The Moonstone Epilogue, Chapter 3 Summary

The Statement of Mr. Murthwaite (1850)

  • Mr. Murthwaite writes a letter to Mr. Bruff informing him that he has seen the Moonstone again!
  • It is back where it belongs, in a statue of a Hindu god of the moon.
  • He was present (in disguise) at the ceremony in which the Moonstone was replaced in the statue.
  • He even saw the three Indians there.
  • He figures the Moonstone is lost to them for good – no way will they be able to steal it back from the Indians again.
  • But the Moonstone is back where it belongs.
  • THE END.
