Silas Marner Chapter 7
Silas is suddenly spotted in the Rainbow, to the townspeople's surprise: they think at first that he is a ghost. He tells the group that his money has been stolen, and he accuses Jem Rodney. When Jem denies that he had taken Silas's money, the townspeople demand that Silas tell them the events leading up to the theft. When he finishes his story, he apologizes to Jem. The townspeople immediately feel sorry for Silas, who is clearly devastated.
