To Seb, for walking the dog, making the coffee, and lis- tening to my stream-of-consciousness rambling--all without complaint.Je t'aime.
Walking Dead Still Rise in Laurel Hill Cemetery Today marks one week since the discovery of the corpse of Fredrick Weathers, son of City Councilman Thomas Weathers. Fredrick, who had disappeared two days before, was discovered at the International Centennial Exhibition as a walking corpse. His murdered is presumed to be the same person responsible for raising the Dead.
Joseph Boyer if the Spirit-Hinters stated in an interview:"The Laurel Hill corpses are under the necromancer's control and do his bidding, but as of Yet, we don not know the necromancer's identity or aim." The Spirit-Hunters arrived a week ago to protect the thousands of Centennial Exhibition visitors for the Dead. They have installed alarms throughout the Exhibition buildings in case more courses appear on the grounds. . . .
. . . The missing pages from Cairo are in a museum here, but the curators are not cooperative. These are such exciting times, my dear sister! I have begun experiments that I believe will impress you. Unfortunately, they have impressed others as well, and they are not the sort of people I want around. . . .
I am coning home on the train scheduled for next Friday (May 26). These people continue to harass me, and I feel my research will run more smoothly in Philadelphia. . . .
Dearest Sister, You must stop searching for me. You must stop seeing the Spirit-Hunter. You hurt me by being with them and worse, you put yourself in danger. With all my love, Elijah
I drifted into a healing sleep and dreamed of Elijah's smile.
