  • Widow Daventry has been beaten by soldiers and is weeping.
  • She is angry with Crispin because of all that has happened, and she's also a little angry with Bear for getting mixed up with the likes of John Ball.
  • She tells Crispin he needs to hide in the secret compartment until nightfall, when he needs to get out of town.
  • She believes the soldiers will torture Bear to try to find Crispin, but either way Bear's a goner.
