Over time, Hester's sin is forgotten..... people actually begin to see her badge of dishonor in a different way.

"Do you see that woman with the embroidered badge?" they would say to strangers. "It is our Hester, —the town's own Hester, —who is so kind to the poor, so helpful to the sick, so comfortable to the afflicted!"
