Everdene's Escapades - 14 July 1858

News from across the heath, where young Bathsheba Everdene has apparently disappeared. Gabriel Oak passed on the news on his way down to Casterbridge from Weatherbury. As ever, Gabriel had that look of combined solicitude, resignation and stoic loyalty that ends up looking more like constipation.  But Gabriel didn't have a look of fear on her behalf, so I suspect he may know more than he's letting on.
