Brook smiles at the mention of the cat. "What'd his brother do?" she asks, curiously.

When Brook asks, Lucius also shows his interest in the answer by turning to the woman and looking expectantly.

"That is rather strange that the townspeople are so opposed to tourists, especially if it is mostly the tourism and history books keeping it on the maps. Why do they resent the tourists? It isn't like this is some island that tourists are ruining." Raymond asks.

"Edward Soames, Junior killed old Captain Josiah Lake fifteen years ago," Amelia told Brook. "He apparently blamed him for his parents' deaths when he was a small boy. He fled the Lake Manor, and his crushed body was found at the base of one of the cliffs. The official story is that he accidentally fell off of the cliff in his panicked flight, but there are some that say he was murdered by angry townsfolk who were pursuing him."

Amelia answered Raymond next. "Some of the locals do feel like visitors are ruining Dunwich, though there's not much left to ruin any more. A lot of the locals value their privacy highly. It's a bit of biting the hand that feeds them, but that's Dunwich for you. Personally, I'm glad of tourists and historians such as yourselves coming here, and I do like meeting new people."

"Well what with recent history like that, and its much more ancient history, Dunwich sure is an interesting place," says Elizabeth, smiling.

Lucius blinked a couple times thoughtfully, then sifted through the index of the borrowed book he carried in search of anything regarding Captain Josiah Lake or the appropriate time period, then turned to the page where he might find more information there. "That would have been roughly what... 10-20 years ago when the parents died?"

Chad:

Spoiler:
Suddenly some things started to piece together for Chad. The bells, when they were first submerged, the natural wave action of the ocean would have rung them, and it would have been audible from shore. Now while corrosion and depth had likely ended that phenomenon, it was very likely to have been true at one time, in that ancestors of Dunwich actually heard those bells and the legend based on fact was passed down within the families of Dunwich. Yet Amelia greeted the idea with great skepticism. Additionally, her description of the events regarding the murder of Joshiah Lake and the subsequent death of Edward Soames seemed relatively apathetic for what was apparently a big deal for the town. Also her split from the prevailing local opinion that tourists were unwelcome continued the trend. While Amelia had a great deal of concern for Dunwich's history, she seemed to have little social attachment to the Dunwich of the present.


Chad finds his voice. "Amelia, you said at the outset you were a volunteer for the museum. You've given us such a wonderful in depth view of so much of Dunwich's history; you must love it very much. If you don't mind me asking, what is your personal connection with Dunwich? Has your family been here long?"

"That's certainly true," Amelia said to Elizabeth, smiling back. She then regarded Lucius. "No, it was longer ago than that. The Soames boys' parents died in 1946. Virgil was just a toddler then. Hopefully he doesn't remember much about it." To Chad she added. "Thank you, young man. I do so love this town's history, and I'm glad you appreciate it. The Cressy famly has been in Dunwich for centuries. Practically every family still here has been. Once the decline was well underway, practically nobody new came here."
