    Read XXII. The Procession of The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The text begins: Before Hester Prynne could call together her thoughts, and consider what was practicable to be done in this new and startling aspect of affairs, the sound of military music was heard approaching along a contiguous street. It denoted the advance of the procession of magistrates and citizens, on its way. American Gods is some kind of miracle.
