Do not worry about Abigail, she was in cohort with the driver, they have both been caught and are in the town Jail.

    Commander Mike was sitted in the Stone Mansion living room when he relayed the news of him marrying Mary to his mother, who expressed her fear“What nonsense? it is beyond my understanding how Nicholas Sanders would think I would marry his daughter.
