The Unfortunate Burial of Squire Lewis


Author(s):
Abstract:
The unfortunate burial of Squire Lewis is a tale of the burial of an organ, its outer box thought to be the casket of Mr. Lewis. At a time when communication was slow, and unreliable, his family thought his recent stay in the hospital had taken a turn for the worse, never receiving the news that he had in fact recovered. Upon Mr. Lewis' return, and everyone's surprise at his unexpected appearance, the squire realized the organ was in fact buried in the family graveyard.
