Saalem, September 24, 1883.

Some time in September, 1883, a blind, imbecile, and self-willed old woman
left her home under the pretext of going to see some relatives close by. Finding
she did not return home that night the people of the house where she lived
naturally concluded she had stayed with her friends. However, early on the
second day, hearing she had not been to their house, but had been seen
wandering through some fields, they became alarmed and people were sent,
but to no purpose, in search of her. [159] On the third day her relatives had a
Mass said in honor of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and St. Anthony,
with the promise of publishing it in the Sanct Franzisci Glocklein were she
found, but in spite of inquiries being made in every direction and in the
surrounding villages, they met with no better success than on the preceding
day. Finally, long after one o'clock in the afternoon one of the searchers
noticed a lonely path leading into the woods, where the poor creature, more
dead than alive, was found sitting under a tree, but so exhausted for want of
food, which she had not tasted for more than two days, that it was with great
difficulty she was carried home. She is now, thank God, in perfect health.
