Epilogs 3: Summary

Blenheim Palace, November 1714

Bob Shaftoe, Colonel Barnes and the Duke of Marlborough are residing at Blenheim Palace and have converted it into a chapel and a vicarage where Barnes is known as the Vicar of Blenheim. Bob is the gardener and mentions that he hopes his brother never shows up here. The other men ask how that is possible because he is dead.
