Continuing with our investigation: we are now in the late autumn of 1833. Finishing her duties for the day, Sojourner-Truth collects the kindling and coal, then with the coal bucket in one hand, she opens the door to the parlor and walks towards the fireplace. Sitting together around the smoldering fire, Sojourner-Truth discovers Ann and Matthias. Strangely by their appearance, Isabella (Sojourner-Truth) informs us that she felt that she had intruded on them! It is unclear why Isabella thought that she had imposed on them due to their quote. ‘Appearance.’ The implications from the words of Sojourner-Truth are interesting as it implies that she saw something as the couple sat near the fireplace, or else why would she have reported that she thought that she had intruded on them, due to their appearance. Perhaps there was a sense of intimacy, with the couple sat near the fireplace!
The following evening Ann and Matthias were again involved in a most intense conversation. Once again, Sojourner-Truth walked in on them, only this time Ann was not amused: as her eyes were according to Sojourner-Truth, quote. ‘Flashed with fire.’ Speaking out, Matthias made some crass remark resulting in both Ann and Isabella retiring to the bedroom.
