Summary

Woman with the second sight who knew a man in a coffin wasn't dead.

A funeral procession was going to Mornish. A woman insisted they come in to her house for food. They set the coffin by the fire while they ate. After a time, they heard a noise coming from the coffin. The body was not dead at all, and the heat had revived it. He came out, had something to eat, and went home with the men. The woman knew the man was alive.
