Before she left that day, Mary had taught Tessa how to spell her name. Tessa watched various women from town come in disguised to talk to Mary secretly about their problems, they believed she was a witch with magic powers. Mary would read Tarot cards and send them home with a small cloth bag filled with special herbs and spices to help with their particular problems.
