Quote #7

The stories of Brouwer, of Bones, and a whole budget of others, were called to mind; and when they had diligently considered them all, and compared them with the symptoms of the present case, they shook their heads, and came to the conclusion that Ichabod had been carried off by the galloping Hessian. (1.71)

The supernatural wins again. According to the citizens of Sleepy Hollow, there can be no other, more probable explanation. What does this tell us about this little town?

Quote #8

The school-house being deserted, soon fell to decay, and was reported to be haunted by the ghost of the unfortunate pedagogue; and the ploughboy, loitering homeward of a still summer evening, has often fancied his voice at a distance, chanting a melancholy psalm tune among the tranquil solitudes of Sleepy Hollow. (1.73)

Just like that, Ichabod becomes a scary story himself. It's the circle of life. Elton John music not included.
