Description

Catherine discovers a high black cabinet of black and gold Japan wood in her bedroom, and it reminds her of a gothic mystery Henry told to tease her. Before bed, Catherine opens the chest and pulls out a manuscript that she cannot read in the dark. She spends the night believing she has found a secret document only to discover in the daylight that it is a laundry list. This is her second mistaken assumption about Northanger Abbey, but it is still not enough to stop her from imagining herself in a gothic novel.
