Parallel, and within two feet of the last, we found another grave; this also contained the very short skeleton of an old person. This, though it lay nearly on a level with the last mentioned, was not much above five feet beneath the surface; the last mentioned lying between it and the road. Here also we found nothing but four strong nails, with broad heads, which had some black wood adhering to them; they were about three inches long, each. Here was much black dust and coals, the remains of a burnt, thick, coffin.
