As the notorious Prophet Matthias walks out of the front door, we find Ann inconsolable as she quote. ‘Commenced the most doleful lamentations, and manifesting the greatest marks of distress.’ (Ref: H87.) Turning to another witness in the form of Margaret, the estranged wife of Matthias: we find information that verifies Isabella’s version of events; when we read, quote. ‘Here they began to make arrangements to move away to some distant place. Matthias went away and was gone a week in pursuit of a place. My sons informed me that while he was gone, Mrs. Folger (Ann) was continually mourning for his absence, even crying.’ (Ref: me. 45 note 3.)
