anecdotes (confirmed in writing by the old gentleman) was this:--

occupied. The clothes of the deceased hung on pegs in the bedroom.

the clothes of the defunct. Then came a letter from the dead man's
brother, inquiring about the effects. He followed later, and was the
stranger seen by my gillie's father.
