, "With a tea made of herbs".
         Abigail asks, "Where did you learn to make this tea?"  Angelique
         replies, "My mother taught me".  Abigail asks,  "Did your mother
         have other curative powers?"  Angelique replies, "No. She was a
         simple woman", but Abigail says, "No she wasn't, and neither are
         you! There's more to you than meets the eye! It's odd that a simple
         servant girl could accomplish what the best doctors could not. What
         other powers do you have? If you could make her well, perhaps you
         could make her sick in the first place!" She accuses Angelique of
         having made Sarah sick in the first place so she could make her
         well and get Barnabas to marry her.  Angelique denies this, "I
         wasn't even in the room when she got sick! The only people in
         the room were Sarah, her mother and...." She stops.  Abigail asks,
         "And who?"  Angelique replies, "Miss Winters".  Abigail says,
         "Either you are an ally of Miss Winters or a schemer. Either way,
         you will not make Barnabas a good wife."  Angelique vows, "I will
         be his wife".  Abigail replies, "Not if I have anything to say
         about it!" and leaves.  Angelique calls the ghost of Jeremiah.
         It appears. Angelique tells him, "You cannot go back to your grave
         yet, Jeremiah.  There is one more thing I want you to do!"
            Barnabas is in his room.  There's a knock at the door.
         It's Nathan Forbes.  Barnabas lets him in.  Nathan tells him,
         "Barnabas, I want to talk to you as a friend. I talked to
         the countess a while ago.  She told me something that gave
         me quite a jolt.  She told me you were going to marry Angelique.
         Is that true?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes".  Nathan asks why the
         sudden marriage. Barnabas replies, "It's too long a story to
         explain".  Nathan says,  "I'm concerned as a friend. Are you sure
         about what you're doing?"  Barnabas says, "I will marry Angelique".
         Nathan says, "I hope I'm not offending you, but if you've
         got to marry the girl because you've gotten her into trouble..."
         Barnabas exclaims, "I can assure you that that's not the case!"
         Nathan asks, "Do you love her?"  Barnabas replies, "I love her
         enough".  Nathan asks,  "What about Josette?  Many people were
         hoping that after a suitable period, you two would 'rediscover'
         each other".  Barnabas exclaims, "That will never happen! If you
         will excuse me, I am tired".  Nathan tells him, "I hope you and
         Angelique will be very happy" and leaves.
            After Nathan leaves, Barnabas hears a voice calling
         "Barnabas! Barnabas!" He asks, "Who are you?" The voice replies,
         "It is I, Jeremiah!"  Barnabas asks, "Where are you?"  The voice
         replies, "Here, by the window".  Barnabas turns and sees the ghost
         of Jeremiah standing by the window. Terrified, he turns and tries
         to open the door and flee, but it will not open. The ghost tells
         him, "You cannot open the door! It is locked! You must stay here
         until I am finished with you!"  Barnabas asks, "What do you want
         of me?"  The ghost replies, "I want what I did not get in life".
         Barnabas asks, "What?"  The ghost replies, "Justice!  You killed
         me, and now you want to take Josette away from me! You want to
         marry her!"  Barnabas says, "No! I will marry Angelique!", but
         the ghost says, "That is what you say, but you still want Josette.
         I am here to tell you, if you ever marry her, I will haunt you
         both for the rest of your lives!" then fades away...
            Angelique comes to Barnabas' room.  Barnabas asks, "Should you
         come to my room like this? We have enough trouble as it is".
         Angelique tells him, "I have to talk to you! There's someone
         who wants to prevent our marriage".  Barnabas asks, "Who?"
         Angelique replies, "Your Aunt Abigail".  Barnabas tells her, "She
         has nothing to say about it", but Angelique replies,  "She says
         she does. I know I entered this house as a servant, but am I to
         remain silent when someone makes accusations against me?  Your
         Aunt Abigail accused me of making Sarah sick so I could cure her
         and make you marry me!"  Barnabas promises, "I'll talk to father
         about it".  Angelique asks, "There's nothing more you can do?"
         Barnabas replies, "No, nothing", but Angelique says,  "Yes there
         is. You could marry me tonight!"  Barnabas reminds her, "But we
         promised father we would wait", but Angelique replies, "If we
         wait, we will give your Aunt time to prevent the marriage".
         Barnabas remains silent. Angelique asks, "What's wrong?  You don't
         want to go through with it, do you?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes I do".
         Angelique asks, "Then what is it?" Barnabas replies, "It's been a
         trying day."  Angelique asks, "What happened?"  Barnabas replies,
         "You wouldn't believe me".  Angelique asks him to tell her anyway.
         Barnabas tells her about Jeremiah's ghost appearing.  Angelique
         says, "Barnabas, I'm sorry. I've been so wrapped up in my own
         problems, and here you've been having a more frightening time
         than I".  Barnabas says, "I can't believe it was just my
         imagination. I saw him. I heard him!"  Angelique says firmly,
         "Barnabas, this cannot go on! I will keep being harassed by your
         Aunt Abigail, and you will keep being haunted by the ghost of
         Jeremiah. We must be married tonight!"  Barnabas promises, "I will
         speak to my father at once".   Angelique, ecstatic, says, "Thank
         you, Barnabas! Thank you for being so good to me!" and hugs him.

            Barnabas is pacing around nervously in the drawing room of
         the new house. Joshua comes down the stairs and walks into the
         drawing room, and says to Barnabas, "You wanted to see me?"
         Barnabas replies, "Yes, Father, I have made an important decision.
         Angelique and I are marrying tonight".  Joshua exclaims, "TONIGHT?!
         Have you taken leave of your senses? This is absolutely
         disgraceful!"  Barnabas says, "It is already settled", but Joshua
         replies, "Yes, it is already settled!  You will marry that girl
         when I say the time is right, or you will not marry her at all!"
         He walks out of the drawing room into the foyer, but Barnabas follows
         him out there and continues the argument, "It's no good walking out
         on me! My mind's made up! I'm going to marry the girl tonight!"
         Joshua angrily tells him, "You are going back on your word!"
         Barnabas says, "I know I agreed to wait a proper period of
         mourning, but who is to say what that period is?"  Joshua says,
         "I am!" Barnabas accuses him of trying to prevent the marriage.
         Joshua points out, "I have already agreed to let you two marry in
         good time".  Barnabas says, "You are playing for time. You are
         trying to undermine the marriage".  Joshua denies this, but
         Barnabas tells him, "You have already tried once."  Joshua asks,
         "Who told you that?"  Barnabas replies, "That's beside the point.
         Only hours after I told you about the marriage, you talked to 
         Angelique and tried to buy her off".  Joshua says, "I was trying
         to test her, to see if she was sincere or just a fortune hunter".
         Barnabas asks, "And what did you find out?"  Joshua admits, "I
         offered her $10,000.  She declined it. I found she was more
         interested in you than your money".  Barnabas firmly announces,
         "We will marry tonight".  Joshua, equally firmly, says, "There will
         be no marriage held in this house tonight. I will not permit it!"
         Barnabas retorts, "The wedding will be held somewhere else, then.
         I will marry Angelique tonight, with your blessing or without it".
         Joshua warns, "If you proceed with this folly, my blessing is not
         the only thing you will be lacking."  Barnabas asks, "What are you
         going to do?"  Joshua replies, "That depends entirely on you.
         If you marry that girl tonight, I'll cut you off without a penny!
         You will have no part in the family business, and you'll be written 
         out of my will! In short, you will no longer be a member of the 
         family!", but Barnabas firmly says, "I will marry the girl tonight!"
         again.  Joshua angrily says,  "Very well, then you and the girl 
         will leave my house by nightfall, understand?"  Barnabas starts
         to say, "Father...", but Joshua angrily proclaims, "I am no longer
         your father, and you are no longer my son!" and goes upstairs.
            Angelique is in her room, admiring what looks like a wedding
         dress. She puts the dress in a drawer. There's a knock at the
         door. It's Barnabas.  He tells her, "I must see you at once!" 
         Angelique asks, "Is something wrong?" Barnabas replies, "Yes. I 
         have some rather upsetting news for you. I've just had an argument 
         with my father. He was furious when I told him we were marrying 
         tonight. I expected that. But I did not expect him to do what he 
         did".  Angelique asks, "What did he do?"  Barnabas replies, 
         "Angelique, my father's disinherited me. If I marry you, I'll 
         be penniless".  Angelique says, "But Barnabas, your his only son. 
         I'm sure when he realizes what he's done, he'll change his mind",
         but Barnabas replies, "He will never change his mind. I've never
         known him to make a hollow threat. If you want to back out of the 
         marriage now, I'll understand".  Angelique tells him, "I do not
         want your money. I want you, in sickness and in health, in
         poverty or in wealth."  Barnabas says, "Very well. We must pack 
         our bags. Father has ordered us out of the house by nightfall".
         Angelique asks, "Where will we go?"  Barnabas replies, "We'll
         stay at the Collinsport Inn for a few days, then perhaps go to
         Boston".  Angelique asks, "Boston?"  Barnabas explains, "I'll
         never find a job in Collinsport. My father will see to that".
         Angelique vows, "I will go with you wherever you go! I will
         make you very happy! You will see!"  Josette comes into the room.
         She appoligizes, "Sorry, I did not mean to eavesdrop. I only came 
         here to get something I left here.  I could not help overhearing 
         what was just said."  She tells Angelique, "I release you from any 
         further obligation to me. I hope you all the very best. I will miss 
         you very much. I miss you very much too, Barnabas. It could've been 
         so different! How different it could've been! So good, so beautiful.
         Good bye, Barnabas".  Barnabas, his voice full of sadness, replies,
         "Good bye, Josette".
            Barnabas and Angelique come down the stairs of Collinwood,
         dressed to leave. They run into Naomi in the foyer.  Barnabas
         tells Naomi, "Mother, I was just coming to find you. Angelique 
         and I are leaving".  Naomi replies, "I know. I found out what 
         happened. I think what your father did is shocking! Come into the 
         drawing room. I have something to talk to you about before you 
         leave. Your father is not going to have the last word in this. I 
         am!" They go into the drawing room.  Naomi asks, "Where are you 
         planning to go after you leave this house?"  Barnabas replies, 
         "We plan to stay at the Inn for a few days".  Naomi tells him,
         "That won't be necessary. You can stay at the old house".  Barnabas
         protests, "But Father would never permit that!", but Naomi tells
         him, "There is no need for him to. The deed is in my name. I'm 
         giving it to you as a wedding present".  Barnabas declines the
         offer, "No! I know what trouble it would cause between you and 
         Father if I accepted!", but Naomi insists, "It's mine and I've 
         decided to give it to you. I know what your father will do. He'll 
         rant and rave for awhile, but I've learned to live with that".
         Barnabas says, "I can't!", but Naomi replies,  "Will you take
         the house, for me?  And for your father, as much as for me?  Deep
         down, he knows what he did is wrong, and one day, he'll realize
         it, and if you are too far away and he can't apoligize to you,
         it'll kill him."  Barnabas replies, "I'll take the old house.
         For you".
            Naomi is sitting alone in the drawing room of Collinwood sipping
         a drink.  Joshua comes into the room and remarks, "He's gone, and
         he's taken that girl with him".  Naomi replies, "I know. I saw them
         leave".  Joshua remarks,  "I expect he won't be gone long. Where
         will he go? What will he do? He can't get a job in Collinsport.
         He'll come crawling back. He has no money, and the Collinsport Inn
         won't let him stay there on credit for long."  Natalie tells him,
         "He's not staying at the Inn. He and Angelique are living at the
         old house".  Joshua explodes, "THE IMPUDENCE!  He won't get away
         with this! It's my property! I'll order him to leave, and if he
         refuses to leave, I will have the constable forcibly remove him!"
         Natalie calmly tells him, "You forget. The deed to the old house
         is in my name. I've given it to them as a wedding present".  Joshua
         blows up, "YOU GAVE THE HOUSE TO BARNABAS? YOU DID THIS TO SPITE
         ME!"  Naomi replies, "No, I did it because he's our only son".
         Joshua asks, "Promise me you will never see or have anything
         to do with either of them".  Naomi refuses, "I can't promise that!"
         Joshua angrily says, "I expect to be obeyed!" and storms out of
         the room. Naomi pours herself another drink...
            Outside the door of the old house, Angelique asks Barnabas, "Will
         you be long?"  Barnabas replies, "No, about an hour".  Angelique
         asks, "Are you sure the minister will come at such short notice?"
         Barnabas replies, "Yes, he's an old friend of the family" and
         leaves. Angelique goes back into the house.  She looks around,
         smiling, with an expression of great satisfaction on her face.
         The clock on the mantel strikes 8:00. Angelique suddenly stops
         smiling, seeming to sense something. She turns and sees the ghost
         of Jeremiah standing by the window. She demands, "What are you
         doing here?  Why have you suddenly materialized before me? You
         should not be here! Listen to me! I am through with you! Go back
         to your grave!  I have no further use for you, understand?" The
         ghost starts to approach her. Frightened, Angelique shouts,
         "Listen to me! I control you! It is I who raised you and I
         who can send you back! Now, go back! Go back!" but the ghost
         continues to come closer...
