But just as they were about to land they observed the figure of a young woman sitting near one of the head-stones.
There he with his own hands draws water from the well, washes the head-stones of the graves, and anoints them with oil.
One inscription on the head-stones would answer for nearly all, and marked "unknown."
These consisted mostly of scrolls, wreaths, and mortuary dove-wings for head-stones.
The head-stones were then very small, and had little on them except "Here lyeth the body of" so-and-so, and the date.
So, side by side they returned, picking their steps among the graves and head-stones, to the old church porch.
