Summary

Miskatonic University was unable to decipher Wilbur's diary. However, Armitage decided to try anyway. Thanks to some other occult related works, Armitage was able to determine that the diary was written in a language passed down by occult experimenters. When Armitage was able to translate a page, he realized that Wilbur was writing about the aftermath of something, as he mentioned the absence of humans. Armitage continued translating, but it had a negative effect on his mental health. Later, Armitage, seemingly almost insane, called Morgan and Rice and stated that they needed to stop whatever it was that Wilbur wrote about. Armitage then experimented with some chemicals and decided to plan a trip to Dunwich in a week, but the plans changed when they saw that the destruction in Dunwich was in the newspaper.
