Under the same tumulus; grave three feet deep. No appearance of a coffin; bones almost gone. Nothing. N.B. These two last mentioned graves, both of them pointed with their feet so as to describe two sides of a rectangled triangle, that is, their heads were nearly together; but the feet of one of them pointed to the east, and the feet of the other pointed to the north; and between the two graves was a small narrow trench which had a kind of communication with them both, but had nothing in it. This trench may not improperly be called the hypotenuse of this very odd sepulchral triangle.
