"The Blue Feather."
A long Uncle Silas tale, in which Silas recalls being caught poaching at the Castle Hanwick, and his subsequent adventures with the crazed woman of the house; refusing to get his cap from under her bed sheets, he is faced by the woman "starve naked, with a double-barrel gun in her hands." "Not long arter that they took her away, poor gal...She'd been away afore, but I never knowed." A television adaptation starring Albert Finney was aired in 2001. In Sugar for the Horse (1957).
