In this story a young couple, David and Esther, either witnessed, or else dreamed that they witnessed, the return of long dead inhabitants of the Connecticut town for the space of one hour. They “seemed” to see unknown people, who wore clothing that might have been worn by the great-grandparents of the existing generation.
