Scarlet letter ch14-21
"It is the Minister!""And so it is!" said the child. "And, mother, he has his hand over his heart! Is it because, when the minister wrote his name in the book, the Black Man set his mark in that place? But why does he not wear it outside his bosom, as thou dost Mother?" Page 155
It is amazing how perceptive 7 year old children can be. How is it that this one child can pick up on that but no one else in the town can?
