Note: First published (as by "the author of Sights from a Steeple") in The Token, 1836.

Synopsis: Mr. Hooper the minister begins wearing a black veil over his face for reasons no one knows. It seems to represent some secret sin. His fiancee, finding him too gloomy, breaks off their egnagement, but he becomes a very effective preacher.
